I've always enjoyed traveling to tropical destinations. Becoming a diver seemed like a good excuse to go on more vacations. My favorite place to dive so far is probably Tubbataha in the Philippines, but I have a LONG list of places I haven't been to yet.
I became a Dive Master because I thought it would be a good way to improve my skills and continue to dive when I'm not on a trip. I'm currently taking the Assistant Instructor class for the same reasons.
