So, this is a sneak preview of my old Bucket List:
– 14. Learn how to swim
– 15. Go cage diving with Great Whites
And then one day in November 2014 I said: “Sign me up for the cage diving with great white sharks, please”, ok so I may have skipped a step with learning to swim, but really how essential was it to know how to swim when going cage diving with Great Whites?
After attending an amazing International Civil Society Week in Johannesburg, South Africa, I jumped at the chance of taking a two day trip to Cape Town. If you need something you wake you up at 6am on a Wednesday, get into a cage with 8 Great Whites surrounding. The adrenaline junkie within will be truly pleased.
