One of the most frequently asked questions is also the most difficult.
What was the best thing you did while you were away? ahhh, I don’t know..
I don’t know why I cannot answer that question but my mind starts to go in this topsy turvy kalidoscope move when I hear that question. I had no idea.
No idea until today.
Just yesterday I was out on the water and had an amazing experience seeing these animals come up to the boat. But the idea of jumping into freezing water wasn’t the most appealing. But how could I turn down this experience? So I put on a wet suit so tight it made me nausous and jumped into the water.
And while the video that Travel Manitoba was kind enough to capture is not the most flattering and reinforces my self-consciousness about the pitch of my voice, I really don’t think there is any better way to explain what it’s like than to hear what I had to say when I finally dragged myself out of the water.
This is the most amazing thing I have ever done.
Machu Picchu was great, I loved the Atacama desert, all you can eat steak is an adventure but they don’t really compare. I’ve never had an experience where a wild animal wanted to interact and play with me. The belugas would see me as they swam by and turn back to get a better look.
It was so amazing that even though I have snorkeled before this was the moment I realized I need to learn to scuba dive.
