Diving in Jordan, 2015

Red Sea for many Europeans is traditionally associated with diving. And, despite the fact that the most popular «starting dive-points» are Egyptian resorts, at the same time access to the Red Sea, except for Egypt, have a few other countries. For example Jordan is one of them.


Elbrus Climbing


The thought of climbing the highest mountain of Europe anyway flashed more than once after we in February, 2013 climb to Kilimanjaro. It is also clear — Elbrus is included into those desired 7 Tops — 7 very best high points of Seven Parts of the world, being the highest point of Europe. And having risen once by such height and having looked at the world from height of several thousand meters, inevitably there is an impudent thought not to be satisfied with what has already been achieved and to set new goals. Doubts were dispelled by the sale of already nonexistent airline Transaero offering flight from SPb to Mineralnye Vody for ridiculous 5300 rubles (at a present course: $90 for flight there and back). It was solved — we buy tickets and start preparations. The company was selected unexpectedly. It was taken the whole 7 people interested to join this adventure. Further there were 2 months of preparations, search of necessary equipment and search of the guide for ours on the Internet. And here all issues were resolved and there came a day of a departure. So, on September 10 we arrived into the North Caucasus.

Yearly diving in the Red Sea, 2013

Bluespotted Stingray, Red Sea

Our planned trip to the Red sea didn’t promise to be remarkable in any way. These days working people (thanks to Cheaptrip) can afford going to Egypt just about the weekend. :smile: But we fail to come up to this level, but once a year between long-distance travel we certainly decide to make this kind of a sally in order to get rid of a diver’s addiction to the azure deep, palms and the sun.
