Jump #237: My FIRST cutaway.
20+ Singaporean skydivers invade the sleepy town of Jurien Bay in March 2017. A very humbling experience for me, flying with pro flyers, and in challenging wind conditions. A good wake up call to my 100 jump wonder-ness.
Kind of a tandem factory, but also the only full-time DZ in Southeast Asia (unless you have more than 500 jumps), so you’ll still find fun jumpers here. H8ers gonna h8, but there are loads all day, and it’s less than an hour’s drive from Bangkok. Also, USD1 beers, so who’s complaining?!
Since it’s Mothers’ Day here is the long delayed trip report of my visit to Hakone with Mummy dearest back in 2015. As you know I dislike this sort of typical tourist itinerary, but it is a good place to bring the old folks and first-timers to Japan.
For the jaded tourist- A good mix of culture and cafe-hopping in an uncrowded area of Tokyo.
Did you know that you can send your bulky luggage within Japan and enjoy a hassle-free journey on public transport? I use it most often to send my snowboard bag to and from the airport. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of this magical Japanese invention.
A last minute trip to deliver my rig to the buyer, so 顺便跳一跳 😉 Having just come back from Dubai and Perth, jumping in Thailand was triply sweet- cheap beer trumps all.
