Picture of the Day 25.01.2016
The rain is back and it is literally so bad I jumped of a bridge. But let's start in the morning: Remember yesterdays awesome photo from that tree in Lake Wanaka at sunset? Well I tried to top it this morning so I got up really early hoping for a great sunset. At least it wasn't raining so I went out there full of optimism....which was wrong. It was nothing but grey and even more grey. I'm so happy I got the picture yesterday otherwise I would be really pissed.
But back to the bridge. The Bungy was invented in Queenstown and the first commercial jump in the world is of the 43m high Kawarau Bridge just outside the town. Of course I had to do it. It was the most awesome experience I had on my travels, even better than my skydive. When skydiving you are so high up the ground doesn't really make sense to your brain, you just fall. But with the Bungy you are so close yet so far from the ground all of your instincts try to keep you from jumping. Just don't think, once they strapped my in I just jumped. It's complete sensory overload and way to much adrenaline, I can't even describe it, everyone just has to experience it personally.
For a more relaxing end to the day I went out on a boat on Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown for what was supposed to be the sunset. There was no sunset, just rain but for one brief moment some sun broke through and that's today's picture. Nothing compared to yesterday but ok for a rainy day. Wish me luck for the Milford Sounds tomorrow.
