Man, where does the time go?
When I last logged in to blog, it was early August. Summer was in full swing here in Vancouver, and with it, lots of warm and wonderful distractions.
August slammed into September, and then I was off on a much anticipated dive adventure, this time to lovely Wakatobi Resort, in Indonesia, with many of the usual suspects (ie our regular dive buddies). I am still processing the images I captured there, and hope to start sharing them here soon.
Then it was October, and off I went again, on my semi-annual Berlin beer bender ;^) Seriously, Mr G has some business in Germany, and I am lucky enough to be invited to tag along (I suspect mostly to warm his bed ;^) in the Fall and in the Spring, when the board comes to town and spouses are welcome to accompany them. It is a no-brainer for me to go, as Mr G travels a lot for work and earns a nice big stash of frequent flyer points, which allows me to go to Berlin on the cheap, and also helps get us to places like Asia to dive with some regularity.
I really have grown to love Berlin, and I should make more of an effort to write about this fascinating city, but somehow, between the fugue of jetlag and some very late nights out imbibing aforementioned (and fantastic) German beers, I don’t often get around to it. On my last trip there, in Spring of this year, I was very moved by my visit to the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, and felt compelled to share it. On this recent trip, not so much on the museums nor the writing. My bad.
And speaking of writing, I have a new gig at Scubadiving Magazine – contributing a once a month photo essay for their online magazine and e.news. I am totally thrilled to have been offered this wonderful opportunity, and I look forward to sharing my stuff with a wider audience.
Here is a link to the inaugural piece – all about the gorgeous soft coral gardens of Fiji.
