WAD’s 10th anniversary: celebrating my new nomad life in Panama

10 years. Depending on how you look at it, it may sound like a lot or not so much. I feel saying I launched my diving blog 10 years ago makes me sound like a dinosaur.

My dive computer is the only piece of my scuba gear I can keep close to me every day. I use it as a watch; it is my link to the ocean, reminding me my next dive is only a matter of time.

Gran Canaria: my first trip abroad since COVID

This story started back in December 2020. France is under curfew after a second lockdown. At least, this time, I was away from Paris with my family in Brittany.
