Before today I am able to say that I have been/rode/visited all of the above items on the list EXCEPT 1.
After today I am able to say that I have been/rode/visited ALL OF THE ABOVE! Today I conquered the longest zip line in the world!
Ras al Khaimah is 1 of the 7 emirates in the UAE. Ras al Khaimah is beautiful and mountainous. It is also the most northern emirate.
Even though our main adventure was the zip line getting to the Welcome Center was an adventure as well. We had to drive up winding, curvy, and steep inclines. We stopped a few times to take pictures. The view was breathtaking.
After about 30 minutes of uphill driving we finally made it to the Parking Area. We had to park, check in, and then take a shuttle up to the Welcome Center.
In the Welcome Center, we were greeted at the door. We were briefed on the process. After checking in and having my forms verified I was sent to have the gear put on. My thoughts at that moment, "I cannot believe I'm about to do this!" The staff was so courteous and that helped put my mind at ease. However a certain someone who shall remain nameless and who was not participating in the adventure kept saying, "Oh bruh! Get your mind right!" Definitely.Not.Helpful.
After everyone that would be zip lining was properly suited up we hopped in another shuttle and we were taken up to the point where the zip line would begin. We were 1680 meters above sea level. I'd say that was pretty high. We were briefed on what to do and what not to do. They told us they would have to weigh us just for the purpose of balancing everything out.
*Insert eye roll here*
Once it was my turn I told them to whisper my weight. I didn't need everyone knowing that I had betrayed my workout and meal planning. As I was getting strapped in and suited up I began to think about why I was even up here.
I told myself 4 years ago that every August 2 I was going to do something adventurous, something to make Mom proud, something that says I'm DOING LIFE BIG! Once my Mom left this Earth it really made my eyes open. Tomorrow is not promised and I need to live every day like it's my last. So, every August 2 I do something that exemplifies that!
August 2, 2018 I conquered the longest zip line in the world! See the video below for proof. #DoLifeBig #DoingItForMommy #TryingToMakeHerProud #MyForeverBestFriend #MissHerSoMuch #LottieJanePorterFetterson
