sunny 17 °C

So we all woke up regretting having paid to go throw ourselves out of a gondola 450ft above a lake lol. We all kept trying to tell each other it would be ok. We wanted to take our minds off of it since our jump wasn't until 430... so we went and rented quads and took them up to a couple different waterfalls outside Interlaken. It was beautiful, everything is so green and gorgeous it looks like it could be fake, with all the little chalets and everything. Definately my favorite place on the trip! We took the quads back and tried to decide what would be best to eat before being hung upside down lol. Had a bite and then got picked up and taken to the base of the first gondola... thank God they gave us beer on the way lol the nerves goin through that bus were crazy! We got there and took the gondola wayyy up the mountain to the base of the gondola we would be jumping out of! You get weighed and geared up and then we got split into 2 gondolas, shannon and I were in the first one (so happy about that) we all crammed into the gondola and headed up and they stopped 450 ft over the lake and the adrenaline pumping through that gondola was INTENSE! they had music pumping and tryin to hype everyone up... 3 guys jumped then shannon went and then it was my turn.... I though my heart was actually either going to stop or jump out of my chest! lol but its so quick you dont have time to think, I looked down and the cows below seriously looked like the size of a cat and thats when I knew we were freakin hiiiighhhh! then Boom.... 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, and you just throw yourself out, theres no other option... and the feeling was undescribable, the breath is actually taken out of you for about 10 seconds and its just free falling towards the water, then snapped back up and they eventually lower you into the boat waiting below... no joke I was high on adrenaline for like 3 hours after the jump... shannon and I got paddled back and then it was Leah, Mike and Sheena's turn... they all did shots before they went ( not sure if that would have been better or not ) lol they all went, Leah went VERY last which musta been so hard, and Sheena's terrified of heights so it was awesome we all did it.. we ended up back at the hostel around 10pm, made some dinner and then went back to the club to celebrate how much we freakin rocked for doing that! lol Had a good time and went to bed around 3.
