Skydive



So I recently did a sky dive for charity! It was for the league of friends of the alex hospital which is my local hospital and it's a small charity that provides the cafe services and fundraising for the hospital. It was literally the most amazing experience of my life so I wanted to fill you in a bit if you are thinking of doing one. 

It's scary af waiting for the sky dive and the little plane you go up in is possibly even scarier, the only thing that really relaxed me was the views and gosh were they amazing. We did our skydive in the countryside as you can imagine and the views of the fields and small villages were simply breathtaking. In fact that breathtaking that I literally forgot i was about to free fall out of a plane. 

It was terrifying but weirdly exciting watching other people jump out of the plane, then it hit my turn. The man shuffled down on the floor and you don't really have time to take in whats happening before you are out. Free falling was absolutely terrifying, mainly the fact I couldn't breathe properly. The instructor I was with pointed upwards so I knew to put my head up up. When I actually caught my breath it was so amazing, there is literally no feeling like it, the rush of adrenalin is crazy. We were free falling for a total of 45 seconds which was actually a mind blowing 13,000 feet! 

My favourite part of all was when the parachute opened up and you could really look at all of the surroundings. The feeling that you are just floating through the air was amazing and of course the views were an added bonus. I felt like I never wanted to come back down to earth. 

The descent was pretty easy, I just put my feet on the instructors and he did all the work. We literally landed feet down and carried on walking, I felt a bit like I was a bond girl walking away from a burning explosion after parachuting to safety ha ha. I did notice that everyone else fell over so felt pretty good about not hurting my bum! 

Overall it was just an amazing experience and although I looked a bit like a weird version of Andy Pandy I would 10000% do it all over again. I feel so privileged to have been given the opportunity to do a sky dive let alone the fact it was for such a good cause! 

In total me and emma raised £1,750 for charity and had the best day of our lives. If you have the chance to do one I would strongly recommend, also why not do it for charity and contribute to an amazing cause that you hold really close to your hearts.
