Jumping out of a Plane at 12,000ft

Skydiving is probably the last thing on the mind of someone who, like me, has a fear of heights. You may recall how Rock Climbing in Thailand was a real challenge for me but I was quite intrigued how by the end of the experience I felt much more comfortable.

I was keen to do more height-related activities as I travelled, so when I heard about skydiving over the mountains in Queenstown, New Zealand, I knew I had to do it.

The weather was perfect for it (you’ll see from the photos) and the experience certainly didn’t disappoint. It’s one of the top day time activities I’ve done on my trip.

Why You Should Keep a Dream Diary

Soon after I landed at the Wugulun Kung Fu School, I blogged about how doing something small but significant every morning has been suggested to materially positively affect your life. After finding myself dreaming more often in sleep, I took up an idea from a friend of mine called a dream diary. Those with attention to detail of my past photos, would have seen it noted into the new schedule I wrote up a couple of months ago. I didn’t want to mention anything until some time had passed.

If you haven’t already guessed it, it’s a record of the dreams you have which you write down every morning as soon as you wake up. I did this because I thought it would be a great idea to see what my subconscious mind was thinking about and any enlightenment that might bring. Thoughts, feelings and fears. i wouldn’t turn my nose up at a few lottery number premonitions if they came about either.

In this blog I explain what I found in my own dreams and how you could go about keeping one yourself.

12 Days To Go – 5 Things I’m Most Looking Forward To On My Trip

I won’t lie that with 12 days to go, there’s a part of me that’s getting a little nervous now. My mind’s playing games on all the eventualities that I haven’t planned for. When I step back from the moment and realise this, I can see that all the planning I need to do is done now. Instead, I try to think about the positives – the things that I’m looking forward to on the trip.

1) Testing my comfort zone
2) Being the sole decision make for where, when and how to travel
3) Seeing who and what I miss about home
4) Real life stories reshaping my own perspective
5) Answering the question “what do you really need in life?”

In this post, I explain these 5 things that mean the most to me….

 
1) Testing my comfort zone

Our comfort zone is the behavioural periphery […]
