I survived!

The bungy was so fun.  The bungy cord was attached to my feet and I went off head first.  The scariest part was waiting for my turn and then when I was at the very top having to go off.  I told the guy I might need a little push to help me out. 

I got pictures and everything!

It was in a beautiful setting, with cliffs and a lake below.  I tried to touch the water, but my bungy didn't quite make it that far.  If I was ever going to bungy I would have to do it there.  And New Zealanders invented bungy jumping. 

Now I'm ready for skydiving.  My hubby said if I couldn't bungy, how was I going to sky dive?  So now that I have conquered the bungy, there is no stopping me.  My hubby was so funny.  He kept egging me on to do it, even though he had no intention of doing it.  I am the daredevil in the family. 

Today we saw the coolest sheep show.  We saw all sorts of wooly sheep and then we saw one of them get sheared.  Then they had sheep dogs come in and they walk on top of the sheep.  It was the craziest thing.  And then we saw a demonstration of a sheep dog herding sheep and then a wool carding demonstration.

And then I also went down a hill in a ball called a ZORB.  (also invented in New Zealand).  It was pretty fun.

Tomorrow at the crack of dawn we are on our way to Australia to see the Great Barrier Reef. 

Woo hoo!

New Zealand words:
trolley is cart
lift is elevator
cabinet food is what they call pre made foods like muffins or cakes behind the glass in a cafe

Oh, I tried some Vegamite,  to all of those Aussies and New Zealanders that love it, I have to say, I don't think my tongue will ever touch it again.  It smells awful and tastes how it smells.
