MERRY CHRISTMAS!I’m back in Singapore from my Tasmanian holiday, but I have so many pictures, I’m going to continue blogging about Tasmania anyway. Plus I’m still suffering from post-holiday blues, so let me relive my holiday vicariously through my posts. 🙁
So this is the 5th post about my Tasmania trip, and this time, my mom and I visit the Tahune Airwalk. I’m really afraid of heights, so I have no idea what overcame me when I told my mom I want to go to the airwalk. It was an hour’s drive from the city, and the roads were really curvy and steep, so do be careful when driving there! On the way to the airwalk, you can actually set camp beside the rivers and have a picnic or campfire. If you see the picture below, I really felt like I was in a Yogi-Bear cartoon, what with all the wooden huts and benches and designated areas for camping.
We hiked for about 15 minutes to the airwalk and this is what you’re basically walking on throughout the trail. I did not look down at all throughout my walk, I think that’s the trick to overcoming tree top walks, DO NOT – in any circumstance, look down, it will just heighten your paranoia.
This is the head of my mom you see below. I didn’t dare go all the way to the edge, so I stayed where I was and photographed her. I kept telling her to move to the left hand corner so I can see more of her body, but she was so terrified. She kept shouting “NO! You’re so mean Andrea!” when I kept telling her to shift a little to the left. I guess the glass panel coupled with the wobbling of the structure made her too afraid of to take another step.
It was really windy, as you can see:
Btw, Singapore has our very own tree top walk too! You have to walk a distance, but it’s pretty worth it! You should give it a try if you have the time (:Oh yes, and in this post, I’m wearing a Uniqlo white tank top, The Editor’s Market denim vest, Levi’s Jeans and Nike sports shoes. I felt like I was part of the werewolf clain from Twilight (in human form) in this outfit!
