Mission beach has been incredible! Our hostels literally set in the middle of the rainforest! Kangaroos even come I'm the garden and it's the most chilled out place ever!
Our main reason to come here was for our skydiiiiive! Mission beach has the highest skydive in the whole of Australia at 14,000 ft, free falling for 60 seconds and you jump right onto the beach!
We've honestly never experienced anything like it, the feeling and the rush is amazing and we feel like we're addicted already. We ended up getting DVDs and photos so once we get to a computer we'll upload them! Their sooo funny! They record everything, before the jump, in the plane on the way up, jumping out the plane and landing!
I (Han) had to jump first and I'm sure the guy I was with did it on purpose! I got off the bus first and managed to be the last on the plane. I literally sat down and realised I was first to jump. 14,000ft was soooo high up! But even when my legs were out the side of the plane I was still grinning! When we jumped I can't even explain the feeling, I didn't even know what was happening and then free falling is just the most amazing thing ever! You hit up to 130mph, and my face all the way down is just priceless. My hair was whipping him in his face the whole way down though haha you can see it in the video, I'm surprised he could see what was happening. When you parachute gets pulled it all just stops and your gliding over the sea and beach and islands! It's beautiful! The guy I was with had been doing it for 30 years and I just can't imagine he'd ever get sick of his job. Cam landed after me and our faces were so so happy!
I (cam) had the sickest experience ever when I did my skydive! So I was like to the guy strapped to me! Are we nearly at 14,000ft coz we were pretty high! And he looks at his watch and he's like, "are you joking we have just reached 2,000ft". So finally after 20 minutes of flying the red light on the plane switches on which means it's time! The door flys open and it gets ten times noisier! I was so scared I was like omg I'm actually doing this! Within seconds Han just falls from the plane, then a few seconds later my legs are hanging over the plane and boom your stomach goes mega funny and you are just falling! The free fall to me was probably just as good as surfing and surfing is my favourite thing ever! It was just amazing I was going 120mph through the sky! My cheeks were going crazy, I just couldn't believe the view, it was insane! And I think me and Han are either going to do it in a few days time in cairns but I would prefer to do a bungi jump there so I'm going to try persuade her to do that instead! And then when the lennie family comes out I'll be taking Sarah, Andrew and little cally Wally up there! They are gunna love it! Peaaaaace!
