My, oh my, what a wonderful day….
Or a crazy scary day, depending on your feelings.
Because….I went zip lining…
My sister-in-law and a girlfriend of hers came to visit us in Barbados last week, and this was one of the things they wanted to try when they were here. So Ian booked Friday off of work, and we drove out to Aerial Trek Zipline Adventures in the Jack-in-the-Box Gully.
The guides were very funny and certainly very professional, they didn’t even laugh at me after I got all suited up. Trust me, those harnesses are not a flattering look.
Ian went first, showing us how brave he was, sigh…
Kimberley demonstrating what to do if you brake too soon, and don’t quite reach the platform, look at those biceps!
I was too scared to look down, so the scenery shots are looking out. We were quite high up.
There are 8 platforms placed up in the canopy of trees with the highest one over 100 feet in the air! The longest cable is close to 300 feet, while the whole trip is over 1000 feet long.
What, you didn’t think I would do it!
I actually loved it and would even try it again, (but I NEVER looked down).
