Snorkelling in Cuba

December 10, 2013

Ohh hi, it's December! I can't believe it's almost Christmas again and the year is ending. I feel like I need a 13th month out of a year. I barely have time to finish all the projects I want to do before the year ends. It's so busy for me this month at work again but what's new. I could really use another sun vacation this month ;) It's freezing here in Toronto right now.
I have more posts from Cuba. One of the best thing that happened to me on this trip was trying out snorkeling. We all know by now that I can't swim but that hasn't stopped me from enjoying beach vacations. I mainly freak out when I can't reach the bottom of the floor or if the water is past my waist.Silly fears.

It took me a few days to warm up to the idea of doing it. I watched my bf snorkel one day while I stayed on the beach watching him. It didn't look too bad. So one day, I was tanning when I saw a few people throwing bread on the water. I went up to them and saw lots of fish swimming up to us. The water was so shallow and clear that I didn't even need to put goggles on. It was so much fun so I did that for awhile until my bf gave me the snorkel gear and told me to put it on so we can go underwater to have a closer look.
The goggles took some getting used to. I was having a hard time adjusting to breathe through my mouth but it went ok and I went underwater. It was amazing!!! I saw a lot of fish but I didn't have an underwater camera so I couldn't capture it all. Next time..

The best part was feeling like I was a mermaid!!!  It was so much fun and I had my bf holding my hand the whole time so I didn't panic. One of the highlight was seeing a green fish with blue lips.

Time to learn how to swim!


  1. I wish I were better at snorkeling, I have mind of matter breathing issues- but man this looks beautiful!!! :)

  2. I definitely want to try snorkelling one day!
