Did you know I recently celebrated my birthday?
Yep. I'm officially old in case that matters....
Well, about a week before my birthday, I received a mysterious email from my sister:
"I'll pick you up at 8:30am on your birthday and will return you at 7:00pm. Bring your camera."
How cool is that?
Well the big surprise was a fun day at the San Diego Safari Park!
We started out with a Segway tour!
We explored all around the park - getting up close and personal to the animals...
Then we walked around checking out the other exhibits too -- like the baby gorilla:
And a birthday dessert! (no worries - calories don't stick on your birthday....right?)
What does riding a Segway feel like?
Riding the Segway feels like nothing you've ever experienced because there's never been anything like it. Step on and your instinct will be to steady yourself, as you would on anything with two wheels. But almost immediately you'll realize that the Segway is balancing for you, almost like it has become an extension of you. Just lean forward a little and you'll see that the Segway isn't moving you on its own; it's moving in response to you and what you tell it to do. It all feels natural and really cool.
