Skydiving - What a Rush!
I'm a bit of a thrillseeker. I love fast cars, boats, and motorcycles. I almost lost it when my girlfriend bought us both a skydiving experience for my birthday - what a great gift!
She paid for both of us to do a tandem jump (where you're strapped to the belly of a professional instructor and they pull the chute. In order to jump solo, you need tons of lessons and training).
I was so excited when we rolled up to the tiny air strip and walked up to the hanger. My anticipation mounted as we climbed higher in the tiny prop plane.
It was my turn first. A few more seconds of fluttering anticipation, then weightlessness.
Woohoo! What a rush! And what a view! I had the time of my life, and I'll never forget it.
My girlfriend screamed and closed her eyes for most of it, but claims she still had fun.
As a bonus, she paid for mid-air pictures for both of us.
This is definitely a gift I'll always remember, and I recommend it for the thrillseeker in your life.
