It's gonna be hard to write anything about a trip that is too breathtaking to describe. I have to say firstly that Blue O2 and, more importantly, the Crew of M/Y Red Sea Adventurer were amazing. They really helped to make the whole experience one to remember. On top of that, all the boat's guests where a delight too.
It has been a mind-blowing 3 months. Since October, I have succesfully become a qualified PADi Scuba Instructor, completed my first 5 Certs, and an EFR course. All this topped off with an amazing trip to the Red Sea (more of this in another post) and an amazing Christmas with friends. The whole of 2014 has been an amazing Journey working with Cornish Diving School, Cornwall Divers and Steve Prior to achieve an amazing dream to become a SCUBA instructor.

I have had the fortune to work on a number of Agile projects with a number of different clients and employees. I have also had the opportunity to hear some "interesting" interpretations of what Agile is. Some of these have brought a smile to my face. Others - not so much.
