Sky dive in Wanaka

Location: Wanaka, New Zealand

After a very wet overnight stay in Queenstown we made our way back to Wanaka. Woke early this morning and took Katy to meet for bus to get to her brother's, went for a bacon buttie and then booked a sky dive (as you do!) The weather conditions were splendid, clear all around. I said I wanted to do this but since making this declaration I haven't thought about it too much. We finished our bacon butties by 9am and were booked on a sky dive at 10! I really thought that I would do this, enjoy it but draw a line under that experience but it was fantastic. the whole experience from booking it through a quirky New Zealand girl with lots of enthusiasm, viewing the safety video with footage of people freefalling and laughing nervously to meeting our instructors (Adam and Grant) it was all excellent fun and I can see myself doing this again. The feeling of freefall is indescribable, taking in the views hurtling through the sky was magic. Thses guys have the best job.

Take off with my very calm instructor, Adam from Southport.

All smiles at the beginning...on the ground.

I'm quite impressed with my little self that the nerves didn't set in until the door opened.

The beautiful views distracted me, for a few minutes, from what I was actually going to do.

Freefall for 45 seconds - what a feeling.

Off we go, spins and all.

Yeah!

Wow! Just writing about this makes me tingle!

12,000 ft.

Smashing!

Landing, very , very happy and bouncing to show this.
