Photo Challenge: Careful

Friday – I thought you’d never arrive! It’s been a stressful week at work, but the weekend is almost here! Today we’re all dressed up for Halloween at work and like every year my friends and I have made a group costume. Stay tuned tomorrow for a look at what I dressed up as and how I put it together!

Like every Friday, I’m sharing with you my response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge. This week’s challenge was “Careful” and I decided to throw it way back. Well, not that far back but I think 6 years ago, maybe?

6 or so years ago, I went on vacation to Mexico (Riviera Maya to be exact) with some friends. Our all-inclusive resort had this trapeze attraction for guests to try out and I was all for it. It was so much fun, but obviously you have to be careful when you’re on something like a trapeze! In hindsight, it probably wasn’t the safest trapeze ever to go on seeing as how we were given very few instructions and the staff running it looked like foreign college kids who were working at the resort for the summer. But nonetheless it was a really fun experience and myself and 1 other friend were the only ones of our group to brave it.

Since then I have gone on a real trapeze lesson in New York City at a trapeze school, which was both exhilarating and scary. That trapeze was way higher and we even had to do passes (where one of the professionals would swing from the other side and we had to let go of our bar and grab onto his hands!). I was in a small group of 6 or so for the lesson that day and Uma Thurman and her kids were among them. No big deal.

Anyway, back to the picture – after taking a real trapeze lesson and comparing it to what I did in Mexico, I sure am glad I was careful!
