If you want invalubale advise on how to dive the world on a shoe string budget, just ask Jillian. She amazed me with her ability to be gone for literally many months at a time embracing all the world has to offer. She loves to travel, loves meeting new people, loves exploring (and embracing with an open mind new cultures), loves animals (especialy marine life) and loves diving. Frankly, she just loves. She will update this forum often with pictures, videos and best of all her advise on where to go and how to do it without breaking the bank. Here are a few shots from her just to get this awesome invaluable forum started (beleive me she has thousands more).
