Dear Amy, Wow A BUNGEY jump. Felt a little bit sick watching you do it, and hearing the scream. Was the cackling you or the person filming it??Queenstown looks picturebook. Friends of our eloped there and have fond memories. Glad to hear that your bones are intact. How about the other peolpe around you when you were falling off the chairlifts? David Tom and Pete are in Falls Creek at the moment and I am at home with Mark who has exams next week, so we are very jealous of all snow bunnies.....Good luck to you and good to see your pictures. Lots of Love Aunty Wendy

Great to see your snowboarding adventures in NZ. Views were spectacular! Can't believe you would bungee jump again! Crazy! But at least it probably is 100% safer than in Bali!
