Swimming Through Jellyfish in Palau

Jellyfish Lake in Palau is filled to the brim with golden jellyfish -- and instead of avoiding the creatures, brave travelers flock to join them.

English teacher John Hawkins got the opportunity to swim among the beautiful creatures, and instead of hesitating, he dove in.

There was no danger of getting stung as the resident jellyfish have completely lost their sting because they have not had to fight off predators.

While some might be freaked out, Hawkins was ecstatic. "It didn't disappoint, as there was thousands of Jelly Fish all around me for a solid hour! The deeper you go, the more jelly fish come around. Jelly Fish Lake is a once in a life time experience and I suggest everybody goes and see's [sic] it," he wrote.

Hawkins is currently traveling around the world. You can follow his wild adventures on his blog.
