One step closer
How else can I describe the weekend but successful?
As of 6:30pm yesterday, at Paramount Canada's Wonderland, I have moved one step closer to my long term hopefully-not-fatal-wish of bungee-jumping off a bridge over a scenic river somewhere in the world. I went on the 230feet (23 stories) Drop Zone ride as a warm-up and then ultimate weighlessness on the Xtreme Skyflyer that power strubng us - Irma(unabashed 20 year old), Shehzeen(hyperactive 15 year old) and me, going down 170feet at a speed of 100K/hr.
Petrified doesn't even begin to describe my feeling on the first 2 seconds of drop.
2 more seconds and ......I began to like being alive.
A few more seconds and with our feet on the platform and I was ready to burst out of my skin with pure joy for having gone through with it.
Yep.. definitley 25% less scared of falling of heights. Might do it again, just so I can buy the video where I look a little less horrified.
