Yesterday Michael and I woke up bright and early to go skydiving. When we arrived at the office in Coolangatta we were briefed on how to jump and then got suited up. We then took a short shuttle to the Gold Coast Airport where we jumped on a tiny little plane. As we were taking off I couldn't even speak; all I could think about was how my stomach felt. Upon reaching an altitude of 12,000 feet it was time to jump. My instructor said we would jump after counting down from three but then pushed me out of the plane immediately. For about 40 seconds we were in free fall and then we pulled the parachute and slowly fell onto the beach.
Heres a list of the dates for my future trips so everyone can keep up to date!
This past weekend our group took the train into Brisbane to celebrate Oktoberfest. Without any exaggeration this was one of the best weekends I’ve ever had. Upon arrival on Friday we checked into our first hostel and then explored the South Bank Parklands. We enjoyed some live music in the park over some wine, walked through the local museum, went on the giant ferris wheel and had a great Italian dinner.
