As I sat on the boat swaying to the middle of the sea, I began to get nervous about whether my decision was wrong.
Snorkeling is for everyone who knows how to swim or not. I only need to wear a lifejacket, a snorkel and I can face the ocean and see the ocean with lots of interesting things.
I am a person who is afraid of water and has never learned how to swim successfully. Meaning I have tried to join many different swimming classes but have not overcome my fear of being able to swim underwater.
During the annual summer vacation with my best friends, we traveled thousands of kilometers together by different means such as airplanes, buses, speed boats. We dropped by the beach to visit the beautiful island of Koh Lipe – a pristine island in southern Thailand close to Langkawi – Malaysia.
It is famous for its clear blue sea, white sand and a unique sport snorkeling. A completely foreign sport to me. The whole group of 5 best friends buy snorkeling tours together and I swear I don’t even know how to write snorkeling. But I still bought the tour with my friends.
Then stop at the most beautiful beach in Koh Lipe to watch the sunset. As I sat on the boat swaying to the middle of the sea, I began to get nervous about whether my decision was wrong. At the first stop, the whole group started wearing life jackets and breathing tubes and excitedly jumped into the sea. They began the journey to explore the ocean.
As for me, a girl who could not swim and was afraid of water, she did not dare leave the boat. however, after being encouraged and helped by the guide cum the train driver. I also dived and began my exploration journey.
