My Bedouin Adventure: A Camel Diving Safari in Egypt thumbnail

I’m a proud PADI AmbassaDiver + this post is brought to you by PADI. After three exotic weeks exploring Egypt (and alliterating, apparently), it was time for one final adventure: a camel diving safari to the remote Bedouin settlement of Ras Abu Galum. I know what you’re thinking. How the heck do you get a dive mask on…

See the Red Sea: A Review of the King Snefro Liveaboard and PADI Travel thumbnail

It’s no secret I had a magical time underwater in Sharm El Sheikh. But what about onboard the boat? Liveaboard reviews can be tough to find, and I feel like it’s the kind of thing you really want an honest personal assessment of — considering there’s no escape once you’re onboard!

And so I became smitten with the bohemian, Bedouin beach town of Dahab…

But never has it been more important than when boarding a liveaboard dive boat! Tight quarters in the cabins, a specialized sport involved, no access to stores to replace anything you…

A Red Hot Red Sea Adventure: Four Days on an Egyptian Liveaboard thumbnail

Thank you all so much for your patience as I’ve taken a hiatus from blogging to focus on supporting my family through my mother’s terminal cancer diagnosis. Time feels more precious than ever but I have been missing writing and the connection it makes me feel to my mom, also a writer by trade — and…

The Sinai Adventures Begin in Sharm El Sheikh thumbnail

For many, the greatest draw to Egypt is the pyramids and the many other temples and ruins that stand as testament to one of the most fascinating civilizations of all time. For some, another world beckons — the one found under the surface of the Red Sea. For scuba divers, the Red Sea is one of…
