Last weekend, my friends and I toured the Garden Route, a beautiful drive through several towns, forests, and beaches along South Africa’s southern, Indian Ocean coast.
It was a blast, and I can’t wait to write all about it. Unfortunately, I don’t have time yet, and when I do get a chance to write an entry this week, it will focus upon my amazing homestay in Ocean View (a township) that I finished a week ago. (I know I’m behind.)
But until then…I had to share the most terrifying moment of my life: jumping off the Bloukrans Bridge. 216 meters…the tallest bungy jump in the world. (Or at least it was until recently–I’ve heard that there is a slightly taller one in China now, but I saw the Guiness Book certificate with my own eyes. So I’ll be telling people that I jumped off the world’s highest. Not that it matters…when you’re that high, the terror is all the same.)
Go here to watch me jump: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zU30OS91ixE.
Enjoy! And I’ll be back with my next full post soon I hope!
