I love the feeling of "falling" on a big roller coaster... so the thought of having this "rush" increased exponentially by jumping off a cliff or a bridge is something to strong to pass up. I'll hold off this bucket list item until I have finished my athletic days, but it is certainly one that I am looking forward to.
I cannot remember exactly when I first heard of bungee jumping, but it probably had to do with my childhood love of James Bond. I wanted to be Bond for most of my childhood- and his jump in the opening sequence of the film GoldenEye in where Bond jumps over the edge of a dam in Russia was extremely exhilarating to a nine-year old.
Even today, it is a scene worth watching again -- so check out the link here!
