First it was little hard to breath, but I liked it. If it wasn't for the money I would've do it again. Now it might sound silly but I think bungee jumping is way more dangerous than a ... skydiving.
Skydiving is waaaaay more fun!
I take it you did a tandem jump with an instructor strapped to your back?
The free fall is the best feeling ( I can see how those pro-skydivers get addicted to the adrenaline rush) in the world and its cool taking in the scenery once the parachute goes up!
I have tio admit though, I had a real crappy landing - the instructor told me to keep my knees up so I didn;t break my legs (or whatever) on landing ...but I didnt hear him when he said to put them down and we ended up falling in a heap on the floor.
If that wasn't bad enough then a gust of wind picked the parachute up and dragged us both backwards for about 20 meteres!!
Its all on video.....I really should edit that last bit off!
