We know how it is. You’re stuck at your desk and the day seems to be going on forever. Your mind starts to wander — at first to “anywhere but here,” but then to exotic, faraway lands where your everyday problems and stress melt in the presence of true paradise. You want to go to there, and we want to go with you.

…scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef. This is one of the world’s premiere diving spots, one of the best attractions in Australia, and — best of all — home to Dori, Marlin, and Nemo.  Seeing the wide variety of vibrant marine life and colorful fish — who appear just as astonished by you as you are of them —  is like being transported to another world. There are few better daydreams than this colorful, watery oasis of tranquility that’s more amazing than any movie.
