79 sleeps to go- Miami Skydive

Something that has been on my bucket list for a very long time, is to go skydiving.

I almost got to do it a couple of years ago in Wollongong with a friend, but was told I needed clearance from my surgeon due to the complication with my leg.

It’s not that I’ve given up on my search, I’ve just had other things get in the way.

When I found out that there was a free day in Miami on my contiki in August, I knew I just had to book in to sky dive over Miami!

I emailed a sky diving company and I passed everything with flying colors, I am under the weight limit, over 18 and have a relevant passport!

That was until I had to be honest with them about my leg and I was turned down immediately 😦

The thing is though, the second someone tells me I can’t do something, the more determined I become to prove them wrong!

So I am going to email the other company in Miami and see how I go with them, because, when there is a will, there will be a way 🙂

I will see my surgeon before I go overseas and do everything I can to gain clearance to be able to tick off the biggest and most challenging goal on my bucket list!

I am still being realistic, I know the rick of something going wrong, but it cant be any worse than what my leg has already been through. And you hear stories all the time of people going skydiving who cant land themselves, that’s what the instructors and tandem skydivers are for.

It is now my mission to skydive and tick it off my bucket list.

And if I can’t do it in Miami, then I will be damn sure to find somewhere else where I can 🙂
