3 Things To Prepare Before Bali Scuba Diving Courses

Living on a beautiful and tropical island is the dream of many people. Being able to enjoy the sunrise and sunset is the best moment. Vacationing on the island of Bali as the best tourist destination provides many advantages. Getting underwater is an extreme experience that can open your eyes. Opening your eyes to see a world you’ve never seen before. Diving may seem very easy. There are many preparations to follow Bali scuba diving courses.

Do It Properly

Diving is not the same as swimming. Diving does not just go into the sea. Underwater environmental conditions differ from swimming pool or mainland. When deciding to dive, you must pocket a diving certificate. This is the identity card that you deserve to dive. The higher your flying hours, the higher the certificate level the more beautiful the waters you can explore.

What Happens With The Human Body When Diving?

While in the air, the warmth of a person’s body will decrease 20 times faster than when you are in the mainland. Without proper practice, you can experience hypothermia. Barotrauma is another disease that can be caused by diving. That is middle ear injury due to increased underwater pressure. Adaptation of the ear to high-pressure conditions can be done with equalizing or equilibrium.

When diving, a person may experience nitrogen narcosis. This happens because there is excess nitrogen in the body that causes a person to lose consciousness. In certain cases, narcotic nitrogen can lead to coma. This may happen to someone when diving with a depth of 10 meters.

What To Do Before Do Scuba Diving?

Waterskill

Bali scuba diving courses are your primary requirement for diving. Waterskill can be obtained when you are doing scuba diving training. If the basics of diving can be mastered, then you will master the dive field with ease. Waterskill base in Bali scuba diving courses is a 10 minutes training float. Swimming without a 200-meter tool should also be done as a training requirement.

Healthy Requirements

You should do a checkup stating that you meet the health requirements. Health history overall, chest X-ray, electrocardiogram (EKG), lung function, audiogram, visual acuity, complete blood test, urine test, and several other tests. You must complete the questionnaire before following the scuba diving courses at the dive center where you registered. Do not force dives if you have coronary heart disease and asthma.

Lean Your Dive Tools

Before a real dive, you must learn to know the dive equipment. For example, understand how the hose of scuba tube to breathe under the sea. The introduction of dive equipment is the key to your success or failure. Ask for details about the function and use of appropriate dive equipment.

What’s to Expect From Your Komodo Tour Package?

Indonesia is full with the adventures, especially when talking about it as the archipelagic country. Thousands of island are existing in here and one of the favourite and most popular island especially for monitoring the Komodo dragons is the Komodo Island that is located at Province of East Nusa Tenggara. If you have ever heard about it, have you been thinking before about getting your own Komodo tour package for your next travelling? As its name, many or might be most of the available tour operators are usually using the phrase Komodo Tour to be included into their package for the tourists around the world.

Komodo tour expectation

And there are some reasons about that. The first one, Komodo tour is really special even if you are trying to compare it with the other tour packages in the world. It is because that the Komodo Island itself is still being the original habitat for the Komodo dragons and the amount of the living biggest lizards are thousands. And they are scattered on several other islands, but the main one is the Komodo Island. At Komodo Island, there is also a special beach which is the Pink beach that is only existed for about hundreds in the world. There are still many other reasons why you need the Komodo tour package, but, hopefully we’ll be explained at different article.

What’s to expect from a Komodo Tour Package?

Seeing Komodo dragons some meters in front of you may will not included into what’s to expect from a Komodo tour package. Moreover, it is the main attraction for the package. So I think you will not need as well.

And for the first thing to expect will be: Visiting several destinations but not only the Komodo Island. Related to this, I am calling the Komodo tour package myself as the archipelagic package. It is because, chances are you will not only visit the Komodo Island but also the other such as Padar, Kelor and many more. The islands are close enough to each other, so you may need to makes it sure or directly asking your tour guide about this. But mostly, the package will not only for one island.

And since each islands have different uniqueness, you may also will visiting the various destinations on it along with the available and interesting attractions. For example, you at Kelor Island you could enjoy the breathtaking view from top of the hill that only takes about 15 minutes trekking or simply sunbathing on the white sand beach before the hill. You are possible to experience along with the others destinations whether after or before visiting Komodo Island. So, getting the Komodo tour is somehow a must for me or maybe you as well. Who knows.

The second is: Diving and snorkling. Most of the islands have their own beach(es) or maybe all of them consist of the stretched white sands on their coastal areas. And since the main access to reach all the islands is by using the boat, so it will be easier if you are interested in swimming, diving or simply snorkeling whether in Komodo Island or the others. For you information, the Komodo tour itself also providing service like diving at Komodo Island. Not only to experience the beauty of the coral reefs, but also there’s thing like Manta Point to monitor the mantas in certain season. The dive sites are various as well. So, you may need to check them all if you are planning for this.

And the last you could expect is; Trekking the hills. If you want to see the lizards, then trekking can’t be avoided. So with to enjoy the landscape. Many of your activities will be involving trekking, especially at Komodo Island, Padar Island, and many more. So you may need your body be ready about it when deciding to get the Komodo tour package.

The above 3 thing will likely to be experienced and may can not be deviated away from your expectations of Komodo tour package for the next vacation plan. And actually there are more than that, but those are the very common things that most likely to happen.

Why You Should Always Bring Your Travel Hammock

Yeah, always try to bring your own travel hammock with you. I mean, not all the times. But when it comes to travelling, it is better to considering it to be taken. You don’t want to miss all the new and unexpected experiences, do you? Even before you have bought one in your bag, there’s no chance you would have imagined that the hammock will be so much easier to be put in your backpack. You don’t even need to master how to fold it just like your neat t-shirts in your cabinet although that would be helpful as well.

