Invasion AKR The Aftermath

After a fabulous week of diving with Anthoney’s Key Resort in Roatan, Honduras, I learned a few things for future dive vacations.

  • Don’t put OPV in separate bags from where they go into.
  • Always check your camera before/after a dive for leaks
  • Always have charged batteries/empty cards
  • A small bottle of bug spray lasts about a week
  • No Seeums leave nasty marks that turn straight into scabs and last a loooooong time
  • Cram more into carryon and try to get everything into 1 checked bag
  • Don’t have milk in a third world country
  • Don’t fret about missing bags, in the end it doesn’t matter or greatly affect your total vacation (unless you’re backpacking or country hopping)

I spent 21:20 underwater blowing bubbles. Not a horrible way to spend 7 days (+2 days travelling) with 24 dives (3 night dives)

And now onto something completely relatedly different.
