My First Bungee Jump

Before I did my first skydive, I remember reading about the best skydiving locations around the world. It was exhilarating.

After my first skydive, I thought nothing could be more adventurous than this; however, then, I bungee jumped from Bloukran’s bridge South Africa. I booked myself for a bungee jump with Face Adrenaline, and I must say that this was the most terrifying experience I have ever had. Having said that, let me tell you that I haven’t met anyone who has bungee jumped and not loved it!
