About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 100 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

Skydiving from a Helicopter




Thursday October 26, 2007

I left at 9 am to go skydiving from a helicopter. The jumpmaster told us that there were only 3 places in the world you could jump from a helicopter, Australia, Hawaii and Interlaken, Switzerland. 2 days ago I went skydiving out of a plane but the opportunity to jump from a helicopter was too great to pass on. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures from the jump but I did buy a video of my jump which is pretty wild. To jump from 12,000 feet right inside of the Jungfrau, Monch and Eiger mountains was quite an adrenaline jump. At one point we were only about 10 feet from a waterfall.
