Swimming has become my go to form of exercise recently, and I try to swim on a daily basis. While I am not a professional swimmer, a good pair of swim goggles is still an important thing for me to have.
The goggles that Michael Phelps and other professional swimmers are different from the types of goggles that amateur, recreational swimmers like myself need. I looked it up, and the goggles that Michael Phelps uses can range anywhere between $20-60, depending on the model.
However, recently, I have been using a pair of Speedo goggles. A pack of 3 of these goggles is $18.99 on Amazon, or about $6 a pair. These goggles work great for me, as they are lightweight, sturdy, and flexible. This pair of goggles also seals to my face a lot better than other models that I have used, and I never have to adjust them while I am swimming. Also, I really like the pair that I am using because they have a tint on them that reduces the glare of the sun.
While these pairs of Speedo goggles are not made for professional swimmers (there is a reason they are only $6 each), they get the job done and do everything that I need them to do. If you are just looking to do recreational swimming and need a solid pair of goggles, I think this set of 3 is a good starting point!
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
