Меня зовут Татьяна, мне 33 года. Даже не знаю, что рассказать про себя. Я люблю путешествовать, но вот экстрим это не для меня, я трусиха. Катание на водных горках это одно из немногих, что я могу позволить себе на отдыхе, а также рафтинг и погружение, но к сожалению видео с этих событий не сохранились. Хочу представить вам одно из видео нашего отдыха с друзьями, я скатываюсь посередине в черном купальнике. Я понимаю, что для многих это покажется детским развлечением, но для меня это много, поверьте.
Hello, friends! Today I want to share with you snaps of my summer adventure :) Nothing significant, just climbing a tree. In childhood I did it pretty often, even had own wooden house on a tree. It was wonderful time of torn knees and hands, but unforgettable feeling, when you finally reach your destination and enjoying the view from your haven. Most complecate part of this task was taking selfie there, so, as you understand, to climb a tree was only 20% of job and other 80% is to make appropriate selfie (with face not skewed with fear) and do not fall So here what we have
Adrenaline with the family. One nice day to do something different, a ride on a slide but not so simple as others. This one you can do it alone if you want to liberate the emotion of the speed with a fastest down hill without breaks around 1.2 Km.
But in this time, in company of my kids. For the very first time to my little ones who enjoy the speed very sure more than me but with some breaks to avoid any bad emotional experience.
Unfortunately, the video was interrupted by a mistake. After reach the top of the site I didn't keep recording. Sorry for that but I found on YouTube one pretty similar. To be honest, I really enjoy this ride but the whole lap can't be recorded.
So, if you wish to have a look of this experience maybe you can go this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ddDaP9AspA
The whole story began with three friends (Samir, Farid, Murad) traveling to the northern region of Azerbaijan (Sheki, Oguz, Balakan). We have decided that we share the momentum we witnessed, the strange events, the 3-day adventure we live in. The story is real events. The last thing you will be surprised if you read it. We first chose Railroad to go to Sheki, and we got a train ticket for the evening. We had to meet in the evening, but we were in the same place before time, but we could not meet in time, and we were delayed by 2 minutes. Our train had gone away, it was at 21:35, we were in mussels, but we had no idea of turning back. The train, which we were delaying, would stop at Bilajari station for a few minutes. There was still hope to reach the train. We quickly got into the taxi, urgently want us to reach Bilajari station. Upon arriving at the station and falling from the taxi, we ran to the train, hoping to reach the train we were late. But it did not happen again, but we lost minutes for the time. They informed us that you can go to the train and return the ticket at half price. We did not believe we did not want to refund the ticket. But there was nothing left to do. We returned tickets and were sadly sitting at the station seats. We showed up at 22:10 and our phones did not keep silent, but they did not want us to go back to the train, but we were not in the position to tell the delayed train. We thought about how we could go. We went to the bus station and started thinking of going by bus, but it was about 11 o'clock at night and it did not look like this would be. We walked out of the rain when we called the bus station. We went on route 92 from Bilajari. So we went to a busy bus ride in the mud. It was as if everything was in our hands that night, something that would hinder us. We came to this bus station and informed that there was only one bus (Baku-Zagatala-Balakan) and there was no room for it. Do not think that story is over here. What's happening to us now, what's interesting is what's happening. At the bus station we started to see it as a dream we would go on a journey. We were about to return home, and suddenly they called back: come and go to the bus. It may seem like you've been lucky enough at this point. You will eventually decide to hurry). Yeah, that's the bus. Now we have 12 hours, and finally we go to Sheki. We walked for five hours without sleep during the night. The events did not go away within 5 hours. Our driver went wrong on the road and asked us for help to return. We arrived at the bus four o'clock in a dark area and the driver could not return and left us there. