THE NEVIS BUNGY JUMPTHE NEVIS BUNGY JUMPTHE NEVIS BUNGY JUMP

THIS IS THE POD SUSPENDED OVER A MASSIVE VALLEY.
HI ALL!

WELL TRAVELED TO QUEENSTOWN NEXT, DID NOT LIKE THIS TOWN THAT MUCH, WAS REALLY BUSY, BIG TOURIST TOWN JUST LIKE BLACKPOOL. THE PEOPLE WERE NOT VERY FRIENDLY AT ALL. THIS TOWN IS A PLACE FOR ADRENALINE JUNKIES, LOTS OF THINGS TO DO LIKE SKY DIVES, BUNGI JUMPS AND OTHER CRAZY THINGS. MY MATE DID THE SECOND BIGGEST BUNGI JUMP IN THE WORLD, CALLED THE NEVIS. TAKE A LOOK AT PICS. I DID NOT DO IT BUT DID GO AND WATCH. THE JUMP IS OVER A BIG VALLEY, WERE YOU JUMP FROM A POD SUSPENDED BY WIRES. TO GET TO THIS POD YOU HAVE TO TAKE A CABLE CAR ACROSS. I WENT TO THIS POD BUT COULD NOT JUMP, I HATE THAT KIND OF THING, TELL US WHAT YOU THINK.

GLENORCHY IS A SMALL TOWN CLOSE TO QUEENSTOWN. DECIDED TO GO ON A DAY WALK THERE UP MOUNT ALFRED. GOT GREAT VIEWS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN ALPS. THIS IS ALSO AN AREA WHERE THE LORD OF THE RINGS WAS FILMED. THE SCENES WERE 'ISENGARD' WAS FILMED.THE WALK UP THE MOUNTAIN WAS QUITE STEEP AT SOME POINTS, ON ALL FOURS SCRAMBLING UP THE ROCKS NEAR THE TOP. WELL WORTH
