Zip-Lining Lake Sebu, Philippines.

 

The greatest mistake I ever made.

I love adventure. Those who know me or have traveled with me know that I am up for anything. SCUBA, Sky Diving, Spelunking … you name it. So when I was approached with the possibility to go zip-lining in the Lake Sebu region of the Philippines, I said sure.

Dear God what a mistake.

I had never been so afraid in my life. 7 lines, the highest in Asia, 300 meters above sea level, extending over 750 meters, this was absolutely horrifying. The heigh is daunting, the length is daunting, but what is truly frightening is that its basically a rusty ol’ line, strung together by a bamboo platform, and you are being held up by a vest.

Im 220 lbs of Italian beef. That’s what made it real scary. I immediately went on a diet afterwards, and seeing I lost at least 5 lbs in fecal matter and fear-sweat on the ride, I considered it a good jump start.
