Day 21: Cairns

A travel blog entry by caseyfmoore

So, he put the belt on me and pulled it tight. 5 minutes later as I was heading for ...

The Day of Reckoning

A travel blog entry by thewilkinsons


... big smile for the camera, and what followed was pretty much a perfect swan dive to bungee. I didn't want to hang around there for long but when I jumped it was amazing and loved every second. Then came Vicky. Already being at the bottom I shouted up as much encouragement as I could but then left her to it. I watched her make her way to the end. The 5 second countdown but she didn't jump.
