The Biggest Adrenaline Rush Ever - Kawarau Bridge Bungy, Queenstown, New Zealand

I bungy jumped. All there is to it. I, Sarah Tucker, jumped off a perfectly sound bridge, 43 meter or 140 foot fall. I want to do it again.

I was perfectly fine as 4 of us walked out onto the bridge and put our harnesses on. 2 girls went and then it was my turn. Chatting it up with guys strapping me in, stand up walk close to the edge and they ask me a question and I don't answer. My mind stopped working, what the heck am I about to do! It was terrifying, but I somehow managed to jump.

Not the graceful swan dives you always see, I think it's because we were in body harnesses and not foot ones. But still an epic picture that I love.

For the less than 5 second free fall you can't scream and all I could think about was how unsure I was that this rope wasn't going to catch me. Then it did and all I could do was scream. Most exhilarating feeling ever.
