Jumping Headfirst into 2017

Queenstown, New Zealand is often referred to as the Adventure Capital of the World. I figured when in Rome

One of the adventures you can experience in Queenstown is bungee jumping. Bungee jumping is something that always has intrigued me. I did a bit of research and found a company called AJ Hackett. They are one of the most reputable bungee companies in the world.

They offer a few different bungee jumps in the Queenstown area. I decided it was either go big or go home and decided to do the biggest one they have: The Nevis Bungee. It also is one of the biggest ones in the whole world. It is a 134 meter (440 feet) drop. You get a whole 8 seconds of pure free fall before you start to feel the tension of the bungee. After hitting the bottom and bouncing back up, the second fall is still bigger than most bungees in the world.

The experience was amazing and one I’ll never forget. I put together a little video of the bungee. The song I chose is the one that was actually playing during my jump.

Hope you enjoy!

Watch out for my awkward hand wave before my jump…
