And we have lift-off…

Ahoy there, welcome to my blog! This is the first post of many that will showcase some of the amazing experiences that this world has to offer.

In this blog, I hope to document and share my travels, and to share my knowledge and experience with fellow travelers who wish to go to some of the places.

It is an over-used phrase, but I also hope to give my viewers a few tips and pieces of advice that I discovered along the journey. Things that I wish I had known in advance that would have made the trip cheaper, easier and more engaging.

Finally, I hope to use this space for collaboration and dialogue, so if you have any questions, suggestions, or anecdotes I would love to hear from you! I am also committed to exploring and sharing meaningful and poignant stories of any kind, so if you are working on a project or are in the same area/timezone at any given time, then drop me a message and we can unite forces!

Here’s to the next wild ride!
Just remember to…

Keep moving and travel light,
Because you don’t know where you’ll end up…

Koh Tao Scuba Diving, Thailand

The first underwater footage using my Go-Pro, filmed just off the coast of Thailand on Koh Tao island

Koh Tao (Turtle Island) is probably the cheapest place in the world to get SCUBA certified, with dive shops dotted all along the island. An overnight train from Bangkok to Surat Thani and a two hour ferry ride in the early morning will get you to it’s azure shore, from which you can immediately immerse yourself into some of the clearest, most diversely populated water this side of the Pacific.

Many thanks to Phoenix Divers for an unforgettable experience, as well as to an array of amazing individuals I met doing my Open Water course. I highly recommend finding and booking your course at Phoenix Divers.
