Describe an expensive activity that you enjoy doing occasionally
You should say
- What it is
- Who do you do it with
- Why is it expensive
- And explain how you feel about it
I would love to talk about an expensive activity that I enjoy a lot and its tandem skydiving. I am crazy about this activity. If you love to do daring things, you would love it too.
It is an exciting sport. Skydiving is usually done from an airplane. Basically, a person jumps from the plane with a parachute. Typically skydives are carried out from around 4,000m (or 12,500ft). The person gets almost 40 to 50 seconds to enjoy the freefall.
Who do you do it with?
When I did it for the first time, I did it alone. Frankly speaking, I was pretty scared. However, the second and third time, I was fearless. This time I was with my wife. We went to Dubai to do a tandem skydive over the desert.
Why is it expensive?
It is a pretty pricey sport, and I can’t do it regularly. We all know air traveling is pretty expensive compared to road and train traveling. Therefore, we need to book a spot on an airplane. Besides, we get gears such as parachutes and other safety equipment. The price of the ticket also covers the charges of the instructor. They also provide insurance cover. So, one needs to pay approximately 500 USD for a single ticket.
And explain how you feel about it?
When I do skydiving, I feel on top of the world. I love doing courageous things. I get excited when I go to perform this activity. Last time before jumping from the plane, my brain was struck, but I was super excited. When my parachute opened, I started enjoying the freefall. It happens so fast that it is hard to explain. On average, a person falls 200 feet per second during a skydive.
