Max's Maldives Adventure Day One

Max's Maldives Adventure Day One

I left boston at 9:30 on Saturday night and got here at 9am Maldivian time, which amounted to something like 27 hours of travel time. This was by far the longest journey that I have ever made but Qatar airlines made it as comfortable as possible (the constant supply of gin & tonics and a good movie selection certainly helped). It was only 2 flights with a long layover in Qatar but it didn’t feel nearly as bad as it sounds. I am not very good at sleeping on planes though so I was pretty wiped afterwards. If you are...

My First Boat Dive

My First Boat Dive

In August I was given the opportunity to go to Los Angeles for a couple of weeks. As a newly certified open water diver I was excited to get the opportunity to dive in a new ocean. I live in Massachusetts and had only dove locally. I also had only done shore dives. While my open water certification class gave me the skills to dive off a boat, I hadn’t gone on any trips yet.
