Two continents down, one to go!

- United Kingdom

September 13, 2016

The first leg of my fantasy gap year was in Central America visiting Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. This was awesome but i would have loved to stay on in Costa Rica a bit longer as it was a really unusual and interesting experience. But my flights were already booked so onwards, to Africa!
Next up was two months diving at Frontier's beach conservation camp. The diving was amazing, much more rewarding than the few fun dives i've done as a tourist elsewhere. It's a fun camp too and in an idyllic location.
On Friday i'll be flying to Fiji for the last leg of the trip. It's a bit sad to be leaving the people i've met in Madagascar but if the Fiji project is at all similar then it'll be worth it!
