Doing up a post on skydiving mainly cause I’ve paid 180SGD for a series of unglam shots and of course, I’ve to make full use of the photos. So Facebook, Instagram, Google+ and my blog. Am I missing anywhere else?
I’m a little half hearted here cause I’m also trying to figure out what to do at Zermatt over the next two days. Apparently, nothing. I guess I’ll be sitting at cafes/by the balcony enjoying the car free city. Oh, build a snowman. Maybe check out the igloo village.
Anyway, skydiving. Really glad to finally check this off my bucket list. It wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be. I was a little nervous on the car ride to the helicopter but was just too busy checking out the helicopter as I stepped on and too mesmerised by the view at 14 000 feet to be afraid. Hehehehe.
Blessed with amazing blue skies on that day. Pick up arrived at my hotel at 12 and we headed down to the skydive centre where we signed our lives away, paid for it, did 1 min of tummy time (the position we’re to be in when free falling), another minute on lifting out legs up for landing and we were ready!
That’s me all geared up in a nice orange overall.
My ride up. Also my first time on a helicopter! Killing two birds with one stone! I’m guessing that’s my “I’m flying” pose. Hahahaha.
Up up and away. Seriously, GoPro fisheye effects are just NOT flattering la. Still, 180SGD, must post!
Preparing to jump! How can anyone not be mesmerised by the view. Way above the top of Europe (Jungfraujoch, in case anyone is wondering)?!
And we jump! Falling at 200km/hr (woohoo!!). Tony taps my shoulder and shouts at me to look at the camera. Victory pose! Why are my eyes so small?
Check out that windblown hair and my facial fats getting an au naturale massage.
Parachute successfully deployed! I WILL SURVIVE!
Hanging out. Literally. And pretending that I’m controlling the parachute.
Then we spin around just for the fun of it.
And we land safely on our butts.
The first thing that came to mind upon landing was, god my ears are frozen. Hahahaha.
And that is my first ever skydiving experience. I can’t wait to do it again! No concrete plans but I’m hoping to work something out and get my skydiving license in Spain!
Oh boy, its way past my bedtime!
Over and out. 9.50PM.
