It´s worth it

Maybe it´s not Caribbean or Australia, but as experienced divers we had to look under water here and there was still something new to discover.

Lohnt sich

Ist vielleicht nicht Karibik oder Australien, aber als erfahrene Taucher mussten wir natürlich auch hier mal unter Wasser vorbei schauen und es gab doch einiges Neues zu entdecken.
