“Safety”, “feeling like a fish in the water”, “feeling as if you’re in a dream” etc. have you ever really thought about these words and phrases actually? I haven’t, until I went underwater covering 11 meters depth, staying there for 18 minutes.
So, I got my scuba, actually I was helped to put it on, stood up hardly (it was terribly heavy), they threw me in the water and I went for diving in the Red Sea together with my diving instructor. Though I am not kind of a coward person, I had some strange feelings as it was for the first time and didn’t know what there waited for me.
As I mentioned above, scuba was very heavy and I also had stone belt on my waist. We went down slowly, water met us with air-like clearness, full of corals and colour fishes, blue, red, purple, black, grey etc all the colours of the nature were now underwater, my eyes were wide open, I was tremendously astonished, moving my head slightly left and right, as, with scuba no sharp movements are possible.My diver was holding my hand and carrying me slowly, showing various wonders of the Red Sea around us.
