12 Times Life Underwater Was Better Than Anywhere Else

Even the most intrepid explorers have yet to fully navigate Earth's underwater worlds. Almost as fascinating as space, anyone who's spent time under the surface recognises that other-worldly feeling.

There are plenty of places to visit our fishy friends – the Maldives, Belize, the Great Barrier Reef and the Caribbean will all suffice. But for now, let's take a look at why a simple dive will transport you to the most memorable of destinations.

I love the kind of travelling that is one part strategic planning and two parts spontaneous adventure. Whether I'm exploring my local city or a small town in the middle of nowhere, I'm always hoping to find something no one else has discovered.
