As soon as I looked down to where the "crazy" people where jumping to, my entire body shacked in fear. Yeah, just by looking down....it's a total fall of 220 meters and one of the scariest things I've witnessed!
As people would get ready and just stood at the platform I would watch their faces and they looked like they were going to crap their pants, literally. I saw one girl more excited then ever, and a boy who I could swear was about to cry before he jumped.
The instructions sounded pretty easy "Just jump forward" REALLY? I mean, that's a pretty obvious thing, but how the hell do you force or body to jump into nothing? It's not like jumping into a pool or something, it's a 220 METERS fall. I should say now that of course I didn't do it...sorry for all extreme sports lovers and fearless people, but this is not for me. In fact, every time I think about something risky and cool like jumping of a plane, bungy jumping, climbing really high things, paragliding or even roller coasters I automatically say to myself I don't wanna do them. It's a matter of choice and knowing what you want of your life, even if you're a traveler for a living that doesn't mean you need to go on board with everything there is to experience. You are free to choose and as a free person I choose not to do them. Wanna know why? Because I already know myself very well when it comes to this kind of situations. People normally say "Go, you're just scared. Once it's over you'll wanna do it again!" Ahhh...nop! I've been to roller coasters 3 times now. The 1st time I had to concentrate to be able to breath and not die and ended up crying in despair. The 2nd time a friend emotionally blackmailed me and because I'm such a good friend I went. Cried again and swore I would never do it again. And as they say, three time's a charm, I went with two friends on a roller coaster crying from the beginning till the end. In this 3 times my friends came to me at the end and asked if it hadn't been fun and I would just look at them like I wanted to kill them but I was still trying to calm myself down from fear.
I want the extraordinary life!
I get to the conclusion I'm not a very normal person...but maybe that's a good thing!