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon, we were listening to the terrifying jackals of dark ghosts, the land we did not recognize, and the reason why the driver had gone. We've had these moments in the plain of the desert for about 15 minutes. Finally, the bus came back and we continued on the ride full of these adventures. After 1 hour, at 5 o'clock we reached the entrance door of Sheki city. Now we have to go from the entrance to the city itself, but there is no car to ride on the road because it is 5 in the morning. Yes, 5 o'clock in the morning, we are sleepless and in this case we have to walk about eight miles to the city. We did so. We walked to the uninhabited city and walked about 3 km on foot, and suddenly the rain began to fall. We could not go on the one hand fatigue, on the one hand, rain. We stood under a tree. We stopped for a while and took us to a bus station in Shaki. Where would we go, where we came from. At Sheki Bus Station, we are already thinking of something, and people find a place to go to sleep. While we were watching people awake in the bus station, we were in the cold. We have already understood that Shakini can not sleep without sleep, in the rain. According to heavy rains, our dream to go to Oguz and dive into the water. We thought of options to sleep in a warm place. My friend Samir suggested that we go directly to Balakana and their village Kortala and rest there. We have agreed with all of us, we have gone to Cortina. After a jail, we finally reached the village. We were a guest of a good village family Osmanov. They welcomed us very well, gave us a place to sleep. The hospitable family of true Azerbaijan. It was the first time we were lucky to travel. We have already completed such an adventurous day. No strange events yet. We woke up in the morning and heard that Azercell's numbers did not work in the village for the first time, there was no network wave, and gas supply was suspended. You probably thought that this is happening because we came to the village. You are right. After visiting a little village, we decided to leave the village and go to the city and take a walk and a ticket to return to Baku. With this intention we came to the Balakan Railway Station. We would buy a ticket at the station, telling us that today we can not sell tickets without internet. So, our happiness continued. From there we came to Balaken bus station and the buses did not come to Baku because they were late. We were unable to put anybody in touch with our phones because there was no network wave. We decided to walk around Balak and then decide what to do. We walked around Balak and walked back to the village to stay. Now, we look back at the village. So it was about 9 o'clock in the evening, and we were still in the city. It was a little roughly 2km away to ride in the village. We were told that we would walk 2 miles along the road. We reached the point where we did not find any cars to the village. We are already full of dark weather, and we are also trying to go to the village. We did not take any attempts and again we decided to go on a desperate pedestrian. Imagination is frightening. At 10 am, we go to the village with a mountainous, wooded terrain. After about 4 km of these frightening areas, a driver dropped us to the car. But the room did not go long, and it did not reach the village. Thus, we traveled about 7 km on foot. We reached the village where we were going to cross two mountainous villages. We have already had enough of the events. When I told the residents of Kandil, we were surprised when we arrived from the city on foot at night. Yes we did it, but we were very tired. We rested comfortably. In the morning, we thanked the family who visited us and came to Baku to buy tickets to Baku by train. Finally, we were laughing at our luck, we got a ticket from Balakan to Baku at 6:45. After reaching the train for 12 hours, we arrived in Baku. So we ended up with this strange, adventure, excitement, and mysterious journey. We have made this journey all the time, whatever human beings, in any situation, wherever it happens, not to throw away friends who live in difficult times, but to care for them and protect them. Maybe in life in many places, not too often, but do not surrender, be patient, be careful, do not be afraid, and finally you will succeed. As we were able to transform our three friends into a delightful journey, we were able to turn it into a pleasant one. In the end, I would also like to point out that we were closely observing the state of transport during our 450 km journey, as 3 friendly transport students. During the trip, we used 1 train, 9 cars, 5 passenger buses, 1 ferry (horse-drawn carriage) and one wing, and we thought that no other vehicle was suitable, except for the train. As a transporter, we advise you to travel by train.
When I was young I was in love with one girl. She lived in city and I was living outside the city. And one night I want to met her but there was too late and dark outside, my natives were in their bedroom and was in room alone on the second floor. It was too late to go outside but I wanted to meet her. I decide to take ladder to my window from the outside and that is how I plan to escape the house. When everybody in the house feel asleep I step out the house. Then I went to railway station and went to the city. When I get to the city there was no public transport which I needed to go to my girl. There was only trolley buses which were taking workers to their houses. I stopped such bus like a taxi and payed some money to the trolley bus driver. That is how I extremely got to my destination point. After three hours I return back to home, got to my room by stairs and nobody saw me).
