Thanks to Rotorua Helipro, we were off to experience their Lakes tour.
We turned up and were told they needed to postpone the ride until later as it was quite windy... I was quite happy at that point to blame the weather and not worry about it! But no, Miss K insisted we return later.
So back we go a few hours later.... they pull out the helicopter and the nerves kick in... I say to Miss K.... eeek! it looks so tiny!!! (I am very much a BIG PLANE type of girl!)
But.... I needn't have worried... they were just pulling out that helicopter (using the little ride on) so they could get the OTHER helicopter out for us!
So I was shaking and praying, my daughter was jumping up and down with excitement....I was tempted to ask for my parachute...but didn't want to appear rude.
Yes the scenery was amazing, yes the sheep looked like little grains of rice, scattered over the hills, yes I aged about 10 years in 20 minutes.....and no, I didn't lose my lunch.
Our pilot was awesome, and I kind of figured he wanted to survive the ride too.... so I trusted him to get us back safely.
..... but its all just part of the experience when you are a dare devil like me... (not!! lol)
