Waiau Bridge, Bungy Jumping Capital of the world.

The Bungy Jumping bridge and the wide river valley beyond.



The Waiau River Bridge, South Canterbury NZ, is where the man L.J.Hackett runs his world famous Bungy Jumping, the young trill seeking tourists throw themselves of this high bridge tied only by their ankles to an elastic cable so they just dip their heads into the river way below. Not my thing at all, I wouldn't consider bungy jumping for an instant. no one was jumping while we were there.

Looks like a very high bridge. In the summer people are jumping in Helsinki from a huge crane in the park Kaivopuisto. I have seen lots of jumps but they are not as terrifying as this one:-) And only seen..

I might enjoy watching, but you won't find me jumping off a bridge! Gorgeous photos.

It seems different countries, different cultures, we really can decide things in the same understanding of the difference!
