Still can’t believe this was a year ago. So much has happened since my week in Queenstown, New Zealand. I can tell you that my fear of heights is still there but I would jump again. I even yelled that on my way down amongst other things. *sorry for what I said bungy guy, I was nervous* 😱 #KawarauBungy#ThrillOfALifetime#JustJump

Meet Nick (@lylwood), a wood-busking Bungy jumper! 😃🙌🏼 “I’m on the road in my old Ford Fairmont continuing my journey around the South Island!
I’m wood busking around!!
It all started in Perth, Australia when I thought I could use driftwood to burn on logos in return for coffee/food/conversation!
I’m having a blast, making burnt wood artwork for places I like, usually like the logo!
In return I get food, coffee, beer, T-shirt’s, trips, smiles - your country and people are great.” What a story! 💙

Jumped off the bridge today.
8/10 for the swann dive
Jumped from original place of this activity itself, as it it began with a small group of people in Vanuatu.
They fearlessly threw themselves from huge towers for centuries with merely a few vines around their feet. They called it ‘land-diving’, and legend says that it started when a mistreated wife threw herself from a tall tree, saving herself with the vines while the husband fell to his death. The river should be crystal clear but it was raining so, yup #nzmustdo#kawaraubridge#kawaraubungy
#tbt to when I bungy jumped off the Kawarau bridge in NZ! I still can't believe I did it and that I actually enjoyed it. 😮
Fun fact: I originally planned to jump tandem but decided against it after heeding warnings from the staff that tandem could be bad for my shitty ankles. It would have been amazing to jump with my best friend...but also potentially stupid since we were only halfway through our trip. And this year I'm focusing on a new thing called "proactively trying not to be stupid". So I decided to jump solo...and also put on 2 pairs of compression socks to ease my anxiety. 🤣
It's an honest to god miracle I didn't chicken out at the last minute. Although I really, really wanted to. It is one of the craziest and most insane things I've done, but I'm so proud of myself for going through with it. I had an absolute blast!! Plus I got to meet a bunch of interesting people, share our overwhelming feelings, cheer everyone on, and generally have a great interactive experience.
PS: that adrenaline rush is NO JOKE.
One of the best birthday present! Thank you guys for it and our great trip! #bangee#bangeejumping#kawaraubungy#bungyjump Лучший подарок на день рождения - очень страшно стоять- дует ветер, резинка тянет вниз и такой кайф лететь вниз - когда можно просто наслаждаться моментом и довериться тем, кто это натягивал, и от тебя ничего не требуется кроме первого ‘шага’ - на лодках кататься порой пострашнее- там нельзя выключать мозг - но об этом в других постах ;) ! #банжиджампинг#nofear
O que vocês fizeram ou planejam fazer na sua lua de mel?
Uma das coisas que fizemos foi essa doideira de pular de bungee jump e foi uma das melhores experiências da nossas vidas. .
Queenstown na Nova Zelândia, é mundialmente conhecida como a capital dos esportes radicais.
Kawarau Bridge Bungy! I didn’t get scared until 1 second into the free fall, at which point I squeezed my GoPro so hard it turned off 🤦🏼♀️😂🤦🏼♀️😂 oh well! Next time I’ll nail the bungy vid cause I’m definitely doing this again 💯
