    Another thrill: One. More. Time.
    I had just gone for the world's tallest certified Swing... I jumped into a massive stadium in South Africa (see the previous trail) And now teehee I'm going flying on the LONGEST ZIPLINE. I know this is insane but I'm still scared and I have more to prove to myself :)))

    Specifications of the Zip
    You can read all of it here, the details. It's properly a Guinness certified venue and a safe zipline. They even give us a certificate of we successfully complete the zipline without being a pussy.

    Delightful drives with eye candy
    The route up to the top at fgt assembling point was a beautiful drive. A long road full of wide curved entrailed a rocky terrain around boulders and sand hills. Multiple Ferraris, Maseratis, Lamborghinis and Porsches whizzed by. You know how UAE likes it's cars: smooth ;)

    The launching deck
    A platform completely made of glass stood at the edge of the hill. We had come to the top. This is where it all starts. Its a beautiful stage made like a tavern and is quite a spectacular sight

    The landscapeThat I will barge into
    See those rocks, the landscape and the beautiful rocky hills? The curvy roads? I was to go plummeting into ALL OF IT slingshotting on a rope at 130kmph. This was going to be one epic (and terrifying) flight bare body.

    Look closely how others do it.
    While I was getting my harness strapped on, I looked at the people on the launching deck right before me. Woah, that was a lot of ropes. And a lot of guts I mumbled to myself.

    The moment of truth.
    With my goPro strapped to my head, I was primed onto the cloth slab myself. My heart pounded and chest tightened. I was breathing heavy while staring into the vast open canyon like landscape. I will be shooting down 2.7 Kms at 130 kmph ..... On a rope.

    Ready. Set. LAUNCH!
    I shoot past the point as soon as I'm released. If I'm honest with you my eyes were shit right for the first 10 seconds because i thought I was falling right out of my fucking body onto the road. "I'm about to die."- Oh shut up, stop being a pussy

    It's tough but keep your eyes open
    Well, after mustering up my courage and not being a twat, I finally opened my eyes as I screamed through the wind. My shouts were lost in the searing winds that blew harsh on my face and the cam picked it up as 'ambient noise'. 100 kmph - Relative distance makes it appear slow.

    The Jebel Jais region of the UAE lay in front of me. I felt like I was fangerously. Close to certain points on the road nuts it's all an illusion. This thrill was terrifying and spectacular at the same time.

    Came in like spiderman and clicked
    I had a cam taking shots of the ground at different interavals, and frankly speaking the photos were terrible because they were blurry and not focuses on anything significant. I did however get this amazing shot of a parking lot. I thought I was going to blast into it

    It's over. I did it
    When I finally got off the platform at the end point, I saw a person after me get down to see the same thing from a different point of view. My heart beat was still high. But I'm through. I have done it. ...where's that certificate I'm supposed to get now?

    A speed demon.
    A sheikh heir, or some member of royalty had come to taste the thrill with his modified Ferrari 488 GTB. A rare edition for Ferrari itself, I politely asked the owner for a photo and it came out great. At one point I sped on the zipline as fast as this black beauty :)

    A fitting conclusion.
    As I look back at the photos I ponder on all I've done here. And all I overcome. I have felt the wind graze against me as I leapt into the open. It's all about fighting your inner fears and letting yourself open. Believe in yourself and you too, shall overcome.
