|Queenstown is said to be the adventure and adrenalin sports capital of the world. Again it is set in a stunning location on the banks of a clear blue lake and overlooked by green mountains. I decided I was going to do a bungee jump here. I chose to do a slight variation of a bungee jump called the canyon swing. Just like a bungee you jump from a stupidly high height (109m) but after the free falling is over you are swung forward through the canyon at 100mph. I was far more nervous about doing this than I was the skydive. However, the nerves seemed to go on the day of the jump and even when I was getting my harness on I was more excited than nervous. I somehow ended up being the first in the group to jump. I walked onto the platform and looked over the edge and I don't mind admitting that at that point I was more frightened than I have ever been in my entire life. I stood on the edge hesitating and wondered if it was acceptable to start crying and run away. And when I think back now I do not know how I plucked up the courage to jump. But I did and I absolutely loved it. I did a further 2 jumps where I was suspended upside down looking at the river and rocks hundreds of metres below before being dropped. These are said to be more frightening because you fall at faster speeds and see the ground getting closer and closer. But with these you are released and don't have to physically jump yourself and nothing was more terrifying than standing on the ledge and having to make the conscious decision to jump.
