Tequila Remorse & Parasailing

Why is it that tequila always seems like a good idea at the time but you regret it the next day? It’s like there’s an evil tequila troll living inside us, waiting patiently until a moment of weakness.

Being hungover today and suffering from acute tequila remorse, there was only one thing I could to salvage the day: go parasailing in St Thomas.

Parasailing is that thing where you are attached to a parachute and are dragged along by a boat. Funny to think that we just spent 3 days at sea only to join a smaller boat when we’re finally on land again. At least this boat doesn’t make you do boat drills.

So yeah, it was fun. It’s a bit like bungee-jumping except that you’re attached to a parachute and you’re not falling. And it’s more relaxing. Actually, it was unexpectedly more relaxing than an adrenaline rush. You just feel like you’re floating along on a cloud. I could have read a book or had a nap. Good thing I did actually bring a book aling just in case. You just never know when you’re going to be bored while out parasailing.

About Me


In 2004, I sold everything I owned and left New Zealand to go see the world. In that time, I've run with bulls in Pampolona, watched the Man burn at Black Rock City, volunteered at a special-needs summer camp in New York, hosted & couchsurfed with 100+ people, taught English in Prague, trained with Muay Thai fighters in Phuket, worked on 5 different cruise ships, hugged strangers on streets in 7 countries and this one time, I even hitchhiked naked (but that was back home, so that doesn't really count). I moved to Vancouver, BC a year ago, to embark on new adventures. It's nice here, I think I may stay awhile! Let's connect: @roymarvelous, facebook & RSS.
