Bucket List #12: Experience Flying

Cowabunga!

(October 5, 2017)

…was probably the last word in my mind as I struggle to express the unholy mix of sheer excitement and overwhelming horror while I ‘fly’ down across Skyranch Tagaytay’s zipline. A surrendering ‘fuuuck…’ is all I could utter as I behold the majestic view of Taal Lake, Tagaytay and Batangas; and at the same time, horrified by how far deep I’m gonna fall to my demise if anything screws up. No nets, nor a vast body of water underneath were present to break my fall in case of an accident. Only the consolation of a guaranteed swift death in such an event.

Still, such a perilous predicament shan’t faze me from getting my PhP500’s worth of adrenaline rush (PhP880 if we’ll include the PhP300 worth of bills and the S$2 money clip that I lost during the ride) and get this item scratched off my bucket list. I must say, the 300-meter long 2-way ride was worth every peso. I enjoyed every inch of it (except for part where you’ll need to climb three storeys worth of stairs). It was truly an exhilarating experience, but something I probably wouldn’t do again any time soon. It’s just not the kind of ‘rush’ I’m into – I’d rather rappel or climb, and not entrust my life on such a small contraption tasked to endure the stress and velocity of hauling 92 kilos of flesh across 300 meters of cabling. I’ve had my fill, I’m good.

On the next adventure!

My formula to staying sane and happy

Be sincere Mean what you say, always follow through. Try not to pay lip service, the truth is often unpleasant but there’s no substitute for it. At the very least, be honest to yourself There will be times when it’ll be most logical or easiest for you to lie, be it to get out of trouble, cope from a failure or maybe cover up a mistake...