The First week as a medical intern One of my most thrilling moments was at the start of my medical internship. With the lab coat and tie, that was enough for me to walk around the hospital with everyone calling me a doctor. I was scared at the same time excited, this was my time; a time to grow up and become an adult. On the other hand i was very scared, all these people there lives are going to be in my hands; It was a time when cases that appeared in the text books came to life.My mind would keep wondering, what if i got some emergency patient, would i be to resuscitate them but within a month, i had gotten the experience to walk around the hospital as a doctor i had trained for the last five years.
В кожного із нас в душі живе екстримал, погодьтесь, адже на життєвій дорозі нам трапляються різноманітні ситуації в яких потрібно приймати рішення. А таких випадків на протязі життя вистачає! От і я вирішила вам розповісти свою досить цікаву історію з життя, яка виявилась ще й екстримальною… Я думаю усім відомий фразеологізм « Хто не ризикує, той не п’є шампанського» або ще одне відоме прислів’я «Перемагає той, хто не боїться ризикувати». Ці твердження заставляють нас рухатися вперед , досягати поставленої мети.
Ризикнувши, у нас появляється можливість чогось добитися , спробувати себе в чомусь новому , або ж навпаки. Взагалі у мене такий девіз « Як ризикувати, то ризувати на повну» .
І так повернемося до моєї екстримальної історії…
Одного разу мій друг запросив мене спробувати себе у скалелазінні, я не довго думаючи погодилась... Правду кажуть, очам страшно, а руки зроблять! Перші кроки вверх були найпростіші, але рухаючись вперед ставало все тяжкіше і страх впасти зростав. Тим не менше долізши до середини стіни, я відчула новий приплив енергії, приплив сили… Так це був він, АДРЕНАЛІН, або як ще кажуть відкрилось друге дихання! І вже стало взагалі не страшно, а навпаки хотілось якнайскоріше долізти до верху стіни… Ще декілька кроків уверх і я на піку слави - це був один із найяскравіших моментів .
Стіни можуть бути призначені для людей з мінімальною спортивною підготовкою , як у моєму випадку, чи для підготовлених спортсменів , як мій друг, що запросив мене спробувати. В будь-якому випадку стіни для скелелазіння – це цікаво, корисно для здоров’я, а ще й адреналін зашкалює, коли ти дивишся з верху стіни вниз і розумієш, що ти це зробила!!!
Я дуже вдячна своєму другу за таку ідею, це було реально круто!!! Бажаю усім спробувати щось екстримальне та нове, я впевнена ви - не пошкодуєте!!!
This week I had gone to explore the Western Ghats. For those who don't know the Western Ghats I am including a Wikipedia citation. " The area is one of the world's ten "Hottest biodiversity hotspots" and has over 7,402 species of flowering plants, 1,814 species of non-flowering plants, 139 mammal species, 508 bird species, 179 amphibian species, 6,000 insects species and 290 freshwater fish species; it is likely that many undiscovered species live in the Western Ghats. At least 325 globally threatened species occur in the Western Ghats."
You need a risk taking ability to go deeper in the mountain range simply because it's dense forest filled with variety of wild animals and you are driving along the edges of cliffs most of the time. Roadside drive instructions keep warning from time to time that any time big boulders and rocks may come collapsing on roads, Wild animals like Leopard and Tigers may cross the roads. Thus you are advised to avoid stoppages in journey and try to complete it as early and as safely as possible.This is where adventure of driving comes in picture where you are on your own if any thing goes wrong caught between stiff cliff on one side and deep valley on the other. The curvy roads keep you on edge of seat all the time while visibility can also be challenge if mist happens to cover the drive way. If you are a kind of person who loves to drive to adventure land then this is where you should be heading.
