While my companions were on their way, I climbed up to a smaller tower where the zipline terminates. Armed with two cameras, I was trying to get the right position and angle to get the perfect videos and photos of my companions’ gliding and descent. After ziplining over the shimmering waters of the Blue Lagoon, my travel companions described the experience as absolutely incredible. The adrenaline rush was not enough for them. They had to persuade me to do it too.
After much discussion, these relentless individuals managed to convince me that it was the perfect day to overcome my fear. In the words of my seemingly wise friend, “You will really regret not doing this.” And these were the magic words. I finally agreed, and of course I had to do the “Superman” too.
When I reached the starting tower and waited for my turn, I found myself thinking:
“What the hell did I get myself into?”
“I hate them!”
“Why am I so gullible?”
These were just some of the words that crossed my mind. Unfortunately, the bill was paid and there was no turning back. And so I found myself gliding over Blue Lagoon shortly after. The ride only lasted for mere seconds, but I, up to this day, struggle to accurately describe the experience. It was so surreal, like a dream. At the beginning, I couldn’t enjoy the adrenaline rush because of fear. But later on, the seascape below just captivated me. I remember thinking that birds are so lucky to marvel at this beauty every day.
