Scuba diving, bungy jumping & ziplining videos

We have a YouTube channel! You can subscribe to it by clicking here:  Notdunroamin YouTube videos.

We love scuba diving, and have been fortunate to have enjoyed it in many beautiful locations. We don’t have video of every dive location we’ve been to, but we try! And yes, maybe we have a little adrenaline junky in us too, as we have really enjoyed bungy jumping in Queenstown, New Zealand, and ziplining in Belize and Costa Rica. Crazy? you decide 😉

Belize is turning into one of our favourite places! We first visited in 1996, right after certifying as SCUBA divers. We’ve now been back four times (so far!) We love going to Punta Gorda, in the southernmost part of Belize, and diving with dive conservation company ReefCI on the beautiful Sapodilla Cayes. Here are some dive videos, and some land videos!

A day in Punta Gorda

This is our fifth visit to Belize,


our third trip to Punta Gorda, and this time we’ll be staying for five weeks, diving with ReefCI and then renting an apartment and just hanging with the locals.  For our first few days here we’re staying at our favourite local inn, the Coral House Inn, before we head out to Tom Owens Caye with ReefCI. This morning when we got up, we saw that the pool palapa roof was being re-thatched. Pedro and the guys were working the traditional way, it was enthralling!

Central America coming up!

You may know that Chris and I have sold everything and are permanent travellers. We are mixing in working as volunteers on various conservation projects, with travelling and staying in interesting places, and living as much as possible with the locals. We’ve just spent Christmas in England with family, after a wonderful three months in South Africa, and we’re off again in a couple of days’ time!

We’ll be taking a one-way cruise from Southampton to Fort Lauderdale, on the beautiful Cunard ship Queen Elizabeth.

We’ll be relaxing, and no doubt eating too much!

Whether retired baby-boomers or gap-year kids, it seems more and more people are getting involved in international volunteering. What is it, and how do you choose which project to get involved in? Continue reading Volunteering or Voluntourism?

Belize (again!)

In July 2013, we paused in our de-cluttering of the house ready for sale, and went back to ReefCI in Belize for a couple of weeks’ diving and reef conservation work.

Would you Belize it?!

We first went to Belize in 1996, right after certifying as SCUBA divers in Monterey Bay California. We fell in love with diving, and knew we would be going back to Belize. Well it took a while, but finally we went back in 2012.
