New post on my blog. About my days in last weeks. 
It hasn't been easy and it hasn't been fun. But it's over for now and I am back to normal life with a smile on my face :)

#naturephotography #nature #sand #color #newzealand #splitapplerock Roys Peak. Wanaka. New Zealand.
For this view I climbed 4,5 hours. It was a hell. After 1st hour, I stopped, in pain, with bad blisters, out of breathe, out of motivation. #nojosedlotoneni 
I can't walk in my shoes on anymore, I realized, and decided to go back. I didn't want to fight. I suck in it. 
So I opened my backpack, took out my snack, started to eat and feel very upset. 
I texted my @tacianek and she told me, that I shouldn't bully myself. She was right. I kept sitting there in thoughts and told myself, that I can at least try. I don't have to go all the way up, if I won't feel like it. I can always go back. 
I started heading to the top. Barefoot. Suddenly if wasn't too hard to walk. 
There were plenty of moments when I thought I can't walk anymore... then I asked myself: "Ok, can you make 20 more steps?" "Well, 20 steps? Yeah, I can make 20 steps." So I did. And again, again, again... and I made it to the top. 
Did the fact, that I made it to the top, make me feel any different? No. But the journey did. #it'sallaboutthejourneynotthedestination

Yes! I actually did paraglide and I didn’t die!

I am a pussy. I am scared of heights. On the first couple of flights by plane I was crying because I was so scared. It simply doesn’t make me feel good to not have anything under my feet. But sometimes I get crazy ideas to challenge myself. That’s what makes me feel alive.

“Living with fear stops us taking risks, and if you don’t go out on the branch, you’re never going to get the best fruit.” —Sarah Parish

Paragliding has never really been my plan, goal or anything like that. The voucher for this experience with True Adventure Iceland just popped up on my browser one day and decided to get my attention. It worked.


After buying the voucher I waited way too long to purchase it. I was too busy at work and always occupied by something else until the summer was over and I booked my flight in September. As one could guess, it unfortunately had to be rescheduled for bad weather conditions. After consultation with Marta, one of the True Adventure team, we made an appointment for mid October, but the wind was very mild that day, which caused the flight to be very short. It would have been too risky to wait any longer, because the weather might have been too bad later in the month.


Sunday morning – D Day – the weather was stunning. I drove over to Vík, where I met the amazing folks from True Adventure. We wandered around for a bit to find the best spot to fly. Sammi, my pilot, told me some interesting facts about surroundings and we were ready to go.

My feelings after paragliding? I’ve never ever screamed that much in my life before! And I’ve never felt so happy before. Adrenalin is very addictive! I am ready to do this again as soon as possible. And a lot more. The fear is still there, but it’s absolutely worth it.
