Mareen is a German model and travel blogger who goes by Miss Everywhere on Instagram and her website, misseverywhere.com. The latter is where she documents her travels, and in a recent post she told the kind of funny and kind of terrifying tale behind the image above, in which she's floating in among circling sharks.
"My highlight on that day," she wrote, "...was swimming with sharks in compass cay which was very fun until one got a little hungry and decided to bit me." Not too badly, apparently, but she continued on to say she could not "tell you the second of shock I felt when i saw this shark opening his mouth grabbing my hand."
"People always tell you when a shark attacks you you should stay calm," Mareen concluded, "let me tell you in reality when it happens there is nothing like staying calm you completely freak out." We totally believe her.
She's okay, though. She writes that she just has "a scar now in shark teeth shape that will forever remind me of that beautiful day."
Aside from the sharks, Mareen's Instagram is gorgeous and will definitely get you in the mood for a day at the beach. Check out some more shots below.
