Arrived to Dubai from Cairo on March 4th 2017. As I had a couple of days of work in Dubai and was lucky that a spot opened up, decided to take the opportunity and book a tandem sky dive experience.
Long story short, they fly you up to 4 km altitude, strap a professional to your harness and you jump out of a plane carrying the guy with the parachute on your back.
I must say it is a lifetime experience, for me it was feeling tension up until the moment I let go of everything and jumped. Video provided.. 🙂
Falling down towards the ground at 200 kph one quickly figures out how all the civilian passenger jets create a false sense of security flying inside them while they keep you nice and leveled 30 000 ft in the air.
The city of course looks amazing from the sky. Much better than from the Burj Khalifa. Too bad it lasts only for a couple of minutes. Alas, the plan is to do it again once.
Date of the jump was March 9th, 2017.
After a couple of days in Dubai, on March 10th went cracking forward to my favorite place to save some money, lovely Saudi Arabia.
