We have had the privilege of doing some amazing things during the course of our lives. On one of our recent trips to Italy we went on a Zipline between 2 mountains where we got up to 110kph. You can read about our Day out from Matera where we did the zipline.
I have always wanted an opportunity to skydive and parachute. It is still on the ‘to do’ list.
Well, now I can say that I can fly. One of our attractions in Brisbane is indoor skydiving. They have a wind tunnel that allows one to experience skydiving without jumping out of a plane. This was incredibly exhilarating. After getting kitted up and a short training session I had an instructor join me in the wind tunnel. I competed a few sessions slowly getting better at ‘flying’. One of the highlights was strapping on a virtual reality headset and experiencing a wingsuit flight flowing the contours along one of the mountains in the Alps. WoW!!
Here is short video of me flying with the instructor. A higher resolution file can be found at https://youtu.be/kfsOu7OzM7w
I can highly recommend this activity.
