My skydive - At 6pm we got picked up and taken to the 'airstrip' I was really nervous by this point and even more nervous when we arrived!! We got taken in the office and got into our jump suits, very sexy!!! We were given a little talk then the 1st 2 people were taken up in the plane so we had to wait another 30mins.
The plane got back and it was mine and Kats go, we had a really nice scenic 20min flight over the mountains and glacier which was amazing then came the time as we were approaching 12,000 feet. My instructor asked me why I was so quiet!!! I said I was just admiring the scenery but obviousley the real reason was that I was about to throw myself out of a plane!!!
I was first out of me and Kat so as we got to 12,000 feet, the door was flung open then I was pushed to the edge. As we left the plane we did 2 flips, It was amazing and I wasn't scared anymore, I was flying!! We freefell for about 45 seconds untill we reached 5,000 feet then the instructor pulled the parachute. He did a couple of twirls with the shute then we just glided to the ground.
It was the best experience ever I loved it and what an amazing place to do it. When we landed we quickly jumped up to watch Kats landing and take some pics. I brought the dvd and photos which are hilarious my face was going mad and I don't think I swore too much!!!
After the skydive we had an early night as we were off to Lake Wanaka early the following morning.