Thank you all. I hope after watching you all feel like picking up the car keys and leaving fro the drive.
1.RUSSIAN + 2.ENGLISH: 1. RU: Мне нравится зимний велосипед. Поэтому я предлагаю свои навыки доставки велосипедного гонца в моем городе. Типичный образец этой доставки на этом видео - был записан в первый понедельник после снегопада. Не то, чтобы я чуть не попал в аварию, но грузовик пошел с минимальным интервалом. Кроме того, водитель грузовика сигнализировал слишком поздно - и я решил не падать в снег, полагаясь на мастерство водителя грузовика. То, что это действительно позволяет назвать мое увлечение экстремальным, как любого, кто совершает велосипедные прогулки в городе каждый день - независимо от того, что едет на работу, доставляет почту, или просто катается. В эту миссию я проеду восемь километров пути, который был завален снегом, обгоняя грузовики, автобусы и т. д. И возле светофора, поскольку тротуары безнадёжно завалены снегом - мне придётся обогнать их на встречной полосе. Все это сопровождается комментарием автора, который был записан чуть позже, дома. Снег в нашем Екатеринбурге не редкость, и его потом ещё выпало много. И он продолжал падать. В этот день весь город застрял в пробке. Удачи, надеюсь, что видео принесет удовольствие! Авторский комментарий был записан уже дома. Он немного не совпадает с событиями, но несущественно. 2. EN: I like winter bicycling. Therefore, i offer my skills of delivery an bike messenger in my city. Tipical sample of that delivery on this video was recorded first week post snowfall. Not that I almost got in an accident - but truck went with a minimum interval. Besides, truck driver signaled too late - and I dont fall into the snow, and relied on the truck driver`s skill. That it really allow name my hobby is extreme, like any who make bicycle rides in a city every day - independent that commuting, delivery, or fitness. That mission , I will drive eight kilometers of track, which was formed, pressed by overtaking trucks, buses, etc. And near the traffic light, because the sidewalks littered with snow - I will have to overtake them in the opposite lane, and I'll leave forward again. All this is accompanied by the author's comment, which was recorded at home. Snow in our Yekaterinburg and then there was a lot. And continues to falling. And I - continues to falling, and falling. The whole town was firmly jammed in a stack that day. Good luck, I hope the video will bring pleasant! Музыка: Eclectrica - Dark Star (promodj.com) House Of Horrors (Royalty free audio) (promodj.com)
Maybe, maybe ... Although, I do not concentrate on danger. And since I do not concentrate, I can also notice a few more dangers. For example, physical inactivity is more dangerous than riding a bicycle. Especially - hypodynamia behind the wheel of the car, or the computer desktop. Moreover, if you look at a car crash compilation videos on youtube - then, perhaps, you will agree with me that driving at car speed is much more dangerous than driving at the speed of a bicycle.
I love heights, roller coaster and dragon rides. So I thought to share my Extreme Experience here. Few months back me and my friends went for hiking. It was a amazing experience for me especially. We had a lot of fun there, enjoyed and done Bar B.Q in the afternoon.. It is a great memory for all of us. A day was spent very well..
