waitomo caves and bungy madness
i didn't even realize jake had these on his computer---these were two of the most fun things we did in new zealand: the glow worm caves and bungy jumping. in waitomo, we basically hung around in a HUGE cave for hours and loved it. jake was seriously in his element. our guide wasn't the best photographer....as you can see, a lot of the pictures are blurry. other pictures are their stock photos, which i think are pretty awesome. as far as bungy jumping goes, ehhh i don't even know what to say about it. i was SO scared---and anyone who truly knows me would normally think that this would be something that i would be so excited about. but i honestly was almost crying. i would rather go skydiving any day. it was fun though, in the end, after the initial shock wore off. ha! just watch in the video how QUIET i am. so not like me. i mean, i can't even remember what i was thinking about, but i was so freaking scared. *disclaimer: the wet suits we had to wear in the caves...well, the entire outfit really, made me look HUGE. i was so embarrassed, seriously. but i'm putting them up anyway (just like i put myself in a bathing suit up in the samoa post) because I DO NOT CARE ANYMORE! the experience was worth it.
