Cliffhanger

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

As soon as I saw this fascinating photo of Preikestolen in Norway, I got goosebumps all over, because I'm terrified of heights, so there is no way I'd go anywhere near that rock - and certainly not so close to the edge. Yikes! But from the safety of my couch, I'm totally jealous of people who can enjoy that extraodinary view and that free feeling you must have when you are up there! Dears, are you scared of heights? xoxo


Ps: Fancy a chit-chat? Join me on Twitter!

(thanks Julie)

Casey said...

I love Norway.. if only obtaining citizenship there was easier!!!

I am not afraid of heights usually, but in all honesty this picture makes me wonder if I could handle being up that high and completely unrestricted.

Cool pic!

I didn't used to be afraid, but with each year that passes I find myself less likely to jump out of a plane, rock climb too high or stand on the edge without anything between me and my possible plummet to death.

I'm with ya sister.

Awesome pic though!

I'm a bit scared of heights too, but this is stunning! I'd maybe brave it just for that amazing view (maybe :)).

Wow, my whole life I wasn't afraid of heights and then about a year ago - totally hit me. Suddenly at 43 I got very nervous about it, so I'd probably pass on walking out onto that rock but it's very cool.

I just got dizzy looking at this, it's amazing!

Vinda Sonata said...

if the height's like the one in the picture, i'd absolutely be scared, very scared.

Kassie said...

I'm terrified of heights. Like legit shake and stuff. I try really hard to get over it for things like that though. I was terrified to ride the London Eye but after ten minutes I relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful view. But I totally understand what you mean.

I was so surprised when I saw this picture; I've been there! It was overall one of the best experiences of my entire life. Climbing up there was so difficult; but the end was so rewarding. You have to go here!!

Martini said...

That's a beautiful cliff and while the picture is wonderful, I don't know if I could do the heights thing...then again, I guess I could just not look down.

Danielle said...

This is incredible!
