Aside from securing yourself commercial diving insurance, here are some other diving hacks that you should be aware of.
Rise With The Sun
The living abroad experience isn’t likely to be permanent and definitely not like staying in a hotel, so try to be up as early as the sun rising. Why? Because being able to dive as the reef wakes up around you is better than sleeping in.
Slow Down And Enjoy The Dive
Take your time diving. Though land-based operators have a schedule to get you in the water and back on time, that schedule may be rushed. So don’t feel like you have to hurry up and explore everything underwater. Besides, all the diving trips take place right under the boat, so you can rest assured they’d still be there when you get back.
Have A Back Up For Your Backup
When you are diving you are only as good as your equipment. Especially when your life may depend on said equipment so having a backup is not enough. You must always make sure you are prepared and ready for anything. Furthermore one cannot always rely on diving instructors however well trained they are.
Pay Attention To Your Core Temperature
You went chose a diving trip to enjoy and explore the beauty underwater, not to be kept indoors shivering in discomfort. If you don’t want that happening, make sure you keep your core temperature in check all the time. You can catch hypothermia even in tropical water. Dry yourself fully and change in between dives to prevent your temperature from dropping.
Respect Your Fellow Diver’s Space
Yes you’re excited and maybe scared at the same time, but try to keep that energy to a minimum. Your fellow divers are in the same position as you. So focus on yourself and let everyone enjoy themselves too.
You got off to a good start by getting a visa and booking your journey to the UK. The thought of moving to a new country probably also comes with a lot of anxiety. That’s why we’ve put together this list of six steps for a flawless transition when moving to the UK so you get off to the best start.
1. Keep A Positive Mindset
It’s an incredibly daunting task to move to a new country and it can also be confusing and lonely. That’s why you need to hit the ground with a positive attitude, which is pretty easy really. The hard part is maintaining that positive attitude when things start going wrong. Think about the things you did to stay positive in your home country and find a way to do them in the UK. Join a yoga club, go running, take dancing classes, start cooking, or just dig into some comfort. No matter what it is that makes you comfortable find a way to do it so that you can keep feeling good even when it gets bad.
2. Buy a SIM Card
You need your phone and your phone needs a SIM card. One of the first things you need to buy when touching ground is a SIM card for your phone. If you want to be really prepared you should pick one up before you even leave so you’re always in touch.
3. Buy an Oyster Card (Or the Local Variant)
If you’re going to London then you really need an Oyster card. This is a little blue card that you top up with pay-as-you-go credit for travelling on public transport such as trains and busses. It’s the cheapest way to get around London and you should pick one up at your first opportunity. Even if you aren’t living in London many places have a local variant that does the same job.
4. Create A Bank Account
Opening up a bank account might end up being the most unpleasant thing you have to do but it’s still necessary and there are ways you can make it easier on yourself. You can open one up before you leave, as soon as you arrive, and in just one day. The best part is that you don’t need proof of residence to open a British bank account. If you try to go your own way you’ll need a utilities bill or something else that could serve as proof of residence and a lot of time and patience. If you’ve just arrived in the country there’s very little chance you’ll have all the documents you need.
5. Get a Job
Getting a job should be one of your main priorities if you aren’t moving because you’ve already secured work. You need to update your CV so that it’s formatted to British standards and take it down to a reputable recruitment agency who can help you get started finding work. The best recruitment agencies will often be able to find work for you. If you’ve already got a marketable skill then you might want to think about contracting, but this is would require you to have some money to stay afloat while you get started and build your business, you'll also need to get a National Insurance Number, NI Apply offer a great service to ensure you get a card as soon as possible.
6. Find a Home
There are plenty of places to stay in the UK including shared accommodation, apartments, houses, and hostels. You could also rent out a property. Start out by finding something temporary until you get settled. Hostel World is a great way to find a hostel while House Share can help you find shared accommodation. Remember that you might need to pay a deposit when renting a property and so you need a bank account, which is a bit silly considering you need proof of residence to even open a bank account!
