Up, Up and Away!

30 Jan

Tremendous experience which I have been craving for since long time back. My first parasail ride all the way to Ile Aux Cerfs! Some experience just need to be shared!

Before the parasailing, we had awesome trio tube riding and had so much fun ‘shouting’. I got to wear the kids life jacket, because maybe I was mistaken for one.

Next, we had to wait for more than one hour under the scorching sun sitting on the beach for our next activity – Undersea walking. I was really looking forward for this one, especially after watching the indian movie, zindagi na milega dobara, where there is a nice part on undersea walking. But trust me, you would not want to be in my place. It was a terrible experience. Firstly because the people getting you down under the sea were perverts; secondly you had to wear a heavy round-shaped thing on your head, which makes you feel like you are carrying all the burden of the whole universe on your shoulder; and lastly the guys were also supposed to take our photos with a camera and give us a CD. Minor problem: the CD never opened, so we got no photos under the sea.

Before getting down, the guys taught us signs to be able to communicate under water. For example, OK, not OK, etc. But the fun part of it was when we got to hold a piece of bread to get the fish to eat in your hands. It was cute! Really!

And finally, my cousins and I were ready for the first parasailing adventure of our lifetime. We set off on a boat to a small platform in the middle of the sea and waited for our turns to go high up. IT WAS IMPRESSIVE. I could feel the tingle in my stomach and the adrenaline rushing through my body as we were being pulled high into the sky.

We went up for a total of around 6 minutes and it was soooo peaceful and quiet up there.

It was really a lovely experience 🙂
And finally before landing us on the platform, our feet had a dip in the warm blue sea.  The ‘floating in the wind’ feeling and admiring the gorgeous view is amazing and a must to-do activity, atleast before you die 😉
