I just wanted to share with you our quick yet very fun trip to Batangas for a freediving session with one of the best freedivers, Gen Abanillo. I’ve always watched my then-boyfriend (now-husband) dive deep under water whenever we go to the beach and I’ve always envied it. If you don’t know yet, I used to be a swimmer at school when I was in elementary. So I kind of feel frustrated that I can’t go that deep under the sea. Well, of course, pool swimming and laps are different than swimming in open water, so that answers that.
Last weekend, our freediving session finally pushed through and I’m so happy that I made it (kind of). I still have a long way to go, but it’s a start and I truly enjoyed learning new and more effective techniques when it comes to diving.
I also want to share some of the photos my husband took of me while doing line training:
