I got a diving mask as a 5 year birthday present. It was black oval and my greatest treasure. I could'n swim but I learned to dive in cool Finnish lakes. After a while I could stay at the surface as well, but that's another story...
My first star CMAS diving lisence I got in 1991. Now I'm TMx diver and TEC instructor AND A PROUD FATHER. My son made his first dive at age of 3 months!!!
When I'm not deep down, I prefer climbing as high as possible. So, mountaineering and paragliding are in the activity list. Unfortunately there is only 24 hours in a day... I'm engineer and development is the name of the game at my "civil" life.
