    Opening Of Indonesia pushed to end of 2020?

    Citizens at least have the legal right of return to NZ. As a permanent resident under the Trans-Tasman agreement, I do not automagically qualify for this. Getting a flight is difficult though. Strictly speaking, I don’t think citizens have to ask NZ govt permission to depart/return, but the...

    Opening Of Indonesia pushed to end of 2020?

    So I am an Australian living in NZ. As a non-citizen on a special category visa I have to apply for permission to leave NZ, and also have to apply for permission to return. It is unlikely I would be granted permission to depart NZ for anything but a family emergency or a permanent move back to...

    New Zealand

    Maybe I've just been lucky with Poor Knights, but the two trips I've done with Dive Tutukaka have been in mid-summer tourist season, and there's only been 6-7 passengers on board one of their bigger boats with 2 guides between us. Hardly crammed and overcrowded. Also based in Wellington, but...

    Thanks for the info! I've already been to Anilao half a dozen times though :) After a change of scenery. Even been to PG before, but it was a while ago and I stayed in town with a non-diving partner, not out near where El Galleon is. Wasn't a fan of PG itself, and haven't been back for that...

    Trip Report Trip Report-Philippines-Puerto Galera-El Galleon/Asia Divers-April 1-14, 2019

    Hi @Trailboss123 I'm *this* close to booking a trip to PG with El Galleon/Asia Divers. Just had a question regarding the organisation of the diving. Your posts indicate that you did a variety of diving, but if I was specifically planning on going just for the muck diving, can you simply...

    Is there any good diving on the west side-Nadi?

    You can do day trips out of Nadi to do the shark dive at Beqa. Bit of a long day (2.5 hour drive each way), but doable :)

    Garuda Airlines has banned this MacBook Pro

    I travelled NZ-Sydney-Bali return and NZ-Perth return in the last month and got questioned by aviation security in both directions while carrying a 2013 13" Macbook Air.

    Garuda Airlines has banned this MacBook Pro

    Airlines in Australia have too. Restrictions have been in place for almost a month. Is this not happening in the US? Airline staff suck at differentiating between the "problematic" ones and the "safe" ones. Try and avoid travelling with it if possible, it's causing headaches for a lot of...

    TDAP 10 year booster overdue

    Toughen up princess :) Edit: If you were travelling somewhere less remote I may think differently, but if you did happen to meet a rusty fish hook or something while diving in remote Indonesia...I'd want the shots. Why risk it?
