During our nine days in the Seychelles, we spent two days getting our Padi certification. The descent on our first dive was the most terrifying thing I've ever done. There is something very unnatural about throwing yourself in to 40+ feet of water. Big thanks to our instructors, Thierry and Matthieu, for their patience and literally holding my hand. I could see my husband rolling his eyes through the mask! We completed two dives plus the classroom time, and now we're hooked. We're already planning a trip for later this year or early next year.
