Canyoning is basically a adrenaline junkie hike where you swim, jump and slide on waterfalls+++ I’d like to share that I’m a ‘chicken’ and scared of height. However, my mother in law advised that even 60+ can do it. Okay, I’m in!
I was a solo female traveller. Yup, I hitch hiked 😛 After 5 consecutive failed cherry blossom trips, I decided to do something crazy… fly to Japan with the JR pass and just chase the blossoms. That means zero accommodation booking ahead of time. I traveled to wherever the news reported that the blossom was happening. This must be one of my most cherished memory 😀
Oui bus left me behind in Calais! Unforgettable! I had many travel war stories before, but this was a first ‘left behind’. This wasn’t entirely Ouibus’ fault though. There were many factors that created this mini-episode.
Harness, maybe some gloves and I was all set! Tarzan time!!! Swing in the trees, crawl inside a barrel, walk on ropes and all the other childhood fantasies sprang into life. The rules were basic. 2 clips and 1 pulley. At all times, there will be at least 1 clip on the line. If the instructors caught you not following this simple rule twice, you will be instructed to leave the property. There were various levels of difficulties – yellow, orange, green, blue, red, black. The higher level ones were VERY high above ground, 10m+, not for people with acrophobia for sure. 20min to 60min courses. Once in the park, can do any many courses as stamina allows.
