Travel – On Your Terms   by Betty and Dan Orr
Its time to think about all the wonderful places to travel to that may be on your bucket list. 

But you may be hesitating to make a choice to travel based on news headlines. Don’t fall victim.

We find that taking charge of issues you can control may help minimize the stress of worrying over events that you can’t. So get yourself organized so that you can get out there and enjoy the world.

TIPS ON TAKING CONTROL
 
Scuba Diver Tag Keeps Emergency Info With You

The ScubaDiverTag will ensure you have your critical information with you at all times. We have noticed many dive operations do not collect your DAN or emergency contact information. The ScubaDiverTag has all those details and more. Once attached to your BCD, you will never go diving without it!
We also give you the opportunity to show everyone how many dives you’ve completed. Whether its 20 dives or 200 dives or 2000 dives, there’s no reason to keep it a secret.

If you're heading to the airport the recommended three hours before your flight this summer, you might as well plan to enjoy your extra time there, right?
Delays, cancellations, diversions, and misconnects are never within our control, but having a place to make the most of your time in the airport is.

Airport lounges these days are more than a place to find comfortable chair, and, contrary to popular belief, are not just reserved for first and business class. In fact, hundreds of lounges around the world are actually available for a reasonable one-time fee. Relax, grab a drink, be productive at a work station, freshen up with a shower and even dine at a restaurant with a great view (well, of the tarmac).  

The trick is to know which ones are available to you during your itinerary, and that's where LOUNGEBUDDY APP comes in.

Using a DIVE TRAVEL SPECIALIST Makes Sense

Even for experienced dive travelers, planning and booking complicated dive trips online can prove daunting.  Deciding which destinations and operators best fit you, the best season to travel to a destination, getting there with smooth connections, finding hidden charges and that's just the start.  And then there is your time to put together all the separate and often non-refundable pieces. Or . . . you can use a professional to help.
