On the first day of the cruise I watched a brother and sister climb the rock wall. The brother didn't even make it half way up before he threw in the towel and said he was done. The sister had a little more determination and made it all the way to the top. Of course the brother could not be upstaged by his sister, so he tried again and made it to the top. I debated for the next few days on doing this before I made the commitment on the third day.
After putting on the special climbing shoes, the helmet, and getting harnessed in, I put a little chalk on my hands and was ready to go. I said that I did not intend to make it all the way to the top because lets face it, I have short arms!
|Assessing my goal and deciding if I really wanted to do this.|
I surprised the bejeezus out of myself and I made it to the very top and rang the top bell!
I was then released to come down. I watched other do this before me and it actually looked more fun than it actually was. I guess I didn't lean back far enough to really repel down fast and fun. Instead, I was being lowered like a bucket gets lowered into a well.
Have you ever done anything out of your comfort zone while on vacation? -M
