Bungee Jumping is Scary!

I would have thought that skydiving from 14 000 ft, scuba diving with sharks, or surfing with large waves, might have been one of my scariest adventures. However, it was bungee jumping that I have found the scariest.

In Inje, South Korea, we decided to do our first ever bungee jump! The jump was only about 60 meters. I am not afraid of heights, so at the time I was just super excited to try this new adventure. I was told to walk off the ledge and just drop on the count of 3. Below me I could see nothing but water. It seemed like a fairly long way down. I told myself not to think about it too much and just do it! And that is exactly, what I did.

We did it!

Now, when I recall my experience, I keep thinking I cannot believe that I actually jumped. The scariest part is voluntarily stepping over the ledge and losing all control. Interestingly, bungee jumping, has been the scariest yet most thrilling adventure for me!

Bungee jumping is really awesome fun and everyone should try it at least once. But now that I have experienced it, it is the one activity that I would honestly hesitate to do again. Why? The thought of jumping over a ledge and ending up upside down in the air is quite terrifying!

Wild Whitewater Rafting in South Korea

The first time Jason and I ever went rafting was in the Naerincheon Stream of Inje, South Korea. Back in Canada, I had always had a strong desire to try my hand at rafting. Unfortunately, the opportunity never arose. When we came to Korea, it was definitely the beginning of a new and adventurous chapter in our lives! The first big adventure we embarked on was rafting. We met some really nice Koreans, who also shared the same enthusiasm for adrenaline-pumping activities like us. Our rafting instructor was an extremely fun, knowledgeable and entertaining guide.

The Naerincheon Stream has some of the best rapids and surrounding landscapes in South Korea. The quality of rapids are so amazing, that the stream was chosen as the location for the 2007 World Rafting Competition.

As we rode the waves down this magnificent stream, we enjoyed the white waters as well as the beautiful nature. Our rafting trip could not have been better. It was extremely fun. It was one of the best outdoor activities we had ever done!
