As I’ve had a lot of time to think what next to do with my summer holidays, I figured why not do something I would have never thought I would do. I mean, so far this is exactly what this summer has been about – doing things I never thought I would have guts to do. So what’s next on the list?
I’m planning a trip to Mallorca at the end of this month and can’t wait to do my PADI Open Water Course! Why Scuba? Because I just can’t imagine what it must feel like to be down there – it’s like a completely different world with its own rules.
Freediving, unlike scuba, requires more practice and strength. Freedivers don’t use scuba gear and can only rely on themselves, on their own ability to hold their breath while going underwater. What is most important is to be able to keep yourself in control of all the actions while staying relaxed.
I am planning to do a freediving course while in Prague. I have just bought my mask yesterday and tried it out in a pool – while not being able to dive deep and only floating on the surface, I still enjoyed the ability to see what was happening underwater (not that anything was happening much but I still liked seeing people swim by).
It’s basically what I did in the pool yesterday except there’s also a snorkel involved. And swim fins. There are snorkeling trips available in Mallorca so I think I can’t miss out on those!
Back on solid ground, I’m excited for my and my friend’s first hitch hiking trip from Prague to Berlin in August! One could say it’s a bad idea since we’re two girls with zero experience but you only live once, right? 😉
