Life is in the detail

Make sure you experience a night dive at Cannibal Rock in the Komodo archipelago - this is when all the tiny crustaceans come out to play

Sea Turtle

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Witness turtle hatchlings waddle their way into the ocean
  • Experience the luxury of a liveaboard so that I can head to those hard to reach sites and have the site to myself
  • To be within 20m of a trigger fish without panicking
  • Book an around the world ticket visiting as many places as I can - Nepal, Myanmar, Vietnam and the Philippines (for the incredible diving) are top of the list!
Mountains, Toubkal

Best Moments

  • Having being told I'm the slowest walker in the history of Toubkal ascents, finally making it to the top!
  • Sitting at the bottom of the ocean in the Komodo Islands for nearly an hour watching a pair of manta rays dance around us
  • Skydiving in Fiji - the adrenaline when the plane doors open, then the calmness once the parachute is open and feeling like you are floating
Marrakesh, Morocco

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Trying to keep calm when the Souk rage kicks in in Marrakesh
  • Leaving some beautiful places and saying bye to people that I've met along the way

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Falling asleep on a local bus in Sumatra and waking up to find an Indonesian man running his long fingernails through my hair

Coral Wall, Fiji

Paradise found in Fiji

My first visit to Fiji was in 2007, and as a backpacker I knew it would be a place I had to come back to. So I vowed that I would return to its beautiful beaches and dreamy waters, and this time I would do Fiji the way it should be done; luxurious hotels and incredible diving. So that is…

Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Amy's Life of Dive

My diving journey started on my gap year around Thailand, Australia and Fiji where I completed my PADI Open Water and Advanced on Koh Tao. I remember my first experience well, from the brief panic that I was breathing underwater to the realisation that there was a whole new world to…
