We interrupt regular reporting of vacation memories because of a major anxiety attack. Mine.
Did you know I had anxiety issues? If you read here regularly you probably made that assumption, I would guess. I may have mentioned it once or twice. 🙄
Did you know I had anxiety attacks in cable cars?
Me either. 😐
This is new to me.
What is wrong with me? 😂
I’ve been in them numerous times and it never bothered me before.
This is the one we took this morning. It seats 6 but fits 8 people.
It’s crowded when there’s 7 and two are children and one of the children is my teeny girl.
And you’re swinging from a cable.
Did I mention it was windy? We also had rain, thunder and lightning, albeit before we boarded the tiny car hanging on a skinny rope…
I was only freaked a little on the way up, but not enough to stop snapping photos. 🙄
Like these shots:
But on the way down* however…? OMG.
It doesn’t make sense. I mean, I used to fly regularly as a flight attendant. Heights and altitude didn’t bother me at all.
I skiied in the Swiss Alps using ski lifts which had us small children dangle precariously in mid air back in the day. I thought it was fun, not scary.
Is it age? Parenting? WHAT?
Regular reporting of vacation memories will continue after I have a lengthy, hot shower and drink a giant glass of wine.
*We boarded the cable car in the middle of the mountain to go down but for some reason it took us aaaaaal the way back up first. That was when my anxiety peaked. Plus we stopped midway. I can’t even…
We took our kids from Toronto, Canada to Switzerland on vacation. This is our adventure.
