4 | SWIM WITH SHARKS Jessica Kay, 30, English WHY | I believe in doing one thing everyday that scares you. Watching these frightening looking creatures in the deep blue ocean will surely give anyone an adrenaline rush! HOW | Take a snorkeling tour focuing on sharks. While its obviously not safe to swim with great whites in the open ocean, there are many sharks that aren’t interested in us humans. I swam with blacktipped reef sharks and lemon sharks in French Polynesia, and nurse sharks in Belize. You’ll most likely encounter a few stingrays as well. I’m a Girl Gone International because I’m up for exploring anywhere and everywhere and will try anything at least once.
