Quite a good year diving, logging 80 dives overall and although most were in UAE (both coasts) and 25% of my dives at one site (Dibba Rock), I also returned to Lembeh Straits with my daughter (who logged her 100th dive on that trip), and also some dives in Saudi Red Sea, Oman (Damaniyat Islands) as well as some cooler diving just north of Barcelona (Costa Brava).

Added another housing for my Nikon D7100 (Sea&Sea), and photographed some new critters such as the Flamboyant Cuttlefish as well as several new species of nudibranch that I had never seen before

I also completed yet another course (Advanced Recreational Trimix), and that has opened up some new doors, new dive sites and new operations that I had never dived with before (Coastal Technical Divers, Blue Planet, ProDive and Dive Centre). Not really planning to do another one in 2015.

I also bought my first drysuit (DUI 30/30), although yet to use it properly.

Looking forward to 2015, well who knows what that will hold for me but I am planning to return again to Sulawesi as well as dive in the UK with my buddy Dimitris, who left UAE last June and has been logging some drysuit dives already in anticipation of some Scottish sea loch diving.

Icing on the cake is my daughter Yanni starting a new job as Marine Project Coordinator with EMEG in Dubai
