indahs: dive, travel & photography

Special thanks to Andre, Boris and Chuck for allowing me to use their amazing photos in this post. Please visit their links to see more of their beautiful photography works!

My diving certifications include a specialty of Manta Ray Diver – thanks to Scuba Schools International (SSI) and Orca Dive Center in Flores (Indonesia) for this interesting and eye opening course.

Do you think your heart is dead? Kalbinin öldüğünü mü düşünüyorsun ? by Yasmin Mogahed

#AceFriendsNews – Really nice post and love the presentation.



Do you think your heart is dead?
