The Bravest Day of my Life

Hi everyone! Miss me? I have been sooooo busy and I am very sorry for the lack of blogging. Some of Paddy’s family are over visiting us and I have been playing hostess! Busy times eh!

This week I got to do a lot of amazing things and one thing in particular has me so so proud of myself. I completed the Edge Walk at the CN Tower!

For those who do not know, Edge Walk is the CN Tower’s most thrilling adventurous attraction. The experience involves you walking the full circle of the CN Tower on a small ledge a mere 116 stories above the ground!! You have no barriers to keep you in and it’s a completely hands free walk! To be completely honest, I was totally petrified! I literally was shaking! Why go you ask?

Well basically this week I started a new role in our company with the kids tv channels and the team I joined were having a team building day and kindly invited me along. So I thought, new chapter, new experience and it would be a great way to get to know the people I would be working with!

I’m not a fan of heights nor am I dare devil so this was a huge thing for me to do and although I was very nervous on the morning of the walk as soon as I was in the CN Tower, my nerves disappeared.  The staff were incredible, they prepare you, cheer you on, give you lots of encouragement and when you are about to go up, onlookers cheer for you! Whoops filled the air, I felt like I was going into space haha!  It was really exciting! 😀

Once you get to the top of the CN Tower, you are strapped to your harness and given a safety talk. The guide we had was great, by the time I had to walk out onto the ledge I was really nervous again and he helped me through it and in no time, the thrill kicked in! (At first the height and fear made me very light headed)

I don’t want to give away to much of the experience but when you are up there you do challenges where you hang out over the edge, do the Titanic flying pose and even do poses of your own for some once in a life time photographs!

For anyone travelling to Toronto I highly recommend doing this and I say this is as someone who never thought they could or would do it. It has been the highlight of my year and I will never forget it!

Not only that, I can now say that I completed the world’s highest full circle hands free walk and I have the certificate, the pictures and the DVD to prove it! Whooop GO SQUIDGE! 😀

(Please note, photography was not taken by me and the quality is a little poorer than my standard but hey LOOK AT ME GOOOO!!!) 😀
