Day 166 in Beijing: The Singapore Flyer.

Jill and I decided to do a little sight-seeing and wanted to visit the Singapore Flyer.

A word of advice to people that know me, I work as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and love working with people that are experiencing depression and/or anxiety.

I find that anxiety, with a motivated client, is very easy to cure and a lot of fun.

The reason I believe it is fun is that the client, in a very short amount of time, can master their fears and usually start laughing at how silly they were and how easily the client has defeated them.

I have no fear of heights but Jill does.

We’ve been working on them a bit and she’s done an amazing job of mastering them.

When we met, there was probably little chance she would have gone up in the Flyer and looked out the windows.

Today, almost fearless!

Since this is low season, we didn’t have to wait at all and got in one of the capsules with another couples, who happened to be on their real honeymoon, and an Australian bloke.

We all enjoyed the flight and loved seeing Singapore from a different vantage point.

As you can see in the pictures, Jill was able to look out the windows, stand up and walk around and had almost no problems for the whole 30 minute trip.  She is getting closer and closer to conquering her fears of heights and I can’t wait for her to stand at the tip of a building and exclaim, “I’m the Queen of the world!”  Hopefully, unlike Titanic, the building won’t collapse after she states it.
