Sleep with sharks – level 3

Sleep with sharks – level 3

06-04-2016 07:00

Giving a new meaning to the phrase "sleeping with the fishes"! This is a sleepover like no other. Airbnb are offering its users the chance to win a night in an underwater bedroom at Aquarium de Paris.

Scared yet? Well, what if we told you the lucky winners will be submerged in three million litres of water in a tank ten metres deep, with only a 360-degree transparent wall between them and some rather unusual neighbours – 35 sharks!

Guests will also enjoy an intimate meal at the aquarium with tank-side views. The experience is designed to give competition winners an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of sharks – how they live, why they're so misunderstood and their importance to the ocean's ecosystem.

Do you think you'd get a peaceful night's sleep? Maybe just don't watch “Jaws” before you go. Oh, and don't sleepwalk!

Difficult words: sleep with the fishes (when someone murders a person and throws him or her  in the water), submerge (to go under water), transparent (see-through), glimpse (a quick look).