Добрый день, Dukascopy. Сегодня я готова поделиться своим экстремальным опытом! Сама по себе я люблю чувствовать адреналин в крови, это моё. Мой первый, но думаю не последний прыжок состоялся в городе Запорожье (Украина). На улице было лето, я приехала к моей хорошей подруге на отдых и в ходе прогулок и задушевных разговоров я узнала что осуществляются прыжки с моста, а именно Rope Jumping. Не долго думая я набрала номер и записалась, по счастливой случайности прыжок назначили в этот же день. В назначенное время я пришла на Арочный мост, все люди стояли в ожидании и с интересом наблюдали за подготовкой. И вот на меня уже одели экипировку. После проверочного прыжка, в мгновение начала выстраиваться очередь, я в ней оказалась не из последних. Я стояла и наблюдала как легко первый прыгнул, а за ним второй... моё сознание всё больше и больше представляло как это будет происходить со мной, во мне разгорался интерес, нет мне не было страшно, во мне горел огонь азарта. И вот ОН!! Пришёл тот момент. Я уже стою на краю, и передо мной открывается живописнейший вид на закат, реку и остров Хортицу вблизи меня. Я чувствую, как ветер кается моих волос... но, СТРАШНО ЖУТЬ, словами не описать. Ты стоишь и думаешь: " Боже, я сейчас прыгну в пропасть"... проходит пару мин, а я все не решаюсь, уже начала чувствовать как трусятся мои коленки... и вот голос кого-то из команды: " Если сейчас не прыгнешь, мы тебя снимаем". "Что????? Снимаете???" - подумала возмущенно я. Я просто взяла себя в руки ииииииииии прыгнула - доли секунды ощущения свободного полёта - безумное количество адреналина в крови и то самое чувство, что я смогла преодолеть свой страх. Внизу меня встречал парень на лодке. Но те эмоции не передать словами, их нужно только пережить хотя бы раз в жизни каждому человеку. Походу я стала фанатом этого вида экстрима. С нетерпением жду следующих прыжков!
Как же я боялась высоты!! И это было таким невероятным преодолением себя и своего страха! Вот стоишь ты на краю, душа просто разрывается, глубокий вдох-выдох, инструктор считает три-два-одииин!!! Твои ноги отрываются от мостика, куда-то исчезает страх и остаётся только наслаждение от полёта!!) Как же это круто!! Несколько секунд бесконтрольного - просто непередаваемые ощущения!!! Если не знаешь что делать, сделай шаг вперёд!!
CLIMB MOUNT KILIMANJARO, THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN IN AFRICA
Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest Mountain in Africa, it is one of the Volcanic Mountain in the world. This Mountain is allocated in my country Tanzania. People come from different areas to try go as far as they can to reach to the top.
Many people give different stories about this Mountain. For example, when i was in primary School, My teacher used to tell us that at the pick of the Mount Kilimanjaro there is deepest hole which has the scary fire and so so many stories. I had a dream since my childhood that one day i will try to climb that Mountain. So, last month i decided to go and visited the peak of UHURU. it one of the highest pick that people fail to reach but i did. I felt so amazing and i will never forget this experience.
Não há emoção maior que ver os Jogos Olímpicos sediados no seu país e ainda mais na sua casa! Emoção ao extremo realmente! Assisti várias partidas, entre elas, Austrália x Canadá futebol feminino e foi muito legal curtir esse momento perto de onde moro e no estádio Arena Corinthians. Pode não ser nada radical ou que tenha alguma aventura extrema, mas a emoção e a adrenalina foram ao extremo de tanta alegria e por esse motivo, escolhi esse momento para ser compartilhado. Acredito que só quem passou por isso sabe como é, ao tocar os hinos dos países e ver inúmeras pessoas de diversas partes do mundo e eu ali, testemunhando tudo a cada instante. Foi muito legal! Indescritível! O dia foi perfeito e a partida emocionante, mas o que valeu mesmo foi estar presente nesse momento histórico na minha vida e que está compartilhada com todos vocês, um breve momento dele que pra mim foi emoção ao extremo.
There is no biggest emotion than seeing the Olympic Games in your country and even more in your home! Emotion in extreme, really! I watched several matches, among them, Australia vs Canada women's football and it was really cool to enjoy this moment. Close to where i live and at the Arena Corinthians Stadium, a brilliant stadium! It may not be anything radical or have some extreme adventure, but the joy and adrenaline went to the extreme and for this reason, i chose this moment to be shared. I think that just who be seen, know how it is! playing the country hymns and seeing people from different sides of the world... it's was amazing!!! And I there, witnessing everything at every moment. It was very cool! Indescribable! The day was perfect and the match exciting, but what really was worth was being present at this historic moment in my life! And that is shared with all of you, a brief moment of it that for me was emotion in extreme.