Anyway, I don’t know much about how far have it been improved up to this day since it had been invented. But the travel hammock that I am talking about for now is the lightweight and portable one, water resistance, durable, super compact so you will be save much times in preparing the luggage, and many more that making it as the one of the “must to bring” item while travelling. At least that what I am thinking.

Reasons you should be thinking about bringing a travel hammock

Before travelling, we keep on looking for the accommodation. Where to stay. We keep on seeking the comfort and affordable, spacious, or even the luxury one to get the best of our journey especially when dealing with the destination in the heart of the city. While a travel hammock itself simply provides an outdoor and indoor sleeping experiences that in fact is so comfort, healthy, creating the more adventurous feeling, etc. Although sleeping in a hotel could not be compared with the usage of a hammock for various reasons, but bringing a hammock to your journey surely will make you thinking about where else you could setting it up. There are big chances you will be telling yourself about that, trust me.

And not only those above reasons why a travel hammock should always be considered to be brought to your destinations. I will also listed down below to get as specific as I could to encourage you to do the same, or at least thinking about it.

1. Compact, lightweight and durable

I know that I have mentioned before about this, but I think that I will still need them in the list because you will be save more times in preparing your travel hammock, won’t burden your shoulder for its lightweight design and there are many of the manufacturer that giving the warranty even up to 10 years. Your bag will have more enough space so you might need it for the other items.

2. You will sleep better and deeper inside your travel hammock

That’s being said and claimed scientifically. It is great for your body and mind when sleeping in your travel hammock. I won’t getting more specific about how to achieved the better and deeper sleep since all you just need to do is a proper adjustment of your hammock and your sleep position. But the fact is, deeper sleep surely the better. And using the hammock will give you bigger chance for that. Better from your own comfort bed. There are even many people have been using a hammock for years, and they are feeling better comparing to the result of sleeping on the regular bed.

3. It may becomes the cheaper accommodation

You have not only a better and healthy sleeping, but also, when you bring your travel hammock, that could be the cheaper accommodation you have so far. Moreover if you are travelling to the supported spots or areas that possible for you to setting it up. And it will only take 5 or 10 minutes before you are sleeping away.

4. Getting more experiences

I know that you may setup your travel hammock for about a meter or more above the ground, or considered as not too high. But the thing is, it is really different for laying down or sitting at the same height when using a hammock than a chair or the same items. May it because the flexibility, the comfortability and many more that makes it open the new way of experiencing the same thing you have been through before.

For example, laying down or sitting in your hammock at the beach to enjoy the sunset. Although it may the regular or one of the common thing among many in this world, still it feels different. And you may wondering around about how could this happening for the same activity that we keep on repeating?! But this time it is changing, especially when talking about your feeling.

Imagine using the travel hammock for other common things, doesn’t sound interesting and worth trying? Not to mention about the adventurous experiences it could provide such as sleeping above the river’s current, between the cliffs, and many more unexpected and surprised spots.

5. It is fun and exciting

Ok, I am going to get this straight. I know that some of the travellers seems thinking that “fun” is only for a child or the amateur one. But whatever the assumptions have been spoken out, let’s forget about it for awhile. I simply thinking for now that it will be more fun for a father or a mother laying their head inside the travel hammock with the son or daughter. I think that children will really love it. Imagine that what if you are doing it while taking your family to the beach. What a really thing to try!

And for you that considering yourself as an dangerous enthusiast, to get more excited about the usage of the travel hammock, you may could challenge yourself for hammocking between the cliffs or even the skyscrapers if possible. But please, just stay safe and sound without getting yourself harmed. No need to proof anything.

6. You don’t have to find the trees

Travel hammock without trees

When talking about the travel hammock, your might thinking about hanging the hammock between the trees since there are many videos and images that showing us like that. But to be honest, you are really don’t necessarily need them. You could change it with the poles if existed or getting your own hammock stand that could be folded down and then reconstruct it and which will then allow you to hang your hammock anywhere. Even in your own bedroom if the space is enough for it.

While camping at outdoor like in the forest, using the travel hammock will also beneficials in leaving the spot without a trace and you won’t need to worry about harming the trees as well. Of course it will be a great and a safer way for exploring the nature, don’t you agree with that?

7. Can a hammock provides the shelter for the homeless?

For the short answer; Yes, surely it can. I am not confused by this topic while writing down about this, but when us, as a big society could not possible sharing home with the homeless, you may could help them with your travel hammock. And I hope the hammock manufacturers in the world are thinking about this as well. In case they might want to included into their company’s social responsibility. Why not?

Not only that reason why I am informing you that. Travelling itself could makes you as the homeless guy. Especially if you have not found any accommodation in the destination where you are desperately visited. Although there are many alternatives you could choose, I think one possible thing among them is the travel hammock itself. Moreover, we never know what awaits us for the next.

Get yourself ready for anything!

I know that you have made a perfect plan for your travelling. Where the best to stay in the city, what mountain should be hiked, all of your itineraries are perfectly mapped out as you are thinking. But, how could not your holiday going wrong? Surely I hope the best for you, but still, you need to anticipate for the unexpected things. And for that, I would like to reminds you to always considering to bring your travel hammock for accompanying you while adventuring whether to the different state or even another country at different continent. Especially in treating it as your own shelter. Because in reality, you have known that sometimes the perfect plan is not all the thing you need.
