Every time I wanted to go swimming in Darwin (Australia), I had to remind myself that the seas were home to sharks, jellyfish, sea snakes, and most importantly, might also house saltwater crocodiles. There is even a type of snail that can kill you – the cone snail. It had been nine months of living by dangerous waters or in the deserts of Australia, and I had been desperate to find my way to a beach where I could swim without fear of being killed by the nasties in the water. Finally I made it to some very pretty places in Indonesia. There is something about living by the beach that I love. It is made so much better by snorkelling, bright fish, turtles, paddleboards, and attempts at surfing.
