I got convinced to do a skydive after hearing my friends experiences. Myself and three friends booked in to do it the next day. We were all terrified heading to the aerodrome but once you get there you are completely at ease. We lay around on bean bags watching others come in from their jump and saw their reactions and couldn't wait to get up! We got our training and bodysuits and I went up with Cornelia. My sister had a cool guy, think his name was Bruno. Anyway we laughed and joked with them all the way up. The 15 minute climb was amazing, the views of the "end of the world" were unreal. It is hard to put into words how amazing the jump itself was. 12000ft free falling over the algarve! And then she pulled the cord and let me steer and spin around as we floated down looking over the beaches and villas. We had a soft landing and my immediate thought was that I wanted to do that again!! We went back a month later and did a jump from 15,000feet. They had a special plane in at the time were loads of us could go up together. I got a DVD and photos of this jump. Priceless!

I didn't have the courage to try it myself but several of my visitors have been up and some went more than once. They all came back enthralled by the experience and listed the day as the highlight of their holiday

I didn't but my son did... ending up with a grin like the Cheshire Cat and wanting to do it again the next day :)
