CRAZY RIDE

By this time, most of you have probably seen this video of the girl falling while bungee jumping on the bridge between Zambia and Zimbabwe over (and into) the rapids of the Zambezi river... If not, here it is:


Well, it was especially frightening for me to see it, because at the end of August I made that exact same jump! It could have been me (or any of my 7 friends who also made the jump that week). I don't regret doing it at all - and they have still had zero fatalities (yay to the Australian girl being a strong swimmer!) so it's a safe place to bungee, but I think they'll see a lot less tourists deciding to jump! Here are my photos from when I jumped. They get you to stand with your toes over the edge, arms out, look out into the horizon, then they go "5, 4, 3, 2, 1, BUNGEE!" then they push you as you jump to be sure you get out far enough.









I'm so sorry for being absent from my blog this past month! I was in Houston for two weeks, then Ottawa for a week and I really had no time to blog at either of those places. I'm happy to be home and stationary for now! I have no more travel plans until Vegas in May and Toronto in June/July. I'm so happy to be able to relax in my own home now!

Thanks for reading. xo!
