Magical Dive Sites

The Compulsive Traveler series aired on CBS Television on Sundays afternoon and scored #1 in the ratings for the time period faring higher than comparable programs on ABC, NBC and Fox

In Magical Dive Sites, The Compulsive Traveler is pulled in a whole new direction: down, down, down. Diving is now his new passion and he cavorts in three magical dive destinations in the Caribbean. There are many reasons why they call the Cayman Islands a divers dream: this is an entire nation dedicated to both banking and diving! Everything there is absolute: the visibility, the abundance of sea life and the drama of its underwater walls.
At least 2 plane rides are necessary to find truly virgin reefs. The remote St Vincent and the Grenadines is such a place and home to a unique type of diving called “muck diving” which reveals the most amazing sea critters. Several of them have not yet been classified! Hurry before they get into every biology book.
The unspoiled Tobago, because of its Atlantic currents meeting the Caribbean is known for the best and fastest drift diving. Flying underwater is a whole different kind of sport here. Sort of like skydiving but sideways. Strange and terrific to be tumbling through the water while fish life stares motionless.

Where do I start? -The history of the place is unbelievable...one night I stayed in a 12th century Refugio. The way even predates Christianity as it was used by the Celts following the Milky Way. -The people, I met people from all round the world, all doing the Camino for their own personal reason. The comradeship and friendships you make on the way are fantastic What did I get out of it? I took my video camera and have shot a doco. I lugged 18 kg of gear for nearly 800 km over 34 days...I lost 8 kilos Was it a spiritual experience? Yes, I started from square one with my belief system. I see the Camino as a purification process, a purification of body and of mind. Some say there are 3 stages, the physical, the mental or emotional and the spiritual. Physical - go thru pain, blisters etc, ends in a euphoric feeling similar to a runners high. Mental or emotional - when you hit the flat lands of the meseta between Burgos and Leon you've been walking for about 2 weeks and it is no longer fun, the distances between towns can be as much as 18 kms, Anything that doesn't allow you to be 'in the moment' acts as a distraction, e.g. looking at your watch, wanting a coffee in the next town. All the problem areas of your life well up in you and you are tested, many return to old addictions, for me cigarettes. This staged ends with a feeling of being 'in the moment' and appreciating the nature around you, meditating. Spiritual - The Camino becomes a walking meditation, you feel in tune with nature and I myself felt protected (by god) You learn to 'go with the flow' and not so much impose your own will on the happenings of the day. you start to realize a lot of your worries are your own making. I also had a miracle happen which informed me there is a god, my whole belief system has changed....I no longer believe in the term sin, but I do believe we make mistakes, have the free will to make mistakes and that even thinking a negative thought takes us away from our relationship with our creator. less
