I’ve always been a thrill seeker and an adrenaline junkie, so I was on cloud nine for finally checking the number 1 item off my bucket list which was skydiving last August 2019 in Sydney, Australia.
I availed the 15,000ft Tandem Skydive from Skydive Australia at a cheaper price via Klook. I originally booked Sydney-Wollongong but due to the bad weather, we were transferred to Syndey-Newcastle. I skydived in the wintertime so they provided the necessary gear, but my hands were still freezing especially at high altitude (or maybe I was just too nervous LOL). Shout out to my instructor, Ralph, for doing the best that he could to calm my nerves! We jumped out of a plane from an altitude of 15,000 feet and freefall at over 200 km/hr for about a minute, then float under canopy over the spectacular beach and city views of Newcastle for a few minutes more. The moment we landed, I wanted to do it all over again. I think my new bucket list item is going to be solo skydiving haha!
