Aquatic Bucket List
August 24, 2014

Aquatic Bucket List

Today I felt pretty good about myself. One thing I like to do when I'm feeling on top of things is to envisage the future. I've never done this before but thought I'd make an ongoing bucket list of things I'd like to do when I go traveling. Small victories are the ones worth celebrating and I want to set some goals so that when I can eventually strike these off my bucket list I can gain that sense of accomplishment. Giving yourself something to look forward to is one of those things can be difficult but I'm confident that if I write these ideas down in a positive frame of mind then I won't be able to forget them. I thought I'd make it more interesting and give each bucket list I do have a theme so this one will be about water!

Without further ado I present my first 5 spots I'd like to see:

1) See The Silent Evolution - Jason deCaires Taylor - Mexico




These statues are found on the ocean floor of the crystal clear waters off the coast of Cancun, Mexico. Made by British sculptor, Jason deCaires Taylor, not only is this installation fascinating to look at, but they serve as an artificial reef attracting tonnes of aquatic life!

2) Swim in Jellyfish Lake - Eil Malk island in Palau


This marine lake located on one of the rocky uninhabited islands in the south lagoon of Palau has millions of golden jellyfish migrating horizontally across the lake daily.

3) Stroll the Glowing Shore - Maldives





Found at Vaadhoo, in the Maldives, this almost alien natural phenomenon occurs when
a chemical reaction called bioluminescence takes place. This happens when the plankton in the sea become disturbed by oxygen. Although a rare sight, it more commonly seen when the sea is in wake of ships.

4) Fish in the Azores - Portugese Islands, Azores



I have a cousin with a house here and he keeps inviting me to go. He's shown me loads of photos of the fish he's caught. It looks absolutely amazing... Full of colour and tropical fish, seems like a little over-looked paradise.

5) Shanghai Ocean Aquarium - China


  

This aquarium looks absolutely phenomenal, and I've been to some good aquariums. The aquarium features a 120-meter long tunnel going through a costal reef, coral reef, the open ocean, shark cove and a kelp cove. I can't think of a better place to see the underwater life.

Seeing as we're on the topic of aquatic life, in my next post I thought I wil
I show you my pet fish. They all signify by closest friends and we look after them in my student house. So that way no matter where we go, our fish can be together and unify us. 

Just so you know, I don't take credit for any of these pictures what so ever, dont sue me please :)

Just so you get to know me a little better, here's a song I can't stop listening today:

 

Staying positive,

Francis
