It’s not every day you find yourself plummeting to the ground from 13,000 feet in the air at over 120mph.
While some do it as a regular sport, most of us dare to jump out of a plane for bragging rights. However, there is a common denominator – submission.
What makes skydivers brave is the courage to surrender, not the adrenalin rush. We just don’t admit it but letting go is really one of the most satisfying feelings.
If you are ready to trust the process and throw away whatever is burdening you right now, here are the top 5 spots for skydiving in the Philippines:
