I believe in everyone’s heart, lives a monster! It normally comes out to breathe fresh air when we do get out from our comfort zone and into the ‘jungle’ with fresh air but without knowing everything. My little monster always pushes me to do some crazy things during my solo trips. Only when it’s got feed up completely, I can calm down and go back to normal me. OK, let’s see what adventure impressed me and might inspire you too?


每个人心里都住着一只小怪兽!一个人的旅行,经历一个完全陌生的地方,没有其他人只有自我。这只小怪兽就会跑出来晒晒太阳,呼吸新鲜空气。我的小怪兽绝对是白羊座里的代表,在我最近的几个solo旅程中,总是把我推给一些要命的极限运动。最近它算是玩够了,服服帖帖的也没给我找麻烦,不过想起年头那会,真是刺激到不得不要跟大家来说说。australia, cairns, sky diving

“Sky Diving with a a glimpse of Great Barrier Reef”

Location: Cairns, Australia

Heading to Cairns on my own, I was super excited about those adventure tours posted online. A ‘dive’ from 14,000ft blue-sky with chilled air and crazy wind blowing your hair and face, maybe to catch bird friend one or two, isn’t this a must-try item? I was paired with my coach and dressed on the heavy parachute with his help, nothing special except a bit smelly. The plane with almost 12 people soared to sky without hesitation, while I was lucky to give the last jump and I became the person who could enjoy the whole process of taking off, soaring up, hovering around the white cloud above the oceans with different blue-s.

Moving towards the open-door wouldn’t be that easy for the parachute was tightly equipped and my coach was basically another ‘parachute’ mounted on me at that time… I didn’t have a second hesitation before I was pushed by the back-force and fell into nowhere. Everything just happened too fast and my heart was even not ready to feel the free-fall! We were in that crazy moment for 20-30 seconds around. After the excitement, it came the relaxation to let me enjoy being a ‘bird’. The extended ocean was attached to green and brown land and there are several small snake-crawling canals connecting the rainforest and the river-sea area. Closing to the land, we started our fast twisting for the landing and a soft-landing was followed.

“大堡礁360度横竖来看”

地点:凯恩斯,澳大利亚

还没从悉尼出发去凯恩斯,我就兴奋到不行(小怪兽已经跑出来了),全因为网上查到好多关于凯恩斯的旅游项目,基本上一大块都是跟玩命有关的。当时立刻浮想联翩,从1万4千尺高空自由坠落,清冷的空气,吹到乱了发型和面容的大风,也许能徒手抓个小鸟?当即便下了决定打雷我也要跳一个!去到跳伞中心的准备室,我的跳伞教练亲自给我穿上厚重的跳伞包,没什么其他的,跟着他的指示就行,不过小小抱怨下,跳伞包那股味道实在不怎么滴。。。载着12人的小飞机一跃而上,我运气好,是最后一个跳伞的,正好给个机会让我裸眼欣赏1万4千尺高空的美景和大家跳出去之前的“小挣扎”。

从飞机最里面挪到机舱口可不容易,全怪当时已经前胸贴后背的跟跳伞包贴上了,外加贴在跳伞包上的跳伞教练,我感觉他是我的第二个跳伞包呢!不知道是我反应迟钝还是太淡定了,给个脸给摄像机,我就出去了,不过跳伞教练也是个急性子,没给我时间想太多。。。照理也该有个40秒左右自由降落的感觉,但这也太快了,瞬间,我的身体就已经适应了,之后的那几分钟绝对是体会做鸟的美感,人优哉游哉的浮在半空中,三三两两的白云就在身边,风是吹的嘴都快变形了,不过眼前的跟自己同一平行线的蓝天,还有眼下的那一大片沉静在海洋里的大堡礁区域,真是美到不行!可以看到湛蓝色的海水分成一条条小河流,有蓝色变成浅棕色,蛇行般融进深棕色的陆地中。快要降落的时候,跳伞教练开始猛的拉动左右两边的控制绳,我们的降落伞也开始快速旋转,急速下降,当然稳稳的安全到达地面是必须的,不然我也不会跟大家在这里扯了。

“Bungy jump in a rainforest storm”

Location: Cairns, Australia

This was my second big jump in the same trip of Cairns. Right before I left for airport and went back to Sydney for New Year Eve, I booked this half-day jump tour. It was a second rainy day after I encounter the raining season in Cairns and the storm came pretty early in the morning. I was shoes-less and climbed up to 50-meter high tower to welcome my first jump in the rainforest.

The jump location was beautiful as it’s naturally around by the rainforest with a pond right beneath the jumping tower. The tower was pretty high than I imagined and it turned out to be truly high when I took quite a long time to climb up and drank a lot of cold wind. To warm up a bit when I was waiting for my turn at the jumping point, the pop music being played there didn’t help to relax my mind indeed. Funny thing was, I still managed to smile ‘naturally’ to the camera-man on the other side of tower and to have a look at the amazing ‘green blanket’ in front of me with a line of white houses at the end of my view. The last half-second I had seen was probably the horrible pond which looked so far away that I could give up this jump. Half-second after, I was in the air already with my weird screaming and jumping heart right there in my throat.

