Hi Guys! I have one more post about Vegas! This is all about our final night! Friday we spent all day walking around looking at everything! There was a lot more people out on Friday, which made it more difficult to get down the street. But, Friday night was the best part of the whole trip. Jeremy got me tickets to Britney Spears!! I seriously can’t even put into words how excited I was! I have loved her since she came out, and have always wanted to see her. more “One More Time”

This is my final post over our Jamaica trip. But, we extended our vacation and went to Los Angeles. I will post about that trip in my next posts.
But first, I want to share our excursion experience in Ocho Rios with you.
If you are ever in Jamaica, I would highly recommend that you go to Dunn’s River Falls. That place is incredible! We went there a few years ago, and we thought about going back. But, we decided that we wanted to do something we had never done. Hubby has always wanted to go ziplining. I have no idea why, because he is scared of heights. I on the other hand, am TERRIFIED of heights. But, this is what we decided to do.
So, on Friday of our trip, we went to the Mystic Mountain.
When we got there it was beautiful! It was in the middle of the jungle.
I was already nervous about the zip lining, but when we got there we found out that we had to ride a chair lift 700 feet up a mountain. We got on it, and I started to panic a little! We were so high up, we were in the tops of the trees. The view of the ocean was gorgeous, but the ride was terrifying! The chair went pretty slow, and when it would reach each tower, it would start shaking. And, it started to rain on us. We were up so high, you couldn’t even see the ground! I do not ever want to do that again! (But I had to in order to get back down) The ride up the mountain took about 20 minutes. When we reached the top, I wanted to kiss the ground!
We got off and we to ride the bobsled. It was like a roller coaster, but you could control how fast or slow you went. The girl that strapped us in told us, “The faster you go, the safer you’ll be.” We rode with our cars hooked together because I’m a chicken. We went pretty fast, and it was really fun! It was a quick, and then we had to ride back up to where we started. This was just like a roller coaster going up a hill, but it went faster.
After the bobsled, we visited the hummingbird garden. Then we went and got strapped into our harnesses so we could do the zip lines.
We met our guides, and they were hilarious! They were really nice to me since they knew I was scared. They joked around with us, and kept calling me queenie. Hubby went first on the first line. I was impressed! I went next, and it was AWESOME! I loved every second of it! We went on four lines, and then we got to a platform where you had to drop straight down. The guides made me go first. I kept telling them I didn’t want to, but they said if I didn’t, I wouldn’t want to go at all. So, I went and they lowered me really slowly to the bottom. After I went, one of the ladies with us said she wanted to go because it didn’t look so bad. She got up there and they just dropped her to the bottom. I was so glad they didn’t do that with me. Then we got to walk across a really long rope bridge to the last line.
Once we went across that line we were half way down the mountain. They took our harnesses and we had to get on the chair lift to go the rest of the way down.
I had a blast, and I would love to do this again! I was really proud of us for facing our fears, and I loved that we did it together.
Have you ever faced a fear?
