Default Breathing and goggles

I've done swimming off and on for many years. I've never used goggles. Recently, I've tried two types of goggles, which I love for my eyes.

The problem I'm having is that with goggles on, I seem to get water in my mouth when I take a breath. Without the goggles I am fine...is this a common issue or perhaps I am doing something wrong.

It must be a matter of perception. When I don't have goggles on, I have trouble breathing. I tend to hold my breath. You just seem to have the opposite reaction. Perhaps being able to see clearly fools you into thinking your eyes and mouth are clear of the water? Possibly the goggles are causing some turbulence around your face?

Perhaps we should try swimming with out eyes closed.

Maybe with the goggles your face is automatically spending more time in the water.
