Underwater Adventures in the Maldives for Eco-Mermaids

•••
My first trip to the Maldives last year changed my life a little. Despite being in a relationship, I decided to go on a solomoon to one of the most romantic destinations in the world because I felt the need to just get away from things and clear my head. My only plan was to fall in love again with diving after finishing my divemaster training which had left [...]

Mermaid Aboard - Diving in Raja Ampat

•••
Scuba diving has been my passion for the past three years. It started innocently enough with seeing little Nemo for real and at first, I had no idea that it would start a love affair that would influence all my future travels. These days chances are if there is no diving at a destination I am not that interested in going and more than ever do I think Ariel w[...]

Is this Indonesia's best kept secret?

•••
I don't have a travel bucket list. The reason for that is quite simple - I can never tick places off for good as I fall in love with countries and want to return over and over again. But if I had one, Raja Ampat would have been in the top ten ever since I started diving. Image by Jackson Groves from Journey Era The archipelago lies off the west coast of P[...]

5 Highlights of Komodo National Park

•••
When I was a child, I loved the movie "The Land Before Time" and later when I was a bit more grown up "Jurassic Park" and yes, I will admit "How to Train Your Dragon." While I know that a dragon is not the same as a dinosaur (thank you for the lesson, little nephew!) both have always had an undeniable appeal to me. Adventure, a time long lost, a secluded isl[...]

Bon Bini (welcome) to Bonaire, a small Caribbean island paradise nestled off the northern coast of Venezuela. It is a world renowned diving and snorkeling destination with incredible reef conservation and environmental precautions. Above water, Bonaire is all beach town vibes and smiles. It is one of those places where ‘everyone knows everyone’ and you feel [...]

Japamala Resorts - Baby sharks in paradise

•••
A proper island getaway will require from you to put some work and effort into getting there: paddle on a raft if we believe Survivor, survive a plane crash according to Lost or take the night bus, a ferry, and a speedboat in my case. While I doze off at the ferry station, a side effect if the night bus is too punctual and arrives at 5 am, I can only hope my[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Diving

•••
Hi, my name is Annika and I am an addict. Unfortunately, the place I am staying at right now has signs all over the place saying 'Fuel your addiction'. So what can a girl do, but give into temptation and... go diving?! Ever since my last Thailand trip when I took my first breath underwater I have been completely addicted to diving and it seems whomever I [...]

7 Scuba Diving Myths busted

•••
A year ago I decided that I needed a change. I’d tried very hard to conform to a conventional lifestyle but, like a square peg in a round hole, it just didn’t quite fit. So I decided to quit my job, sell my house and move to Honduras to train to be a scuba diving instructor. After months of deliberation, I booked my flights and slowly began to tell people my[...]

A Travelette finds Nemo – Underwater love in Thailand

•••
I'm sitting at the Emirates lounge in Bangkok with a plane home to catch in an hour. The only good thing about this scenario is that I can drown my sorrow in the bottom of a bottomless champagne glass. And the fact that there is fast wi-fi so I can plan my next adventures. Other than that I am absolutely miserable due to the fact that yesterday I was swimmin[...]
