A little known fact about me. I love waterparks. As in I really, really, really love waterparks. It's a bit like how kids love...well, waterparks. (Whilst living in Phuket in late 2012 we went to this one a total of three times in two months!) So when I went to Atlantis, The Palm for the new year, I hoped that there would be enough time to explore the waterpark. There was... just about. As soon as I heard the screams coming from the Leap of Faith and saw the bodies whizzing down it's almost vertical drop, I knew I wanted to have a go. In the end, I went on it twice; it's that good! Here's the video I took using my GoPro (featuring a facial expression that is arguably scarier than the water slide itself!)
And don't for a second think I wasn't a little scared. My photographer companion Mirco took this photo of me when I did it the first time and this seems to suggest I wasn't 100% relaxed.Tomorrow you can see a videos and pics of me feeding the rays at Aquaventura!
