Witnessing the depths of the ocean is a life changing experience ???? With my stomach flushed out and all set, I took my first deep dive and jumped smack in the middle of the sea. This, I felt, was the most difficult part. We kept swimming, deeper and deeper and my trainer @scuba_andy kept on communicating through hand gestures to make sure I was alright with the water pressure. For someone like me, who is impulsive, hyper and over-excited, I had to get used to the slow motions of the water. Everything moved at a snail’s pace. Once we got to the bottom, we took pictures, moved around plants and rocks, tried to swim after schools of fish, and explored the deep waters as much as we could.
It was so quiet though, that the only thing I could hear was my own breath. But when I looked around, I was amazed at the infinite lengths of the ocean I could see. Unlike in big cities, where your vision is hindered by numerous obstacles, underwater all I saw was clear-cut beauty. I was in awe of the sheer magnificence of it all and just wanted time to stand still. I wanted to stay there and take it all in until I was rudely interrupted by my cylinder indicating that I was left with low levels of oxygen and so, hesitantly, I swam back up ???? #lifetimeexperince #scubadiving #gilitrawangan #giliislands #gilidivers #ocean #balidiaries????
