Adrenaline rush: Wingwalking

A couple of weeks ago I did something a litttttle crazy that I've been meaning to do for a while. I crossed off wingwalking from my bucket list.

For those of you who aren't sure what that is, you get strapped on to the top of a bi-plane and it takes off, completes some tight turns and drops you up and down in the air. It was a bit scary initially but once it got going I really enjoyed it. I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie and I really believe that nothing is ever as scary as you think it's going to be; Wingwalking was definitely one of those things that seem a lot worse in your head before it starts when in reality it was just really really fun.

I had so much fun wingwalking, and got the most cringe inducing video of all time that will never see the public eye haha. Genuinely looks like I am a cardboard cut-out wibbling about in front of a moving view and my neck is swangling about all over the place which was just really unpleasant viewing and made me feel so old and wrinkly haha.

Even funnier was that they had forgotten to remove the video of the person before me. It was a little old man having the time of his life and so funny and cute to watch hahaha.

I did it to raise money for a maternity hospital because one of my friends had a baby there that was in intensive care for a long time and almost passed away. I think having a reason to do really helped with the nerves at the start.

The landing was the bit I was most scared about but it was really smooth and the flight itself was fantastic. If you're considering it I would definitely recommend it! I was so panicked about the drops in the air feeling like something was going wrong with the plane that I came close to asking them to leave it out but I'm so glad I didn't because it was just really good fun at the time and I ended up loving it.
