Tara is the ultimate #dagatgoals.

Luscious and dreamy, that is how Gen’s feed strikes one’s eyes. This pinay freediver is the co-founder of Seazoned Philippines and travels around PH tropical waters, showing us how it’s done.
We dive not because we want to impress others, or because we want to be cool, or we want to belong to a group. . Let's go back to the roots when we almost can't duck dive, can't kick or even hold our breath that long. Let's go back to the day when we're humble, and that the only competition that we have is our self, not others. #pinayfreediver #seazonedph #freedive Shot by @nicosorianoph Edit by yours truly.
