During some of our recent trips we have managed to save considerable money by flying with Air Asia as our regional airline within Asia.

Video of a Subic bay dive

What do you think pretty awesome isn’t it?

Honestly this video is not a one off, the diving here is this good on a regular basis.

Located in North Eastern Queensland (that’s in Australia for those that don’t know), the “Daintree Rain Forest” is the largest wooded area in all of Australia. Being the largest of anything in Australia is quite a feat in itself. The whole country is huge and is filled with huge examples of everything, just check out their spiders….actually don’t they’re pretty scary and dangerous.
