November started with my PhD viva - the defense of my previous few years of research. The cross examination undertaken by experts in the field concealed threat detection was successful and pending correction of some typos, I gain the title of Doctor.
Since then I've been on holiday to Iceland and scuba dived Silfra Crack. These dives were kind of special, not only because the site is a UNESCO world heritage site of geological uniqueness and outstanding beauty, but I completed my hundredth logged dive there.

The water is pure glacial melt-water providing unsurpassed visibility and the threat of hypothermia. At 2°C it's very cold, thankfully topside air temperature was equally cold so I didn't overheat. Afterwards I enjoyed a relaxing warm swim (one of many) at a local geothermal pool to recover feeling in my extremities.
More photos to follow and this weeks top tip: If you enjoy seafood and get the chance to visit Iceland, then do so, the range and quality are world class.
