It has been a life long dream of mine to obtain my diving certification. Instead of spending weeks farting around at a local pool, I decided to take my first diving vacation and obtain my certification that way. The destination: Gozo, Malta! 11 dives in five days and I obtained my PADI advance open water certification. Most of the pictures are from a day trip I took riding (40 miles) around the island. It was hard to get pictures of the dives but i managed to get a photographer on one of my dives.
