As a beginner pilot (currently working towards my PPL in Canada), advanced freediver and thoroughly worn-in traveller (6 years on the road) I have decided to share my adventures on here for anyone wishing to follow along. Whether you’ve been travelling for years or you’re an aspiring beginner, here at FlyingFreediver you’ll find tons of useful advice and inspiration to begin your own travels.
Plus there’s heaps of information on freediving and flying to be found. Each section records my progress in both areas from beginner to the present day. There’s plenty of advice, recommendations and ideas on how to improve your skills if you’re keen to delve into either (or both) of these worlds.
