Gone Diving

As this post gets published I’m on my way to the airport, to go on a 7-day diving holiday in Egypt.

Under normal conditions about 20 of my buddies from my diving club Bubbledivers would join, but this year is different. Because we were not certain if and when we could depart, only 4 of us responded to the late call. As Egypt is rather close by, very affordable, and has a lot to offer I didn’t hesitate to join.

Later today we’ll land in Hurghada, and immediately hop on our boat which will be our home for the next few days — yes, we’re doing a “liveaboard”. From there we’ll go northbound towards the Suez Gulf. On our way we’ll dive the wrecks at Abu Nuhas, be amazed by the beauty of Ras Mohammed, the wonderful Thistlegorm wreck, etc.

It’ll be my fourth diving-holiday in Egypt and I’m not bored with it at all … watching the beautiful underwater life and visiting the wrecks is something that brings me joy and inner peace.

To give you an idea of what it’s all about, here’s a video from my last visit in 2018, where we did about the same route as we’ll do now:
