just started diving a few years ago, after having snorkelled a
lot. Due to the temperature and visibility around Denmark, I
have never been diving in my home country.
In the beginning,
diving was just part of the adventure while travelling, but some
the recent tours have been mainly about diving.
My main goal is to see and document the magnificent
and breathtaking nature - while we still have it. It is my belief that people
are more likely to preserve and appreciate plants and animals, if they
have seen and heard of them. If I can contribute in any way, I see this as a
goal in it self.

After a few dives, especially in locations with shore diving, I prefers
to go by our selves. Many guides tend to be so eager to show morays and
sharks, that they completely forget about all the small, but even more interesting
creatures of the reef. And some just like to go deep and fast,
making the dive as short as possible.
