mine was when i almost drowned, i was far away from home, it was new years, even the people who were near me were sort of strangers it was one of those weird days in your life, you know for sure something is going to happen, but wake up in the morning and then just almost drown is surprising my near death experience will be in another topic, it's true, you see stuff when you are about to go, i was even asked if i wanted to stay or go and it would be a good place that's why i'm not afraid of dying anymore

I almost drowned once too, when I was trying to save someone else in treacherous conditions. We were about half a kilometre offshore jetskiing when we were asked to help a catamaran which had overturned. The wind picked up strongly blowing offshore and the tide was also pulling strongly out towards the ocean. We could not get his catamaran righted so we put him on our jet ski with us but due to the extra weight and large waves crashing over the top, my jet ski started to fill with water and then stopped before sinking partly. We had to leave it and swim through the large choppy waves against the wind and tide. It seemed to take hours. My jet ski and his catamaran were found the next day washed up on an island over the other side of the bay! That was just one adventure that I have had where I thought I might die. The others were a big car crash I had which destroyed my car and another time while on the trip of a lifetime, I got stuck hanging off a chairlift at a ski resort. I was hanging off it for about 20 minutes before I could not hang on any more, so I fell and hoped for the best. The only injuries I had were muscle soreness and a cut and bruised lip from where I kneed myself in the face upon landing!

hi katieO mine was when I had a horrible cold. I got up to go to the bathroom and started cough.my son and hubby were asleep. I coughed so hard I guess I passed out. then i w as in a long hall light be some sort of built in lighting and I walked towards this bright glow but I was not afraid at all as something made me keep walking. there was Christ all in shining white robes and my mom stood beside him which startled me as she was still alive then she came towards me as C hrist said, go back with your mom its not yet your time. I felt no pain,my side no longer hurt ' and all was in peace. but then I wo ke to myu husband talking to me. He told me I had fainted and was gurgling. he had called an ambulance as he felt I was too ill for a cold. then in the ER the doctor told us I had to be admitted as I had bacterial pneumonia and I was in the hospital for ten days. but now I am not afraid of dying.it was a heavenly warm comfortable place.

the biggest adventure in my life was when i went to Sagada with my bf and had this caving connection which was really difficult and scary. my bf even thought he would lose me at one point.

I think in general, my entire four years of high school was just a series of events then when tied together, would make an actual adventure. One of these days, I plan to sit down and write down an account of some of my absurd experiences in High School. However, I will make it seem like a fiction story and then put at the end, "by the way, all of these events are completely true." Minds will be blown. Still when you think about it, life in general is an adventure. There are just a lot of times that things happen, before better or for worse. I think that in the end, life is the biggest adventure when you think about it. There have been things that have happened, some great, some boring. However, I hope to have many more adventures before my number gets called and it is my time to go.
