Day 3 – Unexpected end.

We are finally here, and the most important piece of equipment onboard, the compressor to fill our scuba tanks, breaks down. It is unfortunate, and we will certainly be more prepared next time. But there are still some things we can do just snorkelling.

Large schools of fish were a common sight.

  1. Fairly insightful publish. Never thought that it was this simple after all. I had spent a very good deal of my time looking for someone to explain this topic clearly and you’re the only 1 that ever did that. Kudos to you! Keep it up

  4. Howdy! I know this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established webvsite such as
    yours take a massive amount work? I am brand new to
    running a blog however I do write in my diary everyday.

    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience
    and feelingss online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Thankyou!
