During my college days, I had opportunities for paragliding and parasailing but I never thought, one day I would move out of a plane at a height of 4000 meters, sky dive and feel the pampering of the wind, but it finally happened. My long cherished dream to soar high in the sky like a bird became true…wondering how? I will narrate you my experience of flying like a bird...
I recently visited Dubai with my family and knowing my keenness in sports and adventure activities, my sister provided me with the details of ‘Skydive Dubai’, a world renowned company that excel with innovative ideas in aerial sports. This company holds multiple Guinness records and has two sky dive drop zones in Dubai; Palm Jumeirah (Palm DZ) and Desert Campus. I was really fascinated by them and decided to experience skydive by opting Palm Dz as my drop zone.
I was all set to fall at a speed of 120 miles per hour and I could feel chills in my spine. I was super excited for this crazy moment in my life which I always dreamt for. And, finally it happened! I had a free fall from 13000 meters above palm Jumeirah which lasted for one minute leaving me at the top of the world. After one minute, the instructor set off the parachute and I could enjoy a relaxed drop-off in five minutes. I enjoyed the stunning views of the city beneath, during this 5 minutes fly over Palm Jumeirah to the landing zone. Later, I heard from a friend that adventurous souls should dive from, desert campus and I am keeping it for the next time.
You might be wondering, how cool I am, right?? Please, don’t be mistaken. I was very nervous but a chit-chat with the friendly and approachable instructors, (some of them are world-record holders) made me feel comfortable and determined to experience this exciting activity. I would say that if they were not here, I would have stepped back from this dream of mine!
