There is not much to do on Gili Air, but to go snorkeling and diving. I did a beginner´s diving course. Only by filing out the sheet, asking me questions about my curet health status and history, I realized how lucky I am. No asthma, no heart problems, and so on. Uff, thank you!
Still I couldn´t go down on my first day. Breathing through the mouth, hearing all those sounds under water, trusting in technology, not being able to scream or to talk when you get scared – there was no way I could go down into the water. The next day we played in the pool and I started liking the sensation of being under water. On day 2 I went down. And on day 4 I even enjoyed the ride 🙂
Underwater pics will follow some day, when I get them from my dive buddy.
