Somewhere on the outskirts of Moscow, Russia.
Tuesday, 27th June, 2017
We were ready in military outfits, combat boots, and a tank helmet. Strict instructions were given. Dos and Don’ts. Serious, yet thrilling. We could hear our hearts throbbing with excitement. We were booked for a day’s activities at a former Soviet Military Camp. The real thing. With real tanks, guns, bombs. In fact, our instructor was a retired military man too. We climbed on to the tank and felt the earth rumble beneath. Sheer power! We lived it all: the tank jumping over uneven, off-road terrain, and feeling the blast from the shot of its 100 mm canon, and a shot at rifle ambush in the woods. Thank you Vibrant Holidays, no other high compares to this. This experience of war, far better than PS4’s God of War!.
