And no, I’m not going to the Southern Hemisphere. I’m going to Alaska!! My first time on that state, and not normal Alaska… but to Prudhoe Bay, one of the most Northern tips of the country.

Not only different, but somehow on the other side… Let’s get some context first… On 2017, I was a brand new GUE cave 1 diver, still working on my full time job in New Zealand, and only having 1 day to see […]Read More Alviela 2018 – Not New But Completely New
