Skydiving, Lake Taupo, New Zealand: 15/01/2008
I was at Lake Taupo (North Island, New Zealand). It was a nice day, several others were doing it, so – despite the cost (about £200 for dive, video/photos, 2 x t-shirts), decided to go for it with Taupo Tandem Skydiving. There were options of 9,000, 12,000 and 15,000 feet. If I’m only going to do this once then let’s go for 15,000 feet, and let’s get filmed doing it! As it was a nice day, we could see both ends of the North Island… or I’m sure my jump-buddy could… I forgot to look up… I was too busy screaming for the first 15 seconds, by which time we were probably at the 12,000 feet height!
