Last year, I welcomed my 29 year old self on the summit of Mt. Iraya in Batanes. It was a euphoric experience and being at home in the land of the Ivatans was a unique experience every woman deserves. Solo travelling is what every woman actually must try.
Turning another leaf in the age of time, I decided to start my being 30 in the arms of the sea. This had always been on the back of my mind, however since mountain climbing had literally taken over my life, it is an activity I’ve pushed to the backseat. Somehow turning 30 gave me the license to do something different and I discovered another world – a watery world of corals, schools of fish and my fears. Alas, it was indeed rewarding albeit the fear and ear issues.
I went scuba diving!
So welcome to my first exploration of the world deep down under!
