The skydive was INCREDIBLE! My boyfriend and I did a tandem skydive, from 12,000ft up, on Saturday 19th May 2012. We raised money for Wiltshire Air Ambulance, which is an amazing charity that pretty much relies on donations!
I felt so sick and I cried before the jump. I had to jump first.. I was absolutely terrified! My hands were shaking and then when I held my hands to stop the shakes, it made my legs start shaking, haha. Everyone kept trying to comfort me and calm me down, haha. I had it drilled into my mind that I was going to die and my parachute wouldn't open. But it did, obviously. Worrying for absolutely nothing.
Honestly, if any of you ever get the opportunity to do a skydive DO IT! You will hate it before, but once you've done it, you will love it and wish you were still up there freefalling! It's honestly just WOW. It's like a dream. Above the clouds is just so beautiful! So fluffy and golden. It felt like it was all a massive daydream. It feels weird to think I've actually done a skydive now.. It was all over so quickly.. But totally worth every second! Most amazing experience ever.
I will try and upload my skydiving video to YouTube soon and once I have I shall post it onto here! I'll either edit this post and put it on here or put it into a new one.
Here's a few of my skydiving photos (click to enlarge):
