I can fly!

Last week Simon and I finally used his Valentines present. I got him an Airkix flying experience. It's basically where you get to fly around in a wind tunnel so you get the feel of what it's like to free fall.

It was so good to try something different!

I have to be honest, it was much harder than it looked. You go into the wind tunnel with an instructor and they basically help steer you. The windspeed is 100mph and it is really noisy so at first I found it a little hard to concentrate. You have to maintain this perfect body position in order for the wind to maintain you otherwise you start veering off. Simon really enjoyed it too! He struggled with the body position too but particularly his legs. At first he looked like he was drowning bless him.

But like I said it was so fun to try something different and if we are in the Milton Keynes area another time we would definitely have another go!!!


It's now given me a taster of what it's like to sky dive and I won't lie, I'd like to try it one day!

Looks like fun!! I've always wanted to skydive, but that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you fall scares me.

That sounds like a blast. Maybe you should add sky diving to your bucket list!! :) I'm scared of heights so it would never work for me, lol... Happy Saturday!
