“Fear is temporary, regret is forever”
Today was the day, that my dad and myself decided to team up and tackle one of the biggest items on our bucket list and as I’m sure you can guess what it was… skydiving!
I’ve added some of the amazing photos from my journey out of a perfectly safe aircraft to throwing myself towards earth at nearly 200km/h or 120mph.
The first photo below is me hanging off the edge of the aircraft at 15,000 feet in the air contemplating my life choices and how I’ve found myself in this situation:
Next up we have this amazing photo of us mid-freefall towards earth and this is the closest anyone will ever get to flying, the real type of flying… not sitting in business class enjoying a glass of champagne with an in-flight movie.
This is when my love for skydiving kicked in and how amazing it truly is. There is nothing else in the world such like skydiving. One thing that’s true is that you can skydive once without a parachute, but if you want to skydive twice, you’ll need to bring a parachute on the first jump, haha!
And last but not least, is the picture of relief once the parachute has opened and we are safely heading towards the landing zone.
In conclusion, I can keep calling this experience amazing, but words honestly do not do this experience any justice whatsoever. If you ever have the opportunity to skydive, no matter how terrified you may be, trust me take it and you’ll love the experience, and certainly one you’ll never forget.
