Palau Dive Trip 2007
Crystal inspired me to finish my slide show. You can check out more amazing underwater pictures of Palau on her blog here
. My trip to Palau was everything I expected and more! We spent four nights and five days on Palau. Most of the time we were diving and exploring under water so we didn't get a chance to explore the island as much. When I come back I want to spend a couple of days just checking out the waterfalls and sights in Palau.
The "show" underwater is indescribable. There is so much going on that I didn't know what to focus on. There were countless sharks, turtles on every corner, and plenty of fish everywhere! Not to mention the colorful soft coral and giant clams. It was amazing! This trip was the first time I took my own underwater pictures. Snapping pictures underwater is alot harder than I thought. I had a hard time because the current was so strong and the fish were really fast. Now I have a new found respect for underwater photographers. I guess I just need more practice.
I think the best thing about traveling and scuba diving is the people that you meet along the way. We dived with people who came from South Africa, England, and Germany. All of them had some great diving experiences to share with us. I love to hear about their life stories and where they have come from. It really is fascinating how everyone has their own story. I also have to say that if you ever dive in Palau . . . ask for our divemaster, Dexter. Dexter did such a great job planning our daily dives. We dove three days with three dives each day. He really made sure we got the best out of each dive and I felt really safe with him around.
My new found love is traveling and scuba diving so expect to see more pictures of my adventures underwater. God is bringing me to new places everyday and I'm just so thankful for the life He has blessed me with.
