Empire State Building v Rockefeller Center (re)

You're in New York City, you'll probably only visit one of the two towers to see a 360- degree city view of Manhattan. But which building do you choose? The Empire State or Rockefeller Center? Here are my thoughts, as I've visited both. Price Rockefeller Center- $34 for adults, $28 for children. The Empire State- Top …

The day we hired a Ford Mustang!

Location: Los Angeles, California, USA. We'd booked tickets to visit Paramount Pictures Studios, booked for Disneyland Resort, and for Knott's Berry Farm Theme Park. We'd plan to visit Hollywood's Hall of Fame, see the visible Hollywood landmark sign, and Malibu's glistening beaches. Then we thought we're in Los Angeles, mum is coming out to visit us for a …

  • Height: 13,000ft Skydive, 60 seconds of free-fall
  • Company: Skydiving Kiwi’s

  • Paperwork: Signing a declaration saying this extreme sport can cause major injuries and in some (very rare) cases.. death. (Never signed one of those before!)

I consider myself to be quite an adrenaline junkie and jumping out of a plane at 13,000ft with a stranger strapped to my back, hoping and praying the $360 dollar parachute I have just paid, whilst reaching full velocity, will open successfully, was definitely a way to fulfil this feeling.

A skydive jump has always been on my bucket list and jumping in New Zealand was the perfect location. From a birds eye view perspective the sight was just incredible. I was…

AJ Hackett’s Ledge Swing

Check out my ledge swing, 400metres above Queenstown, South Island of New Zealand!

Travelling Enthusiast, Trying Life at Home

Fancy a swing 400metres out above Queenstown from the top of the Gondola ride, in the south island of New Zealand?

Fancy pulling the self-release cord yourself? The fate is in your hands..

Fancy a rope style swing, feeling the sensation of flying?

Then I recommend visiting Queenstown and going on AJ Hackett’s Ledge Swing! You won’t regret it.

Queenstown is a beautiful area in the South-West corner of New Zealand, surrounded by mountains and built around Lake Wakatipu. Full of activities, ski mountains and adrenaline sensations. If you’re a daredevil then head to this town and challenge your fears with a bungy, a swing, skydive, luge rides, paragliding, jet boating, zip line adventures and more.

I bought myself the photo and video package at the end of my swing, as the footage is incredible. The views of Queenstown look spectacular and my scream whilst swinging is quite a sound to listen to!…
