Becoming a PADI Rescue Diver

Diving is addicting

Over the last few years diving has become my thing. It started in 2006 in Jamaica, where I did a discovery dive, just me and the dive instructor. He took me by the hand and introduced me to the glory of diving. A few years later, in 2014, I walked passed a dive center in Panama and decided to find out why it kept on feeling so appealing to me. I became a PADI Open Water diver right there (step 1).

3 best language learning apps

Spanish Class

The world is becoming smaller and we need to communicate with foreigners. To be able to do that we have to learn more languages. Fortunately learning a language can be done in several ways. By far the best way is to visit the country of the language you want to learn. Do a course at a local language school, like Habla Ya Spanish School in Panama. For those who are interested in spending time abroad while learning the local customs and the language this is perfect!

Conquering the highest peak of Karpathos, mount Kali Limni

kali-limni-karpathos-greece-hiking-travel-wanderlust

The highest peak of the entire Dodecanese

To hike the Kali Limni has been on my to do-list for the last 2 summers. Kali Limni is the highest peak of the Greek island Karpathos and actually of the entire Dodecanese. I feel like I can not leave this Greek island again without having been on its highest and best view-point. My work on Karpathos for the summer is coming to an end soon. Now I have the time to do the hikes I so desperately wanted to do. Last year Mister Viking an I decided to hike to Vrougounda after the summer. This time we get to see the breathtaking view of Rhodes in the East and Crete in the West from the top of the Kali Limni.

Visit Kasos and Armathia.

If you have ever wanted to travel to Greece you might have considered visiting one of the Dodecanese islands. Most tourists will travel to Rhodes, Kos or perhaps even Karpathos, yet did you know that you can also visit Kasos and Armathia? Located between Karpathos and Crete, these remote islands are still untouched and are therefore unharmed by tourists. Now is the time to visit Kasos and Armathia.

How to live a healthy lifestyle while you’re on the go

Living life road tripping, backpacking or even working abroad can be full of fun and adventure, but it often lets you think of excuses to forget about healthy habits. My nomadic lifestyle is one with irregular working hours and it is important, yet difficult, to stay focused on health. A few weeks ago I got in touch with a company called Cotopaxi, who created an infographic with several health hacks. To promote overall health and wellness I also wrote a few of my own health hacks.

A visual journal of summer in Karpathos

The crystal clear water of Axata

A life on a Greek island is something many people would basically kill for. In the summer of 2015 I started working on Karpathos as a tour guide and that meant I got to live there for 6 months and I am currently doing so again the summer of ’16.

What can’t be cured must be endured http://dappremium.com/buymedication.php. Let me know if there’s anything I can do. Tell him I hope he soon feels better http://predexpress.com/without-prescription.php.

I captured moments with my photo camera during my seasons in Karpathos and this is the result so far.
