Have you ever missed something in your life so much? It may be your favorite food cooked by your grandmother or your favorite childhood best friend that you talked for hours before but now you don’t even know where she/he lives, or it can be a certain feeling or experience you feel when you visit a certain place.
Well, I just felt those emotions where I wasn’t able to properly dive for more than five months. I have missed my favorite hobby, my safe place where I can relax, and the certain feeling I feel when I reached the bottom part of the ocean and see the corals and hear the water current in my ears. It may sound crazy but I actually missed the anxiety I feel when I dive. The fear I feel when I do relaxation phase are: what if I can’t equalize properly? What if there’s a sea snake? What if I hit an unknown specie? These are just some of the things I think of when I’m about to dive. I have been thinking about these feelings for the past five months as to when can I feel it again.
So when I got invited to an island hopping birthday party, I didn’t even hesitate because I can’t wait to dive again. Here’s a one minute video of me freediving in Mactan Cebu. I really took the time to enjoy the moment, did not only dive but swam just to feel the sea current. I also sat in a very hot area just to feel the sun while I hear the waves crashing in our boat. It felt like home where I really belong.
My video was shot using Go Pro 9. If you had fun, you can see here some picture I got from my Island Hopping: https://peakd.com/hive-178638/@youreuniverse/island-hopping-freediving
See you on my next dive!
