Everyone has desires in life. Whether it is to go visit an exotic place or meet a famous actor, we all have that amazing experience we want to accomplish. For me, my desire was accomplished the past January. I always wanted to bungee jump, feel the sensation of jumping into the void. I have to admit it is not an easy decision to take a step and fly away into the ground. I went to Costa Rica with my friends on vacation the past January. We all decide before the trip to bungee jump since there are various exotic places to jump at Costa Rica. It was around 3 p.m. and we got to Puente Viejo del Colorado, Naranjo, Costa Rica where we saw the bridge that was 265ft high! After signing the contract, it was time to gear up. I decided to go last because I wanted to watch everybody jump and get a sense of what it would feel like. When my turn came, I felt good but nervous. I stepped into the platform and walked over the end. Once I was at the end of the platform I couldn't take the next step... Jump into the void. It is a hard decision just as when you can't decide which ice cream flavor to pick. I closed my eyes and made the decision to take the risk and jump. It took me about 8 minutes to make the decision to jump. As soon as I started falling, I opened eyes and saw the amazing view of green trees around me. I have no exactly words to explain the amazing sensation. It literally feels as if you were flying... I know we don't know how to fly that's why can't explain it. It is an awesome experience which I would encourage anyone who likes extreme sports to try it. Remember to take precautions and do everything the experts tell you. Bungee jumping, great way to overcome your fears and be aware of what you are capable of doing.
