le grand bleu

have you ever watched this film?

hung, james’ brother, recommended we watch it. it’s a 1988 french movie directed by luc besson, and filmed in the island of amorgos, in greece.

it is such a beautiful and peaceful movie about two free diver friends enzo and jaques. in the end it is very sad, but i loved watching their dives in the mediterranean sea.

free dive

have you ever heard of free dive?

it’s a sport in which you dive on a single breath, without the assistance of tanks – amazing right!?

tanya streeter holds several free diving records – in 2002, she broke the men’s no limit world diving record by diving to a depth of 525 feet (160 m) here in turks and caicos islands – for more info on free diving in turks and caicos, go here.
