    Hi,

    I'm Mathieu, French, living in India for many years. In New Delhi to be precise... i.e really far from any clean water body, which sucks.

    I've discovered diving pretty late, just got my Open Water certification, but for my wife and I, it really blew our world and we're decided to dive as often as possible.

    But we're beginners here so... don't be too harsh :)

    Cheers,

    Mathieu

    Welcome. When I was living in India, I dove Goa....about as good as it gets unless you fly further east.

    Thanks for the warm welcome and for the tips! I'm indeed totally in love with diving. It was sort of a life changing experience for me.

    @flyboy08 good to know, thanks. I went to Goa years ago and didn't know there were nice dive sites there.

    @htatton : you're so right! Thanks for sharing your experience. I want to be you when I grow up! :wink:

    Thanks @ram04769, we only have 9 dives logged but enjoyed every second.

    And yes... slowly learning to take my time and enjoy. Without hyperventilating. Still a work in progress though :)

    Thanks for the welcome!
