My life is hectic! From catching an early flight from O.R Tambo airport to King Shaka airport, I have a thing where I'm always late for my flights. This time I was early, because I had no cash to book another flight. I get to Durban beautiful weather and I'm wearing black velvet tights and a black light jacket its scorching in Durban, now we rushing to surprise kids with some donuts. They were excited to see me.
Next stop is at the uShaka Marine, I'm told I have to shark cage dive. The shock on my face.... Thought they were joking, I mean who would wanna be swimming with sharks and other specie's you find in the water tank. I was so scared, I couldn't breath, after couple of minutes manage to contain myself and I did it. I was so proud of myself.
Thought I was done for the day. BUT, next stop was at the Moses Mabhida stadium at the Big rush big swing which it was officially named the world’s tallest swing by the Guinness Book of Records! Its similar to bungee jumping. First obstacle for me was the 390 stairs I had take before getting to the top where I would do the jump. I'm wearing full body harness which was heavy, imagine climbing the 390 stairs with heavy equipment on you. By the time I got to the top I was extremely exhausted. The guys instructing me what to do, but I was not listening at these guys, I was praying and talking to my Gods haha. I felt like going back and not doing the jump I was scared. The guys counted 3 2 1 and I jumped holding tight to that rope. It was a free jump, it felt like i was not attached to anything for 30 seconds, it was dead silence, I really thought I was on my way to heaven, I'm thinking why I'm I not hearing any commotion, not feeling the body harness on me, after 30 seconds I then felt everything, the ropes etc.
I open my eyes and I'm swinging in the air and guess who I see at the stadium training, the whole team of Kaizer Chiefs and I'm yelling Siphiwe Tshabalala he waved back at me!
The whole experience was incredible, two adventurous activities ticked off my bucket list!
