Not that you care about this, but as an obvious reason, it is an important way to generate money and to make my travel dreams come true (A little bit exaggerated but I know that you get it). Anyway, I’m grateful that I have the energy and a boyfriend who supports me in everything I do, and I went anyway.Accompanied by fellow freedivers. We had one goal. To see and swim with…

This is why we all have that longing that we need to fit in. This is part of our human nature. So don’t be sad about that fact if you feel that way…
