Florine : travel blogger & PADI divemaster
Born in Nantes, France, the hometown of Jules Vernes, after spending more than 20 years along the Atlantic Ocean, in La Baule, swimming and wind surfing, I have developped a serious travelling and scuba diving addiction.
So far, I have travelled to 40 countries including 2 years in Scotland, 1 year in Canada, 2 months in Thailand, 1 month in Indonesia, 1 month in the Philippines, 1 month in Mexico and 1 month in Argentina. If you ask me where I’m from, I will answer that home is everywhere I had the time to make meaningful connections.
I became a scuba diver at 25 during my first solo backpacking trip in Thailand. Since then, I have been exploring the world even more intensively. 3 years and a half later, I came back to Thailand to become a Divemaster. With more than 400 dives all around the world, today my scuba specialities are deep diving, drysuit diving, nitrox, ice diving, wreck diving and underwater photography/videography.
In 2012, I started putting together my thoughts and pictures into inspiring articles about each destination I have travelled to. This how I created WorldAdventureDivers.com, a dive travel blog to share the way I love to travel.

Beyond scuba diving, I’m always eager to discover more about culture, art and cuisine everywhere I go. My native language is French, but I’m a fluent speaker in English & Spanish. As I’m a lifelong language nerd, my new challenge is to learn Japanese. I started learning English at 6, so it is almost my second native language. It felt more natural for me to write this blog in English as a medium to connect with as many scuba travellers as possible around the world. I also have started to translate some of my articles into French as part of a partnership with Aqua Lung.
