Diving with Sea Lions in Puerto Madryn, Argentina

This is one of the coolest experiences that I have ever had.   Patagonia is one of the must things to do in Argentina and Puerto Madryn is a mecca for any animal lover.  I’ve never scuba dived in my life and these guys were just kind enough to let me go full fledged scuba with about 5 minutes worth of training.

Ten Things To Do in Vancouver

Vancouver is one of my favourite holiday destinations. The immense harbour, the towering trees of Stanley Park and the breathtaking mountains just a short drive away form a spectacular backdrop for Vancouver’s gleaming skyscrapers.
