Go Ape – Temple Newsam

When I tell people I’m scared of heights they say “But you did a sky dive!” and they’re right, I did, from 15, 000 feet. I’m scared of heights, still! Throwing myself out of a plane, strapped to a random guy, did not cure my fear. My fear is actually worse when I’m closer to the ground. At 15, 000 feet you don’t comprehend how high you are.
