What an amazing experience. Thank you Whitsundaybliss (adlink) for taking me there, and showing me an amazing time. You can see my trip with them more in details (here).
I came to Australia and I heard the Great Barrier Reef is dying, and I got so sad. I was so scared that I was not going to be able to see it, but I was lucky enough to see it. I mean, they said it has been dying for years because people put chemicals in the water and take stuff from the reef etc. People step on the reefs? Like seriously tourists, stay away from it.
It was an amazing experience, we wore stingray suits, snorkeling mask, and the things you put on your feet. I was just lying there with my face down in the water, swimming slowly around and looking at all the amazing colors. It was so many different color fishes, the reef was green, purple, blue, yellow, pinkish. Oh so beautiful! I am so happy I dealt with my fear and went out in the water. I had a few “omg moments, where I started freaking out in my head cause I thought too much about what was living in the sea, but I just stayed there and told my self “ you´re strong, you can do this!” It might sound weird to you guys, but when you are truly scared of something you get that “ I can do this moment and when you stil stay there and don´t go onboard the boat, you feel strong!
I would tell everyone who goes to Australia to see the Great Barrier Reef. I mean, you can´t go to Australia without seeing it? It´s like going to Los Angeles and not see the Hollywood Sign or Beverly Hills, g to China and not see the Great Wall of China or even go to London and not see Big Ben! And Paris and not see the Eiffel Tower. You know what I mean! Just do me a favor and go see the Great Barrier Reef. It is truly amazing. Full of colors 💛💜💙
