Landed in a Tree!
Verbois from Kyrgyzstan
my first skydiving jump, I was a little afraid, but
my class mates convinced me to do it. Fortunately,
I had the opportunity to do it with them. It was
fun to jump together.
from Tatiana Verbois
Before my first skydiving jump, I was a
little afraid, but my class mates
convinced me to do it.
was a nice sunny day when we went to skydive. We
took a 6 hour course and were ready to subdue the
sky. Unfortunately, the weather changed, and we had
to wait until the next weekend. We were really
upset. So, when the next weekend came, we finally
it was exciting! I cant express all the
feelings of free flight. I was happy, frightened,
excited, and satisfied. All of these feelings
happened at the same time. I could see the Earth
below me as I flew like a bird with my
last couple of seconds I realized I could not land
on the ground because right under me there was a
tree! I didn't have time to worry about it. I
landed in the tree, but it was a smooth landing. I
got a lot of help from my instructors, who ran to
the place where I landed. They were scared, but I
went to the office and sat in the back of a truck
with the instructor, and we laughed about it. When
it was over, all I could think about was when I
would be able to skydive again.
