I couldn't talk Brian into jumping with me but he took some good photos. There were 3 other girls that I jumped with and we all had a great time. I figured it was safe because the place won the Tourism Award for 2008 so I figured they knew what they were dong.
I told myself I'd never do it again - I did it in college and it wasn't the best experience (bad weather and I landed 2 miles away in a cornfield). But, after hearing about this skydive place and seeing the area I had to. It is the most gorgeous landscape
I signed up and went one afternoon but the clouds were too thick so I had to reschedule for the next morning. I figured I'd be scared to death but I had no problem at all - only really excited. Once in the plane it took 12 minutes to get to 12,000 ft and they scenery was CRAZY beautiful! For some reason God spent a lot of time on New Zealand. I can't describe the feeling when the door opened and my guy had me dangling out of the opening - I put my head back and we tumbled out. I had told him I wanted to do somersaults in the air and glad I did. We went around and around and I could see the airplane flying away. It was cold but unbelievable!
I can say I'll never do it again, but I won't believe myself. What I can say is I'll never do it in a more beautiful place than New Zealand!
