Diving the World

So far I did scuba diving in 40 countries all over the world. Some of them just in Europe, others as far away as Papua New Guinea,the Galapagos Islands or Rapa Nui.

But it does not matter how far away it is. It's all about what you are going to see. Some of this spots have been about large fish, others about the macro stuff.
Sometimes it has even been the same spot twice, but there is always something new to discover.

While I have done the cold lakes in Austria in the first years, mostly because of budget restrictions, I prefer the warmer water while getting older.
