oh my god.
thats is all i can say.(yeah rite!)
the one thing i wnated to do when in sydney was the bridgeclimb. I had been winding my mam up about me doing it for months beofre i came-saying that i was going to absail down the front of it(by the way u arent aloud to do that mam!)
i thought yeah this will be a piece of cake-am bit of a thrillseeker!
but must admit even i was scared when they started strapping us all up in a belt and expalining all the safety techniques. alos the hieght taht u climb too etc. didnt help taht teh group taht i was in the guy was really scared of flights and was a lovely shade of green.
felt like saying to our tour guide-let me out!!!
but honestly it is not scary at all-why? because u are so blown over by the scenery. the opera house looks even more magnificent, the harbour water that day was glistening green. it was fuull of sailing ships and yahts and the people looked like little ants.
the first bit of the climb was very steep up very narow steps -think everyones bum muscles had a good workout taht day!
our guide was great-told us about teh history of the bridge- the year it was built, how many people it took to build it, and u know non important information like how many people died building it! only 2 poeple fell off(very reassuring when u are at the top looking down at god knows how many racing cars under your feet)
sounds stupid but i felt really emotional. nearly had to use the communal tissue that the guides give u at the start! i mean yeah this IS a beautiful city-even with the skyscrappers and raods, and traffic. have got my photo of proof and a chessy certificate to mark the day.
next skydiving- 14,000 feet.
