Looking at the waters surface, and the play of both blue, and green of depthness always — always spell binds me. Let us put the blame on having born under the stars of water sign, so we won’t have any argument at that. I am no mermaid, and I’d probably turn out to be a bad one.
Scheduled to have a talk for the Social Media Influencers Summit 2013 by the Cebu Bloggers Society, Inc. I was up for a travel to Cebu City again. Doi, Audreyisms good friend has always been welcoming. I’ve only meet her twice then, in more than 5 years of their friendship. She invited me to join a few others I’ve already met on an event at East West. They will be freediving, and I get a real chance of drowning at that. And I was actually up for it.
Freediving is diving in depths holding your breathe the longest you can without any aid of diving gears expect for a snorkeling set if you really must use one, and swimming fins. So one starts out snorkeling.
And dives into the water to deeper depths. I honestly do not know anything about it, and it’s technicalities. The friends I was with are pretty good at what they do considering having no formal training on it. Here are some of the images Doi | The Travelling Feet
got from that dive session.
There were several moment when I must have swallowed sea water in volumes that I should have had. But going down deep, and looking at the diverse, and beautiful marine life both scared, and captivated me.
I can only swim for my life’s sake, but freediving is something I could give a second try at. Thanks to Doi, Johnn, Dylan, Edwin, Noel, and Hendri for letting me tag along with them. More images from Doi’s Facebook account
, and if you’re into freediving, and anything marine — better follow her, and those guys I dived with. Till my next wandering underwater!
