Honaunau National Historical Park Big Island Hawaii

2 weeks in Hawaii : my ultimate itinerary for scuba divers

"Are you getting married, Florine?", "Did you go on honeymoon?" "Whaaaat? Nooo..." This is pretty much the type of conversation I had on and on, before and after my trip to Hawaii. The reason?

Verzasca Express: adventurous river diving in Ticino, Switzerland

Although I dream about South East Asia or the Caribbean like most scuba divers, I think we often forget how lucky we are in Europe to have such a density of incredible destinations to explore just a short-haul flight away. With European low-cost airlines, in less than 2 hours and for less than a hundred ...
