Ten reasons why I want to live the diver’s life:
- ‘Monday morning blues’ are a brilliant, crystal-clear blue sea
- All co-workers are your ‘buddies’
- Pressure is caused by the surrounding water, not by deadlines
- Morning rush hour is caused by schools of fish, not children
- Everyday use swimming pools instead of car-pools
- Unexpected meetings are with turtles and sharks
- Logging something is an achievement, not a task
- Refills are for tanks, not coffee cups
- The only computers are worn on your wrist
- The only suit you have to wear is a wetsuit!
My name is Tascha Eipe. I am a filmmaker and I work in India, directing shows for a travel channel. My work takes me to quite a lot of exotic places, and also some off the beaten track.
I first went diving in Muscat, Oman, and was hooked for life. After which I continued diving whenever I could – in Malaysia, Egypt, the Philippines and India. In August I went on a liveaboard dive trip to the Maldives and it changed my life! I swam with countless manta rays and even whale sharks! It made me realize that I am only truly happy when surrounded by the big blue.
I want to swim with dolphins. I want to photograph sharks. I want to learn how to make perfect bubble rings. I want to shoot an underwater film about our oceans and the wonders within it.
Live to dive. Dive to live. Either way works for me.
