Swimming in the void

Had my first two diving sessions last weekend, and about four more to go the coming weekend.

Wearing two layers of 7mm neopren made me feel like glued together. Especially the silly hood, and the fancy gumboots. But the stuff definitely keeps you warm, and except the water in the gumboots I had the feeling there wasn’t water on my body.

The sight was as I have been told several times before: almost none. Made me feel quite disoriented, and a little claustrophobic. Without the diving teacher by my side, I’d have felt completely lost.

Looking forward to the weekend. Hopefully this time the sight will be a bit better.
