Karen's Aussie Extravaganza
Hi We are in Noosa now, we arrived Thursday and are staying for 4 nights, i love it here its so nice. Quite a bit more expensive though as its a more exclusive part of Oz, but i love it! It has a really nice beach and when i was there yesterday there were Dolphins swiming in the sea, lovely, you dont get that in Bournemouth hey! Our hostel is really nice too, although the kitchen is the worst we have seen yet, not nice! We went out on Friday night with two girls we met on our Fraser Island tour, they are staying in an appartment here, that was a really good night! they are also cooking us a roast dinner tonight, looking forward to that loads, haven't had one for sooooo long! Guess what i did today.....a tandem Skydive! i have never been so scared but excited all at once, it was amazing. We did it from 14,000 feet, the highest you could go, quite brave for my first jump i think! I was pretty nervous in the morning and when they were going through it with us but i really didn't feel too bad untill the guy opened the door, and Brett the guy jumping with me took me over and when i looked out i couldn't belive i was going out that way! i didn't have too much time to think about it though as he just pushed me and we were gone, i have never screamed so loud in my life, i cant explain what it felt like but i loved it! we were free falling for 65 seconds but it felt like a life time,the parachute went up and we went shooting upwards, then we were just flying through the air, it was so peacefull, apart from me going OH MY GOD !!!! we had about 6 mins of flying then we landed on the beach, and i landed on my feet, not my bum like i thought i would! i really did love it so much, i think everyone should try it, its the best feeling in the world and i would love to do it again! I got it all on video and photos too, so i can prove to you all that i really did do it! the video is very funny, i look very scared! ive put my photos in for an hour as i want them back asap. we are leaving Noosa tomorrow afternoon and making our way o Brisbane, will let you know how i get on there. See you soon.xx p.s still cant believe i jumped out a plane this morning, arrrrr!
