Diving in Aqaba, Jordan Diving in Aqaba, Jordan
Juha - 3/16/2016 5:42 AM
I posted this text originally in 2012, so it is an older post. This was very first blog post I ever wrote! While it is a few years old, the facts still remain the same, and I suppose recent events in the Middle East make Jordan perhaps an even more exotic dive destination than it was a few years ago. I have altered the text slightly for this re-post. So here goes: I visited Jordan with my family last November. What an incredibly beautiful country, what friendly people! Jordan was really worth th...

scubadivingnomad - 2/06/2016 12:03 PM
A Concrete ship of the same class as YON-146 The Concrete Ship Wreck of Subic Bay YON-146World War II saw many interesting ship building activities, Concrete Ship building being one of them. Since the large ship yards were turning out capital ships, the corn field ship yards created the LST. These ships yards got that nick name because many of them had been farms before the war. Far inland, they used the nations waterways to get the ships to the coast. All this ship building put a strain on the ...
Diving the Way Captain Nemo Used to do It Diving the Way Captain Nemo Used to do It
Juha - 1/27/2016 6:21 PM
Diving is a great sport, no question about it. A way to exercise as well as relax. Sometimes though, the sport of it can get a bit too… sporty. Exhausting. Sometimes you might want the beauty and the relaxation of underwater without of the carrying of gear, getting the wet suit on and then off again, ear squeeze. All the hassle that comes with this great activity of diving that we all love so much. Without even getting your hair wet. Or maybe I’m just getting old. On Lanzarote, one of the Canary...
Hey it is 2016 Hey it is 2016
scubadivingnomad - 1/13/2016 12:17 PM
Aqwary Dive UpdateWOW, can you believe that 4% of 2016 is gone already? Like everyone, I made New Year’s Resolutions, well no mine are goals. A few are writing related.

Only a few articles that I wrote are with my byline. So in 2016, I will “hire” myself to write. I will add me into my work schedule. A couple are ...
