My First Time Being So High In The Sky!

полет1

Hey, world! It’s Lora.

Today’s post is dedicated to something very exciting which happened to me recently, so be prepared for a little story time now. 🙂

Some of you may know from my last summer’s post (Summer Adventures Chapter 1 – Touching The Sky) that my grandpa (George Obretenov) is a pilot and a retired parachutist. He has 8 world records in skydiving. He was a coach of the Bulgarian national skydiving team and he has more than 4 500 jumps. I am a proud granddaughter! ❤

So last week, we went to the airport where he works. There was going to be a training for some parachutists who were preparing to jump. Grandpa managed to talk with the pilot who agreed to take me on the plane with them!

Imagine how excited I was! First, because I’ve never flown on such a big plane (I’ve only been in smaller ones). Second, I have never seen how parachutists jump from above (I’ve always watched them from the ground). And third, because I’ve never been so high in the sky – 3 000 m!

This was definitely an unforgettable experience and I’ll remember the feeling I had when I was up there forever. I felt butterflies in my stomach and I was a little bit nervous… but also… FREE! For the first time in a while, I could think clearly and see the world from a different spectrum with my eyes wide open.

When we got above the clouds, I imagined the airplane as one big bird with its wings spread in the air. It felt like we were on top of the world. I took a deep breath and enjoyed the moment…

I even captured the parachutists waiting for their jump… I wonder what were they feeling?

I’m grateful for this once-in-a-life-time opportunity. Being able to experience all of this was all I could ask for… ❤

Summer Adventures Chapter 1 – Touching The Sky

Hey,world! ❤ It’s Lora. You know what? I’m starting a new kind of blog posts – Summer Adventures. I do a lot of fun activities in summer and I want to share them all with you. So yesterday… I FLEW ON A PLANE!! My grandpa (George Obretenov) is a pilot and a retired parachutist. He has 8 world records in skydiving. He was a coach of the national skydiving team and he has more than 4 500 jumps. In summer, he often takes me and my brother on short sky trips like the one yesterday. I love being high in the clouds! I haven’t been on a plane for a long time and the experience was different now… when I’m older. I can say that it was even more interesting! We flew over the town of Montana and saw the river that flows across it, the dam and the stadium. It was time well spent with my grandpa…those precious moments in the sky are just unforgettable.

Grandpa is my hero… ❤
