Harry Potter’s soundtrack is the right music for a video filmed in a fairy-dive.
This is the only possible way to describe the aquatic life of Lembeh, a small island of Indonesia.
It is said that a truly passionate diver is the one whose diving equipment is more expensive than his car. So very true! Equally true is the fact that the best “value for money” trip for the passionate diver is the liveaboard diving safari.
Liveaboard literally means “I live on a boat.”
For the diving traveler it means “I plan to dive all day and in between dives I shall dive a little more!”
I always wanted to be an astronaut.
It could not be any simpler than that.
I studied physics to understand nature and become an astronaut.
I fell in love with scuba diving because it gave me the experience of weightlessness without being in outer space. I was, at last, able to hover freely in three-dimensional space.
Since my early days in the industry, I tried to understand what fueled my obsession with diving and traveling.
In the beginning -I am now certain- it was pure ego. Diving gave me the opportunity to distinguish myself, to be different.
But as I carried on diving, I realized that I was fulfilling a far more profound need.
The more I dive, the more clear I see that I am part of a greater system that is interconnected and functions as a whole. The more I travel, the more conscious of this reality of oneness I become.
Astronauts experience this “overview effect” when they look back on Earth from orbit.
I travel and dive to experience the same “overview effect”, the gentle embrace of Mother Sea.
Join me in this travel quest; our blue planet is full of extraordinary discoveries!
