Only the cutest guy there would do!!! He was trying to convince me that I wanted to jump too, but I assured him that I preferred to have both my feet stuck to "terra firma"! I wouldn't have jumped for "all the tea in China", even attached to him - & he was lovely!!!

Waiting for Irina to get strapped up & jump. I was wondering what I would say to Bodgan if anything went wrong......

Irina may jump off bridges. but she is a very sound sleeper.....which was great because I never had to worry about waking her up, I could take a bath, go to get some breakfast, anything!

lach lach lach were you really worried??? you did not look worried. my mom when i told her that i jumped she asked if you did not try to stop me. but bogdan did not ask me that.
to tell you the truth, signing all those papers before the jump, the ones where you say you take responsibility for all the risks, including dieing , was kind of nerve wreaking .

sheena, how were you after vancouvver? i was crazy tired. i did not realized i could be so tired but i was. at around 22 in the evening my lights would go out but i am all better now. Razz

yes, i am a very sound sleeper. if i am tired you can vacuum the room and me and i will still be sleeping.

here are some photos from the town

I was trying not to look worried (glad I succeeded!) as I thought you might have enough on your mind at that time!! As you really wanted to do it, are over 21 & legally of sound mind, I wouldn't have tried to stop you, though I still think you are crazy - brave but crazy, dear friend!!!

I was very tired arriving home on the Monday evening, but I slept well & was "all bright eyed & bushy tailed" on Tuesday. Didn't sleep so well for the next few nights, so I was a bit tired for a few days. I've been pretty ok since - in fact in work today one of our volunteers told me how well I'm looking since my holiday & that it must have done me good!

At least one of you had enough presence of mind to access her God-given common sense! LOL

i have to say that except the actual jump moment when i was scared out of my mind all the rest of the experience was awesome.
and i made me feel, what i think i can consider as " high ". i just felt extraordinary all day. i kind of felt like smiling all the time i remembered i jumped.
Um....what else would you expect after having your brain slammed against the inside of your skull, multiple times as a result of the G-forces in that jump. Gee, Irina, if you really needed to get your spine straightened out, or to adjust that crick in your neck, you could have seen a chiropracter much more easily, and it probably would have been covered under your travel insurance, LOL. But, oh no, lol, you had to jump off an incredibly high bridge. Razz

I'm really glad Sheena accompanied you because somebody needed to inform the authorities, not to mention your husband, if you'd gotten yourself injured, not that it would have been all that pleasant for Sheena, however, Rolling Eyes lol.

Irina, you are stone nuts! crazy There is no way I would ever jump off a bridge with my ankles secured with a bungee cord, LOL. My brain is wacky enough as it is. I don't need any help with that, LOL.

Irina, you are so brave and I just feel like hug you immediately... Inclassable37 But as Im thinking, although Im not really attracted by bungee jumping... I would still more likely jump of a bridge than ask a cute guy if I can hug him... hide8up

She wasn't attached by her ankles, it was a harness around the trunk of her body - that made me feel a little happier!!

Irina thank you so much for your stories and raports Very Happy it's great to read them. You were jumping off a bridge but what was below it? A river? Something else? I'm just curious what views you had Wink and the cute-hugging-guy story was so... cute Very Happy

Aaaah....a "safer" approach, LOL. Did she jump feet first and, if so, did her legs get longer afterwards? LOL

When bungee jumping first became all the rage, the only way it was done was by encasing the persons ankles in a special harness which was attached to the bungee cord device, and you jumped head-first off the bridge. Shocked Rolling Eyes Now, for that one had to be completely insane to do it. I'm glad they have modified the proccess, but that's not saying I'd pay any amount of money to try it, lol. I would think, though, that there would still be a hell of a jolt to one's brain, what with all that bouncing up and down on the bungee chord.

mary, you can jump attached to the ankles or by your body. since it was my first time i was too scared to go head first. but to tell you the truth i might try it some day given the opportunity.

marta, down there was a river. around was the forest. it was a very beautiful view. very beautiful !!!!

shena , i really did not suspected that you thought i am crazy !!!

come on titi and li , cute guys are not as scary as high bridges !!!!
