Conquering Fear

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

I would love to think that I am a daring person but I'm not. I'm not a scaredy cat and I found that I can be courageous when needed but I wouldn't be someone to jump off airplanes or go bungee jumping. I like roller coasters but don't know if I would try the one where your legs are hanging with nothing under you.

Anyway, I wrote a few posts ago that we wanted to try the zipline when we were in Coron but Via, who badly wanted to try it, was not allowed. She's too small. I kinda breathed a sigh of relief that I would not have to get on that thing. But then we went to Tagaytay and saw another zipline. This time Via can go on it, on Daddy's back. I went and paid for it, climbed up the stairs and all the while there's a debate going on in my head that went like, I don't want to go....but you're the one who asked if they wanted to try it.....yes, but I didn't think Via would be allowed....well they're looking forward to it.....but it's so high and those trees and rocks below won't let us live if we fall.....do you want to look chicken in Via's and P's eyes.......no, but..but...... By this time, I was already bundled and strapped and had no choice. A moment later we were pushed out into space. There's no turning back.

It went rather quickly. The zip takes all of 20 seconds. Then we were across . We went back by Cable Car.

Boy, am I glad I didn't back out. It was a great feeling after to know I was afraid but conquered my fear.

I want to try that adventure too. I am quite afraid of heights too.

Mylene September 13, 2012 at 7:26 AM  

Congratulations!

My eldest daughter also wanted try the E.A.T Danao zipline with her dad last year. But it was hubby who didn't agree :)

I haven't tried it though.

How exciting... U are brave, I honestly don't know if I've be able to get up there myself! Haha!

Mommy Maye September 13, 2012 at 9:32 PM  

Wow, your little girl is super brave too. I like the zipline photos much. Para syang nakasakay kay superman.

Thanks Mommy Maye

It's funny how the little ones are fearless and it's the adults that are afraid :)

Jellybelly,  September 14, 2012 at 12:51 AM  

They say don't look down. It works :)

Spanish Pinay September 14, 2012 at 4:42 AM  

Oh boy, congratulations on conquering your fears! I on the other hand is not the bravest girl out there but yes, zipline is one of the things I want to try :) I love roller coasters too by the way. But then with age, I think I'd get dizzy a lot easier now. But when I was younger (I sound like a very old woman), I would try all those daring rides!

Great shots! Even your daughter was smiling away while she was at the back of her dad... it was worth the try, I'm sure :)

anney September 14, 2012 at 7:21 AM  

Looks fun! First time ko mag zipline sobrang takot ako talaga!

verna,  September 14, 2012 at 11:38 AM  

That's on my bucket list! :)
I'm dying to try that. Haha.
But whoa! Your Via's position was pretty scary. But yeah, I don't think they would allow that if that wasn't safe in the first place.

aby September 14, 2012 at 9:56 PM  

wow. looks fun.. i like zipline! but haven't tried it yet..

Dominique@Dominique's Desk September 14, 2012 at 11:25 PM  

Good on you to overcome your fear of heights. I too would like to try a zipline. It looks so fun.

Jellybelly,  September 15, 2012 at 2:50 AM  

They asked me if Via will be on my back or Daddy's back. I said Daddy's back. He's stronger that me in case....you know. She's pretty secure with the harness though.

Jellybelly,  September 15, 2012 at 2:52 AM  

We do become less daring as we age :)

Olga September 15, 2012 at 4:43 AM  

Wow!!! This looks like fun. I want to try the zipline also but the kids are still to little. I'm going to tell hubby to take us to Tagaytay so we can try the zip at Res Inn also. :D

Rika Jane September 15, 2012 at 7:33 AM  

OMG! This looks fun! You're so brave and of course di rin papahuli your little girl who's braver! Hahaha!

Wanna try this sometime in the future. Gee I have a horrible fear of heights pa naman! To think bungee and sky diving is in my bucketlist! I guess this activity will do me good. ;)

Gerilen September 15, 2012 at 8:25 AM  

there is this chance in bacolod to do the zip line, they did, i didnt because i was expecting.. i would really try this out! because one of my wishful thinking is to fly...

Rosemarie- Pinay Singlemom September 15, 2012 at 5:40 PM  

wow! the little one is really enjoying while riding at her papa's back, I hope to try this with the little one, one of these days..

January September 15, 2012 at 8:48 PM  

Cool! I hope to bring my son on a zipline ride when he's old enough..:)

Gaylee September 15, 2012 at 9:33 PM  

Tried zipline once in Boracay but I sure don't want to repeat that one.....my brothers loved it though and wanted to it over and over again. Your cable car ride looks fun ;0

Krizza September 16, 2012 at 5:10 AM  

Glad that u made it! I also have fear of heights. Normally, I wouldn't dare to try yung mga ganyang adventurous activities. Di ko ata talaga kaya eh. :)

jenifer balatico September 16, 2012 at 11:25 PM  

I really want to try zip line! But I do have fear of heights T_T hope to overcome my fear too..

kat September 17, 2012 at 1:50 AM  

That is quite a good rate. Zip lines here are pretty expensive. My kuripot self refuses to give in. :D

Khim September 17, 2012 at 4:52 AM  

I love to try ziplines! I'm not afraid of heights, but I'm do have little fear of falling. :D

anygen September 17, 2012 at 12:02 PM  

Aja, I want to conquer my fear in hights too... Awesome you conquered your fear. Nice shots.

Nina@Babbling Little Booties September 17, 2012 at 5:00 PM  

That's really scary...
I have never tried zip line experience.

Mom Michelle September 17, 2012 at 10:24 PM  

You should congratulate yourself for conquering your fear and enjoying the ride with your daughter. We had the chance to go to Tagaytay zipline also. My two older kids enjoyed it so much. I wish I'd joined but I had the smaller ones to look after to at that time. Next time hopefully :-)

RonLeyba@FilipinoFoodsRecipes.com September 19, 2012 at 9:13 AM  

Great experience. Me and my daughter tried it as well, above the sea.

tyna quimpo September 19, 2012 at 10:53 PM  

OMG this looks so exciting. I'll definitely drag my family to Tagaytay to do just that.

carinamodella September 20, 2012 at 11:33 PM  

We've also tried it before and it is a super fun ride.

Jessel October 3, 2012 at 5:48 PM  

Exhilarating! I've done rappelling and I really want to try this one too. Anyways, your little girl is so brave riding on his daddy's back.:)

promding chamimay October 17, 2012 at 12:46 AM

Jellybelly,  October 18, 2012 at 1:15 AM  

The Twerp is 3 and a half. She loved it! :)

Pinay Ricamora October 20, 2012 at 4:31 AM  

It never entered my mind to want to try it... but this is the first time I saw a child at the back of the daddy!

Pinay Ricamora October 20, 2012 at 4:32 AM  

It never entered my mind to want to try it... but this is the first time I saw a child at the back of the daddy with the superman position! I only take pictures of my son doing the zipline and all the extreme rides!

max October 21, 2012 at 2:23 PM
