Freediving day 1March 21, 2020 in Hong Kong ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C
Had a simple breakfast of toast as my stomach was feeling a bit average.
Walked 30 seconds to the Fusion freediving school.
Met our instructor for the day, an Aussie called Dave. Taught us freediving theory and some of the breathing techniques. I managed a 3min 15 hold out of the water. Hannah about 30 seconds.
Then went diving in the ocean and did some freedives both pulling down a line and swimming near the line down to about 15m. I really enjoyed it and felt very comfortable being able to have a 'float' at 15m down to look at the fishies.
The evening was at our restaurant with no one else around. Went down to the beach to show Hannah the nearby active volcano. Manage to get her 'I'm not happy with being so close to that' face.
We did much discussing about the pace of lockdown of various countries and decided to bring our flight back from the Saturday to the Tuesday.Read more
