Feeling Freaked Out When Up High and Totally Safe 

I’m having lunch in the Sky Tower in Auckland,  and boy is this an experience.

a city with many tall buildings

While I know I’m completely safe,  my body is not so sure.   I tried stepping into the glass floor on the tower and immediately had an adrenaline rush.

I cannot express how much my heart is still racing,  even looking at that photo.

But I’m so glad I did this.  Looking down,  as scary as it was,  was ridiculously cool.

Having lunch in a revolving restaurant may sound cheesy,  but it’s been a great experience so far.

I’ll admit,  I’m a little dizzy from spinning (or from the wine)  but this is definitely a thrilling experience.

I did dinner on the Eiffel tower,  but that didn’t spin and didn’t have holes (with glass of course)  on the floors.

I’m also trying out cell phone blogging,  so I apologize if anything autocorrected. It’s just really relaxing blogging from here and watching the view.

  1. You made me think of the CN tower in Toronto. People would stand just off the edge maybe taking a baby step onto the floor and then back off. Some people would really freak out if you jumped up and down.
