I had always been kind of afraid of seawater. When I went snorkelling for the first time two years ago, on a whim after my first real heartbreak (“I need to do something crazy to make me feel better about myself”), it was a personal breakthrough. Since then, snorkelling became something special to me. Sort of like my own self-care hack.
I was in Fiji last month and I just couldn’t pass up on swimming with some sharks and mantas. In my previous snorkel experiences, I had only seen small fishes. The swims in Fiji really took it up many many many notches.
I am still reeling in awe of the clear waters and rich marine life in Fiji. Snorkelling has really opened up a whole new (underwater) world to me. Being so close to these creatures made my heart sing.
Maybe, just maybe, diving is what I am going to.. dive into next.
