Did you know that what we call abseiling, Americans call "rapelling"??
I learn something new every day!
Yesterday my work company hosted a large charity fundraiser which involved approx 60 staff members abseiling down our building.
As you can see our building is quite tall - by Irish standards anyway.
Here I am before the abseil.
It was a terrifying but enjoyable experience doing the abseil. The initial "leaning out" over the building is very scary and then the actual abseil is tough on your arms.
But the adrenalin rush on completion is something incredible!
The sheer rush I got, plus THIS down in our plaza made it all worth it!
