Exactly one year after my intro to tech I finally took the chance to officially enter the world of technical diving with TDI. As I never had the interest of diving deep or with a lot of gear it was a different and wonderful experience. Doing a dive course with another dive organization as well as being the student instead of the instructor was even more exhilarating... diveoclock.com/blog/TDI_Advanced_Nitrox/...
