Time Off after Cayman
Fast forward a few years I took some time off scuba diving and worked an office job, but started to realize how much the 9-5 life wasn’t for me. So I called up my old company and told them I was available. I listed some really unrealistic scuba diving locations, that basically never had openings, that I wanted to work in (they had yachts all over the world) - Galapagos, Cocos Islands, Maldives, Raja Ampat, and Palau. The HR lady told me it was highly unlikely any of those would become available, but if she had an open she would give me a call. Two months later I got a call saying an opening had come up in Palau, two months after that call, on a rainy day in January, I jumped on a plane to Micronesia.
