Meet Max and Zara, two sweet, sweet siblings. 😍 .
Because you're probably starting to know me and because you can see the smile in my dace, you already know this was another amazing day in "the office"! .
This time, mom and dad didn't went diving but they made us company all day in our really cool boat.
I feel very lucky because I always keep memories of stories with my divers and even though I had a great day with the entire family, this time, an 11 year old girl got the spot! 💙
I hope you two get your OW certification very soon! 🙌
One of the things that makes my job feel so special is the relationships that sometimes we are fortunate enough to built.
My only message to this fantastic lady @jetkuiken is: I hope I gave you a new amazing pink elefant! ❤🐘 .
Hope to see you all again!
I've been having the privilege to work surrounded by young people and, in some cases, along with them, also the parents. 😃
Taking Lola and her dad @dirkjannat was one of those events. I had the double pleasure of conducting Lola's DSD (Discovery Scuba Diving program) and also seeing her dad getting back in the water which was a pretty good idea because this amazing mermaid will for sure become his new buddy really soon! 🙌
Have to say that Lola flashed me back to my own DSD... besides the bright eyes when we were underwater, that look, when we came back to the boat, said it all: she had conquered a new amazing world! 💙💙💙 .
All my best wishes to this fantastic team! Hope to see you again!
@eliannek and Anat joined me for a great day full of amazing discoveries .
Congratulations for your first underwater breaths and thank you for joining me! 💙
I will not forget our deal! 😉
P.S. - We got photobombed by the evil crazy manager!!! 😂😂 .

Nice hot weather but chilly North Atlantic water... from 36ºC outside to 16ºC in water! Layers and layers of neoprene but warm hearted with this lovely team!
Very proud of my divers Hanna and Kevin! We had some hard moments... but with will and dedication, we did it! 😍
Hope to see you again!! .

@dani_wormald and I share two big passions: traveling and diving! 😍
During her amazing journey, she did a pit stop in Koh Tao to get her Advanced Open Water certification. And she was great!!! .
It was fun, girl!! Thanks and hope to see you again... underwater or exploring the world! 😉

You, Will, are for sure one of my precious diamonds! 💎 Better yet, you are one of my little monsters!! 😍
From fin fights to underwater hugs, we had it all! Just easy days in "the office" with sooo much fun! 😄
I'm so proud to be your instructor and I hope I have the chance to certify you on your next levels of certification .
You're great and I wish you all the best!

My friends @jorge.silva.1969 and Filipa came all the way from Angola, stopping in Portugal and then straight to Thailand for a visit!! Thank you soooo much for your visit! Loved having you here!! ❤💕 They are also my newest certified Scuba diver students. 😃 CONGRATULATIONS for your certifications!! 🙌 We were so focused in our course we didn't even took a single picture throughout the course! 😝 .

Just a few days ago, this fantastic lady @gracareindl accomplished one more great achievement in her life. 💪 🍾 I want to praise that and celebrate it with the memory of this other achievement in which I had the pleasure of being part of. She was very nervous to get in the water, holded my hand tight and ended the dive with a massive smile. 😊 I hope you're still enjoying those beautiful timorese dives! 💦
Besides all this, she's lovely, has an amazing sense of humor, a beautiful smile and she's a great cook!! 😋
Hope our paths may cross again, my dear! ❤ .

Now this is the story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down! 😎 .
Definitely can't rap more than this so briefly..
A few years ago someone asked me what I would like to do... The first and only thing that invaded my mind was: bikini and flip-flops all day long! .
He said: "That's not a plan..." .
I asked: "Why not?.." .
Now, from dawn to dinner time this is how I'll look like! 😃 .
But hey! This is not me on a permanent vacation. I work and I study hard every day. But I LOVE MY JOB and every day it's a pleasure! 💙 .

💙💚💛 When it all started... 🐟🌞🐠🌴🦀🐬🌈🐡🌄🐙🌊🏖🐋🐠☀🐚🐢🌅🐳 .
Family vacation in Cape Verde.
A year after, I quit my job, left a build-up career, stability, family, home and everything else behind and started traveling the world and became a Scuba Instructor. Up to this day, I still believe it was the best non-planed plan I could have ever chosen.
P.S. - So everyone believes... yes, scuba instructors also start with Discovery Scuba Dives (DSD). We were not born knowing how to dive. 😉

La simple palabra nos habla de aventuras, nos habla de lugares paradisíacos y aguas prístinas, de atardeceres, de alegrías y tristezas… de mares y tesoros.
Un buzo es por naturaleza un ser especial, dotado de un espíritu de aventura, Es un ser afable que tiene la dureza de un mar tempestuoso y la ternura de un niño.
Es un ser que vive en un mundo diferente al que conocen el resto de los mortales... el buzo vive en su mundo acuático... Vive y sueña con el buceo, aún sin estar en el agua. Tienen la capacidad de bucear entre delfines y cardúmenes con sólo pensarlo.
Generalmente en tierra tiene la habilidad de los pulpos y se camufla según su entorno; pueden parecer grandes ejecutivos, mercaderes, pilotos, chóferes de autobuses trabajadores industriales, en fin adoptan cualquier apariencia que los haga ver como gente normal…hasta que el agua toca su piel. Entonces se transforman en seres acuáticos que comparten un mismo ideal, el GRAN AZUL.
Se les ve deambulando por las playas, en las discotecas, en los bares, acampando, limpiando equipos, en hamacas, bajo las sombras de los árboles o simplemente tirados al sol pero, en todos los casos los delata una sonrisa de satisfacción en sus rostros.
Los buzos tienen todo igual que los humanos... Menos el corazón, este es mas grande pues solo así pueden caber tantos amigos en él.
El buzo tiene la facultad de robar la atención de quienes lo rodean. Tiene un toque de rudeza sobre sus hombros y y la blandura de la esponjas en su alma, tiene la cordura de un loco y la sinceridad del mentiroso, es tan predecible como los terremotos y sabe a ciencia cierta como programar su vida... Por las próximas dos horas.
Al buzo le basta un instante para que lo conozcan y toda una vida no es suficiente para olvidarlo.
