I now believe theres truth to what those wise men said. Were they from the East again? Whichever side they came from I can hereby confirm “where there is a will there is a way”. This is why;

All my life heights have never been my thing; Iv always avoided situations that involved heights; crossing a mere foot bridge was problem enough; especially if there is water underneath. Then Para Sailing happened.

Going through the menu of water sport activities in some little paradise somewhere in the Indian Ocean – Maldives to be precise – Yes!; the agent at the tour desk suggested we try Para Sailing. From the photos I could see it had something to do with heights and me, thankyou but no; jetski please!

I soon outgrew the jet ski fun and wanted to do something different, after all we were in the island for a week. I started garnering the hots for Parasailing and was like I mean why not?? This fun activity was up for grabs and am really not known to let such opportunities slide. And with that I signed up. I was dying to try this new thing it was even impossible to sleep the night before; a mixture of excitement and anxiety.  At that point Para Sailing was quite new to me i hadn’t heard or even researched on it. Basically its getting towed by a speedboat while hanging on a sort of parachute thing.

So next day we assemble at the hotel lobby and walk towards the area where we are to board the speed boat. The para sailing location is determined by the direction of the wind. A safety briefing is conducted which also involves instructions on the para sailing process. You may want to note while still in the mainland you sign a disclaimer; that the resort is not liable for any accident that may happen while out there. You can only hope the rope doesn’t get entangled; (oohhh the sharks would have a “field day”)or worse still a tsunami doesn’t happen. This is bittersweet fun; I thought. A mixture of excitement, anticipation, anxiety, confusion and a mind that shows you every other thing that could potentially go WRONG! I was quite paranoid;

But very DETERMINED!

We got strapped for safety and for believers like me, I mumbled an equally small paranoid prayer; You know the one that ends with “I pray my soul to keep??” Anyway you and your partner stand at the edge of the speed boat as the instructors do the final checks to ensure your well secured. You are then told to position yourself seated and they slowly start rolling the rope.

The ride is scheduled to last for 10 minutes and for maximum fun, they advise you not to look down. Slowly you go up and up and up and up;

Further Up…………………..

Until the rope is in like a straight diagonal line.

I focussed on looking around the island and I must admit that panoramic view is quite breath-taking. I tried to take pics while up there but honestly couldnt. My hands were tightly gripped on the ropes and my thoughts were on overdrive. This was no cheap thrill. The speed boat is now full on. Let.the.fun.begin!!

I made the mistake of looking down four minutes into the thrill. The instructors had warned us not to as this makes you dizzy. True to that, I couldnt stay up a minute longer. We had been given a code (which in this case was a cross armed sign) to let the instructors know if you wanted to be pulled down. The zig zagging of the speed boat down there; with us up here dangling on a piece of rope was too much for my mind to handle. Another couple with us on the boat didn’t make it too as one of them was totally unable to bear the height. Her partner and mine were however allowed to take another ride together to maximize their 10minutes. Lets just say atleast I made it to the maximum highest level and next time, am jumping out of a plane. Hello Sky Diving!

By the way this phrase “where there is a will theres a way”; was that really said by the wise men from the East??
