Oh. My. God! Please can I just tell you!!! 


So, I am…scratch that, WAS petrified of swimming in the sea. 


Backstory: My dad grew up in Mombasa and would always tell us of these scary ‘hayvoons’ (creatures) in the water, like rock fish etc, which, if you stood on, would cause excruciating pain, plus; growing up in South Africa the sea always mentally equals sharks. Great White ones. (In South Africa? Go figures).


Anyways, so me, (still backstory) never swam in the sea til I was like 18 and went on a period of service to Sicily -Volcanic Island, INCREDIBLE place, whole other story- but that was the first place I swam in the sea, with little fish swimming past and everything.  


We’ve been going to awesome beaches around Athens, but I haven’t been able to REALLY swim coz I wanna be able to open my eyes under water but haven’t been able to coz I haven’t had goggles. 

BACK TO PRESENT DAY!!!!!

(See how many exclamation points? It means I’m super excited!) 

Today, we arrived on this little island after taking a ferry from Athens and went to our incredible little village hotel place. After a little nap, I walked down like 30 steps, and there was this UH-MAY-ZEENG little beachy-cove place, with beds, and canoes, and GOGGLES. WITH SNORKELS!!!!

Needless to say, I put on the goggles and snorkel and went swimming. And swimming. And swimming. Then came out. And then went back in. And swam. And swam. And swam some more. 

AND THEN I got some bread, and, armed with snorkel and goggles, went into the water and FED THE FISH!!! Have you ever fed fish before??? NOW, I can say I have! It’s flippen amazing!!!

I can’t even contain my excitement!! This is what I will be doing for the next 2 days!!  

Cue” The Little Mermaid”  Soundtrack :) 

Aaaaaaaaaaaaahmayzing!!!
