NIGHT DIVING

I’ve never liked night diving. It wasn’t even that I was afraid of it, I just chose to completely ignore any comments or remarks anyone had about night diving. I had made up my mind about it and it was never for me. However, recently I went out for a night dive and to my surprise; it was not all as bad as I had imagined it would be. As an…

ABROLHOS ISLANDS

I’ve spent the last few days on a liveaboard in the Abrolhos Islands, located 80 kilometers west of Geraldton, Western Australia. I was teaching an Open Water Course along with another Instructor to girls from the Presbyterian Ladies’ College, Perth. It’s been a great while since I’ve been out on the boat and have almost forgotten how welcoming it was. We had left early in the morning before sunrise and…

A MOMENT WITH A COD

I am so happy to be able to be in the water today, more than usually anyways, for PADI’s International Woman’s Dive Day with two beautiful ladies on their Open Water Course. In April of 2012, I decided to take a step to becoming a Scuba Diver. Since then, I’ve adopted a new Identity; marine conservationist. I was always an activist of sorts and an animal lover, but diving allowed…

MARTIN LEIPZIGER

A while ago I was walking around in South Bank, Melbourne and came across some artwork that really blew me away. The first drawing that stood out to me, one that I purchased, was a drawing of a whale. As you look closer, there are fish, sharks, crabs and an abundance of marine life composed into one big gentle creature. I fell in love with the piece because of what…

PADDLE BOARDING

Back in January I took a trip up to Noosa to visit some family friends and it was absolutely amazing! I arrived late in the evening and went down to the marina the next day to check out some fun water sport activities I could do. As I’ve never done stand up paddle boarding before, I thought I’d give it a try while I was there. Balancing myself on the…

IDC + IE

A year ago today, I finished my Instructors Examination in Phuket, Thailand. This was one of the most proudest achievements in my life. During my Instructors Development Course, I was taught so much. I was very lucky and had a good Course Director who guided me through with such patience to make sure I became the best Instructor I could possibly be. A year later, I am still teaching PADI…

AUSTRALIA

It has always been a dream of mine to come here to Australia – and here I am! Stepping off the plane, it felt somewhat surreal. Being here has been really challenging as I’ve never been away from Thailand before but it has been a breath of fresh air. A few bumps along the road of getting here but looking back now those hurdles seem like dust in the wind….
