New Zealand, January 2002

Bungy (Click To Enlarge)
New Zealand was a great place to visit for three weeks in January. We did both the north and south island. Among other things, we sailed the Bay of Islands, rode jet boats, swam, snorkelled, rafted, bungyed, did the high ropes course, luge rode, hiked Fox Glacier, took a balloon ride, did a couple of overnight cruises including one on Milford Sound, and generally touristed around. The photos below should give you an idea of the trip. No climbing though.Rafting (Click To Enlarge)

Right: I take the plunge. Bungiiiiie! The original AJ Hacket Bungy bridge Queenstown. 43 metre free fall. Your heart races, the water rushes towards you, but the descent is surprisingly gentle. Check the Michael's Bungy Jump video clip (2 Meg, 25 seconds).

Left: I cling to the front of the raft as we head down the rapids of the Shotover River, Queenstown. That's Melissa in the back next to our guide. They were grade 3 to 4 rapids apparently.
