3, 2, 1 Bungy....

I was standing at the edge of a tower 83 meters (272 feet) in the air. The guy holding me told me not to look down. When do you do what you are told? I could see my friends standing below, they looked like ants from where I was standing.

In an instant the guy holding me counted 3, 2, 1 bungy. I leaned forward, like they told me. "Fall forward like a falling tree." I saw the ground come in to view and in a split second my feet were off the platform and the ground was hurtling towards me. I could feel the rubber cord pull at my feet. I was thrown up into the air once again. This repeated until I came to a stop dangling meters above the ground.

"Perfect jump!" said the guy who pulled me to the ground. "Best jump all day." I was still shaking as I headed over to my group of friends. I looked once more up at the tower. I did it!!!!!

  1. WOW! Crazy girl. But I suspected you would do something like this if you had the chance, and you did.
