A-to-Z Challenge: Fly

Skydiving is special because it’s almost the closest to an out-of-body experience you can have.

When I first moved to town, I was trying to learn where everything was by visiting various major landmarks. One day, I saw this large sign on a building off the side of the highway.

I pondered what it would be like to fly around in a tank and float around like an astronaut. Haven’t gone yet, but every time I look at these pictures, I imagine what it would be like.

The closest experience I have to flying is paragliding with my mom 10 years ago. We decided to look our fear of heights in the face and try out this amazing mother-daughter experience together. We gazed into each other’s faces for encouragement as the boat pulled us quickly above the ocean. There’s nothing quite like the experience of flying in the air seeing the sparkling ocean below! Mom and I were screaming with our hair whipping around in the wind, “Hey! We’re doing this!” The lush green island looked so beautiful.

As I’m recalling all of these memories, I’m feeling sleepy. Maybe, I’ll dream of flying. Good night wherever you all are! πŸ˜€

Hello everyone! I'm a technical writer by day, creative writer by night. I have a wild imagination yearning for more in life. I'm fascinated by many subjects that have developed into a sort of mental and physical wanderlust that ultimately leads me to experience a variety of cultural shocks. Welcome to my journey and looking forward to reading your blogs!

  1. What a fun memory to share with your Mom! I admire your courage! Hang gliding or sky diving is something I don’t believe I can do. My friend sky dived once and she said it was fabulous! Hope you get to go sometime! πŸ™‚

    1. LOL, Thanks Richa! Maybe someday they’ll be a blog post about it in the future! πŸ˜‰ ❀ I've been recently inspired by a podcast of a woman who did 100 things that scared her in 100 days. πŸ˜€
