There's only one thing on my mind at the moment and this "thing" will continue to consume my mind for the next 23 days……… Scuba Diving in Mozambique!!! Wahahahaha are you jealous? Jealous jealous??? I cannot wait, it's going to be amazing!
This will be the first time I'm diving ever in open water, omg diving in the SEA! What? Me? Karen the person who only learnt how to swim when she was in university? Yes yes yes, this is part of the facing-your-fears-programme. So last week we had three classes where we were taught all the basics and must-know facts and details about scuba diving (which were very interesting and fun and totally dry), followed by 2 sessions in a 25m x 25m, 5m deep pool over the weekend. Given how little I am and my claustrophobic nature, a very tight and brand new wetsuit along with practically 20kg of gear did not work out very well on the first day! Having a panic attack under water does not help with the breathing AT ALL! But thanks to some very patient instructors, I was swimming like a fish underwater by the end of the second day, yay!
Wake up call #2 this month though – I really need to get fit! Should probably start swimming at the gym when I get the damn car back (post on Wake up call #1 to follow….)!
