Menjangan Island Bali Indoensia

100th post! looking back at my 5 year blogging journey…

It’s almost hard to believe, but here it is, my 100th blog post! Since I created my diving blog in January 2012, during a jet-lagged all-nighter in Singapore, on my way to my first trip to Indonesia, so much has happened. I went from warm seas dive traveller to pro adventure blogger not afraid to dive below the ice. Sometimes, after long hours of

Dive camp weekend in Zeeland, Netherlands

My beginnings with scuba diving are surprisingly linked to Belgium. After a few trips in Thailand, Egypt and Mexico, this is where I organised a gathering of dive travel addicts from all over Europe. This event with its cultural mix and passion for scuba diving from every attendee profoundly inspired the first articles on this blog. I went back 2 years later and as

My first rebreather experience at DIVE2016, Birmingham, UK

Yes, you can definitely spend your entire weekend at a dive show and still have a lot of fun! This is exactly what I did last weekend in Birmingham, UK, for the 2016 edition of the DIVE show. Not only I got to talk with incredible people, discover new destinations to inspire your next dream scuba diving holiday or adventure, but I also tried shiny

Diving Tenerife: eagle rays & volcanic magic

Take a group of nine adventure travel bloggers specialised in surfing, cycling and scuba diving to the mecca of British package holidays, shake it well, and see if you can show that Tenerife, the biggest of the Canary Islands, has more to offer than lazy sunbathing. This is the mission my adventure blogging mates and I were given by Thomas Cook Airlines. With a bit

Mission Gozo Blue Hole

While I was diving in Malta, I couldn’t resist visiting its sister island, Gozo (Għawdex in Maltese). Only 14km by 7km, Gozo is a short ferry ride away on the northwest side of the Maltese Archipelago. I heard many times that it was a favourite among European scuba divers for a sunny scuba diving hideaway. However, the goal of my trip to Malta was mainly wreck diving. So I initially

Diving Malta: a first-timer guide

I wasn’t supposed to go on summer holidays that year. But when one of my dive buddies told me he found good deals on return flights for the end of July, in the middle of the peak season, 1 hour and 200€ less on my bank account later, I had booked a 10-day diving trip to Malta. I had visited the Mediterranean island country once

Becoming a certified wreck diver in Malta

With scuba diving in tropical colourful reefs, I think wreck diving should come next on the list of reasons why people dream of becoming scuba divers. The legends of famous ships and their hidden treasures are often the reasons to explore these historic artificial reefs. Whether you are passionate by the history of the ships, or you just love the challenge of scuba diving through a complex

A weekend in Valletta before diving all around Malta

Knowing that Malta is one of the most touristic places in South Europe, I didn’t want to limit my experience to a seaside resort town even if the primary purpose of my 10-day holiday in the Mediterranean archipelago was scuba diving. I love exploring cities as they are usually full of history and culture. I decided that a relaxing weekend in Valletta, the smallest
