For my divemaster training, I’ve been in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, for a few weeks now. With customers and my instructor, I spent every day in the water. I adored it! I began to notice that another dive shop was also training a divemaster as we shared the boat with them.

I started talking to her because she seemed to be my age. Janice, who is originally from Canada, is also infatuated with the ocean and diving in general. We began to hang out more and more, eventually developing into very close friends.
