Story 7 - The Best day of my Life

Best Day of My Life - Transcript

Once in a blue moon I do something that makes me feel really alive. The last time was when I did my first skydive. My friend Bob invited me to go so I decided to try it. I would never in a million years have decided to do a skydive if Bob hadn’t invited me but I am so happy he did.

Bob picked me up in his car in the morning to go to the skydiving centre. There was a lot of traffic on the way there and we got delayed, but we arrived just in the nick of time for the training.

After the training we put on our suits and got into the plane. We took off and flew up into the sky. When it was time to jump I got nervous, but the instructor told me everything was ok. We moved towards the door of the plane. I closed my eyes and we jumped.

For a split second everything was silent and I thought I was dead. Then suddenly, I heard the noise of the wind and I opened my eyes and I was falling from the sky. I felt so free and it felt incredible, but it was over in the blink of an eye.

The instructor released the parachute and we glided in the sky. The views were amazing. After landing, we went to the training centre to change our clothes. One of the instructors asked us if we wanted to join them for a drink in the local bar. We decided to go.

They were very nice people and we enjoyed hearing their stories. We laughed a lot and had a whale of a time. At 12.00am we decided to call it a night. We went home happy. It was one of the best days of my life.
