I’m not fond of swimming, sorry. I know it’s ironic considering the shark theme of this blog. The reason I don’t like swimming is because I am a little bit germophobic, which means being afraid of germs (not Germans). Last time I swam in the sea must have been when I was 10 years old. I swam in a lake for the last time when I was 20, I think. It also must be years ago since I last swam in a swimmingpool. To answer your question; I’d rather not swim in the sea nor in the ocean, though maybe the sea is a little cleaner… Keep in mind, though, that I’m very biased by only knowing the North Sea. Its water is kinda brown/grey. The lake I swam in was Lago Maggiore in Italy which also had kinda brown water, yuck. I’ve never seen a tropical beach with clear water. If those places actually exist, then maybe that’d be okay to swim in ^^.
I’d love to visit Mont Saint-Michel. This is a little French community on a tidal island off the coast of Bretagne. Have you been there before?
