It was a lot of fun
There is a sensation of freedom, mixture of feelings from being scared to being happy and excited and then getting nervous again! As I got to the bridge I could feel my heart jumping out of my body and Larrissa looked so calm. As soon as we started getting kited up, I felt a little bit more relaxed and Larrissa started getting nervous. This switching of our feelings continued throughout the whole procedure. As you get ready, they explain the jump to you and at that moment, you can see them talk, and you can see their lips move, but the sounds are covered by your fear of jumping. I can't describe it to you. You get to the edge of the platform and they count down, 5,4,3,2,1 Bunjee. And you are off! With the loudest scream ever! :) It feels like you are stationary and the whole place is rotating around you. There is this magnificent release of endorphins and adrenaline rush, which I can understand why sometimes some people have a heart attack as they do it! The last incident of that was 15 years ago by the way! :)
We didn't spin much which was a good thing, and the whole thing must have taken about 10 seconds
The next day Steve and I went over to Zimbabwe after the jump to have a day out in Zimbabwe. Unfortunately for us British is costs 55 USD to cross the border, whereas it is usually 35 USD. We met up with a few of the others and had lunch at one of the game restaurants where they serve game meat. It was OK. But a little bit expensive for what it was. We had Warhog and Impala.
On the way back to the border and Zambia, we got a lift on the back of the truck from the same company the guys did their Lion Walk, which by the way was great apparently and the photos look amazing. Sitting at the back of the truck, Kasey again said to me, she feels naughty for sitting at the back of the truck! :)
