Skydiving on the Space Coast of Florida

October 12, 2009

By: Miguel Villamil

If you haven’t tried skydiving, trust me, you don’t know what you are missing. It’s safer than swimming with sharks but more dangerous than watching TV and one of the best ways to make sure you are living life to the fullest. I highly recommend it for anyone, even George Bush senior did it for his 80th birthday. Skydive Space Center is where I did my first tandem jump. Tandem Skydiving is skydiving connected to an instructor though a harness, the skydivers/instructors at skydive space center all have more than 15,000 jumps under their belt so you can feel safe with them. The people at skydive space center provide everything needed to jump out of an airplane and land safe and sound all you need to do is show up. They offer tandem and single jumps at both of their locations one being in Titusville and the other in Jacksonville Florida. Read the rest of this entry »

Orlando has tons of fun and excitement, so some of you might envy Kyle and Stacy but I’m not sure I do. I know what it is like to go on vacation with a “Vacation Nazi.” Whether you like to go at a slower pace or faster pace, like Kyle and Stacey it’s all good as long as you are having fun. And since there is so much to see in Orlando I guess it wouldn’t hurt to have a tight schedule.
