Ultralight Flight

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the Earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will always long return.”

– Leonardo Da Vinci

A few days ago my brother called me to let me know that I will be receiving my birthday surprise this thanksgiving weekend since I’m hardly home & to make sure I am dressed comfortably. Of course, since then, I wouldn’t stop asking him what the heck are we going to do? I’m sure it was some kind of event since he knows that I appreciate experiences so much more over materialistic things. As we approach to our destination yesterday, I swore I’ve been there before since it’s the similar location where I’ve gone skydiving last year. Just in case you didn’t know this about me yet, I have a serious fear of heights and for some reason just because I’ve gone sky diving (which I would love to do it again), I still don’t think I’ve lost my fear of falling and heights.

Without further ado, here’s a little video about this thrilling experience!

 

I was very surprised with myself that I didn’t get too scared or freaked out— like how I normally do. I was probably afraid for the first ten seconds of ascending to the sky but as soon as we start flying, all of my fears were gone. I automatically just felt at rest and at peace with the world, with the sky, mesmerized and admiring everything around me, above me and below me. If you have a fear of heights or a complete adrenaline junky or someone who loves speed like me, this would be a perfect outlet for you to face your fears, do something new or another thing to check off your bucket list & fly through the clouds. Check out Sky Rider Ultra Lights in Camarillo and ask for Mike. He is probably on of the funniest guys I’ve ever met. Enjoy the ride!

XOXO,

Joy
