FULL TRANSCRIPT

Today’s episode is Helicopter rides. Let’s make every day an adventure helicopter. Going up in a helicopter has been a big bucket list item for me for years, years and years and years. I wanted to go up in a helicopter.

But as with many things, resistance comes in. Why number one? Oh, it’s too expensive. It’s this. There’s no helicopter rides here.

All this and this and this right. There are always excuses for something that we really want to do. Right. And the other real big thing is that nobody in my family has any interest whatsoever in doing a helicopter ride. Well, nobody in my media family likes my husband and my sons.

So I never really had anybody to do it with here in Guatemala. Anyway, So we were going to visit my parents in New York, and one of my friends just did a helicopter ride, a tour. And I was like, you know what? I’ve wanted to do this forever.

My family completely refused. So I was like, who’s the adventure person in my house and my family? My mother. So immediately I told my mom I’m like, do you want to go in a helicopter? She’s like, oh, well, your father doesn’t want to.

I’m like, no, it’s a gift for just me and you, something that me and you could do together. And she was totally into it. So I found out that there’s several helicopter tours in Manhattan. Obviously, you notify over New York City, so I’m sure it’s the same for your area as well. There’s probably a bunch of different options.

So I chose the 15 minutes one because I’ll be honest with you, I get motion sickness quite a lot. And I think 15 minutes is a good time to see if this is something that I really enjoy or if it’s not for me. So I made a reservation for me and my mom to go on this tour of New York. We got to the place. And interestingly enough, there were like 100 people there gracefully.

The actual helicopter only took four people in total. Plus, obviously, the pilot. So we didn’t have to wait long because we did have a reservation and we went up. It was a 15 minutes ride. So for me, that 15 minutes was just enough.

I was probably sick for half of the time, but I did force myself to keep my eyes open because the views are spectacular. My mom, who I would actually think would have more motion sickness because she gets motion sickness in the car, had absolutely no problem with it. She thought it was not enough time. So obviously, you need to find that middle point. But you won’t know that middle point until you try it.

And funny enough, it’s not that expensive. I think it was like $250 for the both of us for the whole time. I know this sounds a little bit expensive, but it’s not. It’s really not that pricey to get the bucket list item off of your list and to see if you want to do it again. So I really recommend it if this is something that you guys want to try.

The views are spectacular. If you do get motion sickness you might surprise yourself and not be that sick at all because you’ll be so focused on the beautiful views all around you. So if you have a chance to check off that bucket list item, go for a helicopter tour check but it was so worth it and the best part was that I got to experience it with my mom. So are you guys wondering what kind of cool make every day an adventure item that you want to check off? I’ve got tons for you to do.

The majority of them are right there right in your own backyard. You don’t have to travel far. Not expensive but something that you’ve been wanting to do so just go for it, go do it, go to travelexperta.com, travel expert with an a dot com and I’ve got a free awesome list for you right there.
