Georgia…..As many of you know, I am a type of traveler who is thirsty to lead a life of adventures. Whether I find myself in the middle of a vast ocean or on the peak of a sky-scraping mountain, in solo or in group, without having a second thought, I will always jump at every thrill activity. Not because I’m leaving “YOLO” but rather, I firmly believe that there are different moments to cherish and stories to tell in certain times and places. I was in Georgia and there was the chance to go paragliding.
My thinking was something like this “what I had experienced when I first visited Maldives (for example) can be totally different when I will visit it again ,with my future husband”. So for me, better to seize every opportunity that is on your plate! Right?
Dis I say that I decided to take a leap in Georgia by ticking off one of my dream activities, bucket list items – PARAGLIDING.? Well, I was that excited ! It is still fresh in my memory that last July 1st, 2016, I was able to witness God’s spectacular masterpiece in Gudauri. This is where part of the great and mighty Caucasus mountain range resides. Witnessing it is really inimitable because I just didn’t see it in a usual way like by walking or by passing around the area, but I saw it how a beautiful eagle sees it. I had the birds eye view experience!
My 15-minute, treasured, bucket list experience started when my knight-in-shining-armor (only that day) gave a short briefing and geared me up. I was a little bit nervous because I had to run with all my energy to reach the cliff and then jump. JUMP! Really? in Georgia???
To ease that roaring stampede in my belly I screamed at the top of my lungs. That long “ooooooohh” was changed to “WOWWWWW” and “AMAZING” and then “INCREDIBLE”. I was a parrot saying these words over and over because the view from the air was really exhilarating. I was fortunate because when I jumped the wind blew perfectly in one direction.
I was given an eagle, wide angle view of the landscape, the snow capped mountains, the blue sky with cotton clouds and the green scenery. I was in a cartoon movie that time, you know the the part when the character’s eyeballs were out flying in front of the face 🙂 When we got close to the landing point, my partner gave me a series of twirls and turns. It was a roller coaster in the air. It was full of fun and I will never forget every single detail and every single second.
The adage says ”A picture is worth a thousand words”, but for me, “A video is worth a million words”. I hope this video can fill what I have missed on this blog! Enjoy watching…
