Unfamiliar is Scary

This I feel is much of the reason why people fear sharks. This is why Kathryn and I set up Friends for Sharks and why we took the route we did – educating people on what sharks are really like, to enable people to gain some familiarity with these incredible animals. Are they dangerous? Well […]

World Tour for Sharks – The End!

So, this is it. We made it to the finish line and our World Tour for Sharks is officially over.

Complete. Done.

How is it possible that we even made it to this point? Mostly in one piece I would like to add; with just two hospital visits, two broken laptops, two broken cameras, four back injury […]

Diving the Poor Knights

Our 66th Friends for Sharks event was at Dive! Tutukaka. They very generously offered to give us a day diving at New Zealand’s premier diving destination, the Poor Knights. This small cluster of islands sits approximately 15 miles (24 km) North East of Tutukaka in New Zealand’s Northland. The team at Dive! is extremely friendly, […]

Hello from the top of New Zealand!

I had been really looking forward to visiting Northland after a cold winter travelling throughout New Zealand and it was as beautiful, warm and scenic as we had both hoped for. Our first stop was Tutukaka for a dive centre lecture at Dive Tutukaka. The event went well despite a technical hitch at the start […]

Hold It!

Hold it…your breath that is.

Today I would like to share our favourite travelling game, The Breath Hold game. It is quite straightforward – you hold you breath whilst crossing any bridge. Simple and yet strangely addictive when you drive as many roads as we do.

We were introduced to this game by one of the employess […]
