    On 31 December 2011, an Australian tourist bungee-jumped off the Victoria Falls bridge at the Zambia-Zimbabwe border. At 111 meters, it’s one of the highest bungee jump in the world. She was the 105th person to jump that day. Everything leading up to the point of her jump appeared routine. And then, every thrill-seeker’s worst nightmare happened – the bungee chord snapped.

    ... We also tried to buy a self-inflatable mattress for our upcoming 45-day camping trip, but we were unsuccessful. Hopefully Cape Town shopping centers will help us out in that regard.

    Late afternoon we went on a whale and dolphin watching trip which we were pretty excited about. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see any animals and actually didn’t even get to go out of the harbor. Knysna has a natural harbor which is supposedly one of the ...
