Boracay - Cliff Jumping

去年第一次到長灘島時,由於颱風才剛離開不久,逗留期間天氣很不穩定,明明前一刻晴空萬里,下一秒就下起傾盤大雨,大雨隔幾個小時一直的下,偶爾還有強風吹過,於是計劃中想要嘗試的Cliff jumping基於安全關係,一直無法成行,成為旅程一個小小的遺憾。
2014年再臨長灘島,有別於上次糟糕的天氣,這次天空一直放晴,只是偶爾下幾場驟雨,幸運地終於有機會一嚐cliff jumping。

其實Cliff jumping感覺就像奧運的十米高台,不過我們站的只是一塊簡陋的木板,下方也不是泳池,而是一片廣闊的海洋。
之前在網路上看別人一直說很害怕,只敢挑戰三五七米的高度,免不少在心中嗤笑他們的膽小。雖然我也沒跳過,但根據很久以前在outward bound在碼頭跳海的經驗,認為才十米的高度實在沒什麼可怕,相信換成自己定會亳不猶豫地直接跳下去,甚至滿有信心可以跳個幾次也毫不畏懼。
然後,我發現自己錯了。

一直以為自己是個滿大膽的女生,很多緊張刺激的機動遊戲也可以面不改容地挑戰,漸漸地我幾乎忘了自己畏高的事實。
直到踏上跳板的一刻。
認真,我真的怕得要命。
實在太久不曾從高處俯視下方,站在跳板上看著在下方蕩漾著的碧綠的海水,我心頭真的涼了半截,感覺自己的心跳快要停止。
那種搖搖欲墜,不知道下一秒將要發生什麼事的感覺讓我瞬間腳軟,實在沒有跳下去的勇氣⋯
雖然最後我還是壓下恐懼,咬緊牙關跳了,甚至還挑戰了三次,但要是你問我害不害怕的話,我還是會說我怕得要命。
直到現在,每當我回想自己站在跳板上的瞬間,我還是覺得害怕。
可是,再有機會的話,我想我還是會再跳一次,希望終有一天能克服這份恐懼。

I’m afraid of whales and dinosaurs. No, I’m not kidding. And no, I’m not just trying to get your attention. I don’t even like the dinosaurs made of bones at museum exhibits. 447 more words
