... taken great care not to cut down any living trees in erecting it, diligently cutting out section of the boards to fit them around tree trunks and even hanging lianas that protruded across its route. At the top of the boardwalk there was a series of two waterfalls. We scrambled up the steep rock to the upper fall, and I had a swim in a deep dark pool underneath it. Not too cold once you're in, and very refreshing. We ate sandwiches ...

Then you repeat these moves as many times as you like. See simples, now go try ...

Understanding the science of bungee jumping now, a person does not simply stop when the bungee begins to pull, the cord recoils and the jumper goes back up again to free fall once more.
