Two days earlier than originally scheduled we started the PADI IDC on Malapascua due the amount of candidates. A total of 8 IDC candidates are welcomed and I have a couple of firsts with Hakan from Turkey and Franzi from Luxembourg, my first candidates from these countries.

The next couple of days are going to be action filled and interesting to see how they all develop, so keep an eye open for updates.
