 Have you ever done something on vacation and thought wow that looks like it could be amazing or fun, and then ended up scared afterwards?

 For me it was snorkeling.  When I was in school one of our PE classes was swimming, but instead of just swimming laps and stuff we did fun things, like played water polo, learned how to breath through a snorkle, and even did kind of a water skiing thing (people pulled us out of the water,  I didnt do well at all).  So when I went to Hawaii I thought no biggie  I got this.  Well I did know how to snorkle but what I didnt imagine was being afraid of the fish!!!  I HATE slimy things so when they touched me I FREAKED out and started to hyerventalate LOL.   Im weird I know, I have gone white water rafting and was good, but the thought of fish touching me YIKES LOL.  I think I woould have to wear a wet suit to try it again.  I couldnt feel them touching me then hahaha.
