"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone", the walls of Balmers hostel advised me throughout my stay in Interlaken. Like most quotes/cliches, it was easily dismissed until I had an experience that made it come alive.
Jumping off of high shit has really expanded my mind. I feel the fear begin to build in my chest as I approach my challenge; my heart gradually, forcefully reminding me of my Homo Sapiens “fight or flight” evolutionary roots. And then, all of the sudden, I find myself standing on the edge, mind racing.
This moment is truly special. My mind is caught between two forces of nature: one telling me to retreat, there's nothing to be gained by doing a thing that my hypothalamus 100% knows is going to remove my genes from the pool - and the other telling me to overcome, and if for only a sliver of time, prove that I'm more than a nice little bundle of pre-programmed genetic code.
The canyon swing brought the fear! It's a leap from 295ft/90m high above the canyon floor, freefall of 164ft/50m, top speed of 120km/75mi/hour... and one profound deep breath before pushing forward into the abyss.
Rumor has it that this jump was so overwhelming for one recent female participant that they actually came to orgasm mid jump/swing (no joke). Take from that what you will... but you sure don't orgasm going fishing 😂

Not quite as coy as I would like but I DID THE HIGHEST CLIFF JUMP IN THE WORLD and nearly suffered a nervous breakdown / straight up shat myself in the process and just coz I enjoyed it THAT MUCH .... I went a 2nd.
Great things never come from comfort zones, When you die for 7 to 10 seconds and born again.🤓 Swinging form world 2nd higest canyon swing and jumping 160 meters straight down, one amazing way to celebrate my birthday..😊 We had no idea we were creating memories. We thought, we were just having fun.
Money comes back, but times doesn’t, Life has no limitations, except the ones you make
Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute your experience....!!!
It’s the little moment that make life great...🙃
