Seychelles

The most influential trip I ever took was moving to the Seychelles for six months to work as a  Divemaster Intern and study the coral reef/ invertebrates of Baie Ternay.  With the dramatic backdrop of granite cliffs & the thriving Indian Ocean Coral Reefs I learned so much about myself & forged life long relationships with people from all around the world.

Travel. Find your limits & break them in half.
