Just another day in paradise, or so it seems. We have been spending the last weeks or even months in Mexico’s dazzling city of Playa del Carmen. Basically relaxing and just waiting for our IDC (PADI’s Instructor Development Course) to start. Yesterday we got some bad news though and now it seems we might need to leave the pretty Yucatan Peninsula. ...read more!
It took us a year to finally find the right place for our Divemaster course. We were in search for an instructor who would be willing to teach and show us everything on how to become a pro. We ended up in la isla bonita – really named Isla Mujeres in Mexico. Having already a great quantity of dives logged and therefore plenty of diving experience we were more than ready to start the Divemaster course.
Let me tell you all about it – our Divemaster course in Isla Mujeres. ...read more!
The last few weeks have been intense while also super relaxed. About two months ago mr. Viking and I set foot on Mexican soil again after having been working our asses off for 6 months in Greece. Now we haven’t quite been sitting still over here either, but without to much pressure. This winter we started our Mexico travels in Playa del Carmen, where we currently are as well. We had however never though of ending up here again after two months, but the island hopping we have been doing in the meanwhile pretty much led us back here. Now before I start telling you what we are doing here in PDC I’d love to tell you what happened from the beginning. ...read more!
We just spent a week in Tulum visiting the archaeological site of Tulum, snorkeling in Gran Cenote, getting an epic dive experience at The Pit and Cenote Dos Ojos, relaxing at the nearby beach, swimming with big sea turtles at Akumal and on our last day we made a worthwhile trip to the famous Chichen Itza. ...read more!
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). ...read more!
As I enjoy sharing my travel experiences for those who need inspiration or even motivation I now created my first travel guide. Today, we’re going to have a look at traveling through Panama! I spend 2 weeks in Panama alone in the spring of 2014 and another 4 weeks with my boyfriend in the spring of 2016. ...read more!
If you’re traveling to Panama and looking for the Caribbean reggae vibe you cannot miss out on a visit to Bocas del Toro. Think sandy beaches, crystal clear water, surfing and diving, good food and happy people. ...read more!
Before we settled in for the long haul flight to Mexico’s Cancun I Googled about the natural phenomenon that stole my attention a few years ago. I was never close enough to the area of cenotes to reach them, but this time my boyfriend and I were going to spend some time in Tulum. We started planning on trying to find some hippie beach spots to relax at while knowing the cenotes are basically going to be in our backyard. I just had to investigate and learn a bit more about sinkhole diving knowing that we have the cenotes so nearby. ...read more!
We went for a couple of dives in Amoopi and did quite a lot of dives at the beach of Votsalakia. Here’s a video of a complete dive we did in Votsalakia, where we spotted a sea star, caves, strange tiny jellyfish and some other kinds of fish still undefined.
It’s time to leave this gorgeous tropical diving paradise island named Utila. Well, for now that is. I am sure I will be back sooner or later for some more diving and visiting the super sweet people I have met over here. However, let me focus on my next destination Copan, where Maya ruins can still be found in very, very good conditions. I can definitely not skip this ancient city during my voyage towards Guatemala. ...read more!
Having just arrived to Bocas del Toro I thought it would be good to walk around and explore town a bit. At first I wandered around and did not even notice the diving school until I turned around and walked right up to a sign saying “The Dutch Pirate”. I believe the name was very appealing to me but on the other hand also repelling since I tend to avoid Dutch things while being abroad. I decided to enter the Dutch pirate’s office anyway to find out what my destiny here in Bocas was. …read more!
