Next to giving birth, bungee jumping was the biggest rush of adrenaline I've ever experienced. It was not painful like it looks. In fact, it was the most peaceful minute of my life. My stomach didn't flip like on a roller coaster. I just fell, toward rushing water in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Afterward, as I walked back to Dan and the boys who were watching from the bridge, I was ready to jump again.
On Sunday, Elijah's birthday, the whole team went to the bridge, this time to see Dan jump. We bought the adventure package which included a zip line and bungee jump as well as the gorge swing. Basically, it was $30 on top of the usual bungee jump price to get all three...we decided to go for it and split the package. The swing is just like the bungee jump in that you jump off the platform free falling toward the water but the rope is attached to your middle instead of your feet. You jump out rather than dive and once the rope catches you, you swing for hundreds of feet until it slows you down. It looked like a lot of fun.
Elijah cheering for daddy
Elijah has been jumping off of things all day and asking for his turn to jump. He thought it was so cool that mommy and daddy got to jump off a bridge. More on our trip to Vic Falls in coming....just had to share the most exciting part first.