The hardest moment I remembered for the jump was the moment you finally cleared you mind and made your step forward!

“在热带雨林的狂风暴雨中笨猪跳”

地点:凯恩斯,澳大利亚

凯恩斯第二跳,发生在前往机场飞回悉尼倒数2016的那个上午。半日游的行程相当适合喜欢一天里把自己行程排的满满的人,9点多专车pickup,没多久就能到达蹦极基地。不巧的是,凯恩斯的雨季在我到那里的第三天正式开始,狂风暴雨在一大清早就气势汹汹,我还一度担心这半天的行程会被取消,没想到打了电话去问,一切照旧!也就是这个特别的早晨,我完成了人生中第一个光着脚丫子,爬上50米高的跳塔的蹦极之旅。

蹦极基地其实是相当漂亮的地方,位于凯恩斯热带云林之中,停车场下来还要走一点点山路才能到达基地。50米的跳塔果然比想象中的要高得多。。。特别当你在冰冷的雨水中一路向上走,走了半天还没到塔顶那会,心里少不了折腾。尽管塔顶的年轻人开着流行音乐电台,气氛还不错,不过大家的脸上都紧绷绷的。因为脚踝上结结实实的装备上了,我只能小步挪到跳板位置,勉强给对面的摄影师来个笑脸,有那么几秒欣赏了下正对面的一大片绿色雨林,远处已经开始放晴,一半烈阳、一半暴雨的画面美轮美奂的。剩下那最后半秒我斗胆瞄了一眼脚趾下的那个水塘(跳塔正下方是一个天然水塘),心没了一半,“怎么那么高呢!”感觉自己是鸭子上架了,半秒之后便一跃而下,伴随着的是我诡异的尖叫声,缓慢的自由降落过程,足足把自己的心脏给提到喉咙口了,完全feel到自身重量带出来的离心力,建议下次物理老师讲解离心力和重力的时候可以考虑来个实地体验课程,学生们一定此生难忘。。。

如果大家要问蹦极最恐怖的一刻,我担保跳之前做出跳下去那个决心的瞬间会让你最难忘!(或许不要学我,傻愣愣的去看一眼到底有多高,会比较容易些)

“Sky diving for the blues”

Location: Florida Keys, U.S.

After my jump in Cairns, my boyfriend is always jealous and wants to make his first jump somewhere on the earth. To ‘dive’ there is awesome for a plane of only 5 (including Captain) and a bird-view of all Florida Keys in a ‘key chain’.

Where my boyfriend jumped? Skydive Key West


“一次可看到多少蓝色”

地点:弗罗里达群岛,美国

我男朋友得知我在澳洲高空跳伞之后,就一直心有不甘,嫉妒我竟然比他跳的早!这次去美国福罗里达州度假,他便一门心思的找高空跳伞基地,竟然还给他在弗罗里达群岛找到了。他的这次跳伞之旅,同行5人包括机长,1万多千尺高空那个鸟瞰景听说也很壮光,最特别的是可以一览弗罗里达群岛一路向南,一条线串起无数小岛的奇特景色。

“Snorkelling with sharks”

Location: Phi Phi Island, Thailand

We were a group of 5 snorkelers with 1 Australian girl guide and our long tail boat Captain. This is our first stop nearly one hour snorkelling in an aggressive close-to-cliff shallow area. We basically stopped in front of the cliff where the crazy sea waves were pushing us intensively. I tried to keep my body balance while exploring the areas where I felt sometimes cold, sometimes super warm right under the direct sun. More closer to the cliff, it was nothing but sea-bed with light color sand and stones while right underneath the sharp cliff stones, somewhere more like cave line, we saw 1-meter-long shark patrolling. It was so quick like a dark grey shadow, showing up in one second, and disappearing in the next second. We were so excited and tried to chase it in a safe distance while you know we couldn’t make it.


“和鲨鱼一起浮浅”

地点:皮皮岛,泰国

一条长尾船载着我们5个浮浅者,我们的澳大利亚女孩向导,还有我们的船长。一整天的浮浅之旅,我们来到第一个点,位于海中央的巨石悬崖边。船就停靠在不远处的海面上,强劲的海浪把停了发动机的小船推的左右摇摆不停。下了海的我们,更是被不停打过来的海浪随意摆弄,尽力保持身体的平衡,泰国强烈的日照也把深海的一些日照直射点烤的暖暖的。靠近海平面下的悬崖处并没有太多色彩斑斓的海底珊瑚群或者成群结队的鱼类,光秃秃的掩饰垂直插在白色的海床上,一个灰黑色的鱼雷状身影迅速飘过,别看悠哉的只是摆动尾部而已,速度却快的让人想追都追不上,一瞬间就消失在海底的阴影出。大家都看到这条一米长左右的鲨鱼了,好是兴奋!
