“The seaweed is always greener in somebody else’s lake” - Sebastian


I was born and raised in Reykjavík, Iceland. I spent a lot of time in the countryside with my family where my grandparents live where I’d go horseback riding and fishing. My parents used to take me camping around Iceland every summer, which are one of my fondest childhood memories. On my 20th year I decided to go travelling and discovered the underwater world in Negros Oriental, Philippines, where I did volunteer work in marine conservation. Since then I’ve had a weak spot for both traveling and diving. Now I can’t wait to keep exploring more of what Iceland has to offer in diving.
