Let me tell you about the adventure that we had some time ago. I love adrenalin while Marta not so much, but I make her do things with me. It’s good for her to exit her comfort zone and to share the adventures with me. Firstly, I need to tell you that when we were in Amsterdam (back in April) there was a Ferris Wheel and we went on it- that was the first time I found out that Marta isn’t a fan of heights. However, I decided for both her and my mum that zip-lining down the hill would be a great idea.
We embarked on the field trip at the beginning of June, the new zip-lining opened in Lika which is apparently the biggest in European Union. Therefore, we had to go and try it out. It took us around 2 hours from Zagreb to get to the place since you can’t really take the highway, but the scenery is nice and I don’t mind the drive since I am not the one driving (no driving license).
Finally, we got there and I saw panic in both of their eyes. However, I still made them put the suits on, the helmets, and get into the truck that takes you up the hill where the zip-lining starts. The drive uphill was, in my opinion, scarier (the driver had the need for speed and the road isn’t too good) than the actual Flying.
There were a few guys in front of us, so we got to see how it is done which was important for us because we didn’t really read the instructions that we had to sign. My mum started panicking and Marta wasn’t feeling it either. They strap you on, but you are in a lying position looking downwards, so that you don’t only see, but actually feel how high it is before you start flying. It is around 2km long and you can reach the speed of 120km/h, in conclusion it is long and fast. However, the flying takes around 2 minutes. I made my mum go first because I knew that if we let her go last, she would return with the truck. Marta went second because I knew she wouldn’t have the balls to go last. I went last and had no one to entertain me while being strapped on, but I didn’t mind it that much. When I finished, I honestly expected my mum to start yelling at me and cursing for making her do it. However, she was thrilled and they both loved it.
They immediately wanted to book another time to go again. On the way back, we stopped at a restaurant to eat something, but I think we should have waited to get home because the food wasn’t the best.
In conclusion, it was short and sweet and I would recommend it to everyone that likes adrenaline and also to the people who don’t, but like adventures. We had a blast and we did go again, it was even better. The company that you take with yourself to do “stupid shit” like that is what matters the most. And this is the whole story of our adventure.
The point is that it doesn’t matter where you are, but who you are with and there is always something different you can try out wherever you are.
The zip line place is called Pazi Medo and I would recommend it to everyone.
Until next time,
