Galápagos Islands adds Protection for Marine Sanctuary. The Galápagos Islands has long been a favorite destination for scuba divers. The liveaboard trip to the far north of the island chain to the remote islands of Darwin and Wolf is the trip for shark lovers. These islands have the highest biomass of sharks in the world.

Why I love Diving Subic Bay Philippines I have been a scuba diver for about 18 years and for around 11 of those years, I have been living in Olongapo on the shores of Subic Bay Philippines.

It is however, good enough to explore the wrecks. The natural reefs are there but not heavily covered in coral. The biggest draw fo...

Coming soon to an overhead bin near you..... theoretically... IATA (the International Air Transport Association) just launched a new initiative to streamline the accommodation of carry-on bags on aircraft. Differing carry-on bag sizes and airline policies have made boarding a tedious process, especially since carriers began charging for the first checked bag in 2008. IATA has been working with airline members of IATA and aircraft manufacturers to determine an optimum size guideline. The particip...
