Computer Im using sucks the bean bags and doesnt have a apostrophe.
Left munich and headed into Hopfgarten, Austria. As you enter the country youre surrounded by the greenest grass, most beautiful hills and clearest rivers youve ever seen. I know it makes me sound like a batty pirate describing it like that, but it is truely a spectacular sight.
We arrive ast our cabins in to see the reps waving. We all wave the entire time as soon as we see them. A rep gets on the bus to give us the run down. What she doesnt know is that while she is trying to do her speech, the whole bus is trying to put her off.
The first four rows are all male except for one girl in the front row aisle seat. All the males are staring at her tits (this time were allowed to get busted). Shes getting really embarrassed.
Then comes phase two.
The girl in the front row starts rubbing the inside of her thigh and then says "Its getting really hot in here" which starts phase 3.
All the guys on the bus take their shirts off. The reps freaking
out and really struggling to get through her speech.
Bo comes out of the toilet only in his undies, makes his way down the aisle and hugs her. hahaha. She was so embarrassed.
We then went for a ride on mountain bikes up to a resturant where we had lunch. The ride was about 2 hours. I had to refrain from taking too many photos because all the scenery is just so amazing. You could spend a whole day taking photos and not even touch on how amazing the scenery is.
I then headed off to para-gliding. Now, Im terrified of heights so this next part is going to make me sound like a total sissy. I still did it so fuck you.
Going up in the gondola I made small talk. The mountain we were going up was about 1000 meters high. We would be going about 600m of that )as the landing strip was 400m above sea level).
Got up there and waited patiently while my pilot prepared everything. I pretty much just sat there thinking "Now why the fuck did you sign up for this."
I looked down at my
hands to notice that I was trembling. I think thats the first time ive done that ever when it was self inflicted fear.
I watched the guy in front of me do a piss poor effort of running and he nearly stuffed up his flight and smashed into the cliff because of it. I decided that I was going to run for my life and not stop until I was in the air.
We got up there and I could see everything below me. It was a really amazing sight. I had my camera with me, but was too scared to take my hands off the straps, so I didnt take any photos (I bought a film roll the pilot had instead for 15 euro ($30nz)).
The pilot said to me "Are you shaking because youre cold or because youre scared," to which i replied "Im fucking scared man!"
We then did some tricks. Started off with a slow spin towards the ground which then sped up into an ultra fast death spin. I freaked out and told him to stop and we continued to glide slowly towards the ground.
Landing was my favourite part of
the journey. haha.
When we landed, I said to the pilot "I mightve been shaking, but on the bright side I didnt piss myself."
When we got back, I went with Matt and biked to the post office. THe guy in there kept saying "Sheila" "Shrimp on the Barby" and "Gidday Mate." He was funny as.
Thats me. Off to Venice tomorrow.
