#14 Skydiving.

This is something I will do several times in my life but I have not yet done. Soon the summer is here, or you could say that it has already arrived here in Sweden. And the sun shines all day and it's getting warmer and warmer. Tomorrow it will be 24 degrees celcius, yes! And there is currently nothing better to do than to be out in the sun. The sun makes me happy, compared with autumn and the rain ..

# 14 Skydiving! Warm weather and high jump from the top of the free? Would you dare it?



"Parachuting, also known as skydiving, is the action of exiting an aircraft or jumping off a tall structure, and returning to earth with the aid of a parachute. It may or may not involve a certain amount of free-fall, a time during which the parachute has not been deployed and the body gradually accelerates to terminal velocity.
The history of skydiving starts with Andre-Jacques Garnerin who made successful parachute jumps from a hot-air balloon in 1797. The military developed parachuting technology as a way to save aircrews from emergencies aboard balloons and aircraft in flight, later as a way of delivering soldiers to the battlefield. Early competitions date back to the 1930s, and it became an international sport in 1952".
