I have told you all before that while in New Zealand I went bungee jumping.
It can only be defined as an experience that I had spent years dreaming of, but wasn’t at all what I expected.
I’m still not sure what exactly I had been expecting. Maybe to feel as if I were a bird, flying through the air. Or maybe I thought it would be a terrifying experience. I’m not sure what to say, but how it really was is still a bit hard to explain.
I hardly remember the experience at all, but if you want to read what I wrote previously, check out my post Taking the plunge.
What I do remember is being weirdly calm and excited, and then as soon as I got to the platform and looked down, I got scared.
I remember how it felt like I wasn’t even moving after I jumped, but I could feel air fluttering my cheeks, and as soon as I began falling again my stomach lurched.
I remember how much my ankles hurt because the towel around them slipped off.
But most of all I remember how proud of myself I was, and how high I felt afterwards.
It was incredible.
So here is the video of the whole experience!
Have you ever been bungee jumping? If not would you go? If so how was it?
