Scuba Diving: Rules Now Allowing Kids to Dive In

Let’s face it; there are some of us out there who could be considered pretty irresponsible, even as adults. So, with this attitude, one might worry that giving every adult the OK to learn to scuba dive is concerning. Hopefully those who take the plunge are mature enough to realize that scuba diving can be hazardous business if you don’t know what you’re doing. Recently, the minimum age for a diver has been dropped. At first, it’s an alarming fact, but the reasoning behind it gives it a little more logic.

When Seven Just Isn’t Enough

OK class, I would like to start today’s lesson with a question: which of you is considered the eighth wonder of the world? Alright, alright, quiet everyone settle down. Not all at once.

That’s right Grand Canyon, you can put your hand down. Giant’s Causeway, you too. You know what, just get out. You reek of Guinness.

Alright, now that that is settled, let’s narrow it down some more. If you’re a wonder from Europe, put your hand down. Hagia Sophia, stop playing the two continents card, we’re sick of it. You’re not special, put your hand down. I don’t care if you live in America, Statue of Liberty, we all know that under that toga you’re French birthright is growing out of your follicles, particularly in the armpit area. Put your hand down and get a razor for goodness’ sake.

A Couple Characteristics of Cruises

When you decide to take a cruise, there are a number of things to look forward to. We’ve decided to highlight a couple.

Shore Excursions on your Cruise
Part of the excitement of travelling by sea is seeing a foreign port. Somehow, approaching an exotic location at a leisurely pace and seeing a new coastline unfold from sea level is, in my opinion, much more satisfying than landing in an airplane. I’ve found airports have a certain sameness about them.
