Apparently the Great Barrier Reef isn't all that, according to a chap at my club. He's got around 2,000 open water dives under his belt (not bad for someone who isn't a full time instructor!) and has dived pretty much everywhere in the world, including the Galapogos Islands
Lucky sod! Would love to dive the galapagos islands! One day....
Yep, I did the NAUI training in Africa a couple of years ago - bit more intensive than PADI, with more classroom training, but had some great instructors and plenty of emphasis on diving safety!
Diving is amazing... I have always liked the idea of things like yoga and meditation, but never had the skill or patience to do them properly - my first dive was my first moment of real meditation and I was hooked from that moment on.
/wants to go somewhere hot to dive and not be stuck behind a desk and in front of a computer
