We've been doing the big expensive tourist things this week. First stop: Zorbs. Yep. You get inside a big beach ball with water in it and roll down a hill. It was actually pretty hilarious and fun. Amalia really wanted the pictures. So I have plenty to share:
It isn't actually a huge hill, but that is us in the ball:
Here is Amalia's graceful exit of the Zorb:
Then had us jump for the picture but we didn't quite get it together. I could photoshop it but we are sitting in our car using free internet at a petrol station right now and I just don't have the gumption. Nor can I see my screen very well.
Today we did Bungee Jumping! We ended up buying the pictures for that too. They were too funny. We couldn't pass them up. And it came with a video! We were at Taupo Bungee. It looked really legit compared to the crane on the side of the road with a bungee that we saw earlier.
So here I am, ready to jump. It was scary as right on that ledge ("as" is NZ slang. Everything is sweet as, cool as, scary as, whatever). I went into the water about to my waist. As you can see, my hair is all nappy and sweaty because I had been on a run, but I counted the river dip as my shower. A very expensive shower.
Here is my video. Let it be noted that we were not aware that we were being filmed.
So fun right! Here is Amalia's game face:
Just got the top of her head got wet.
It was really pretty great. Fast, but great. We actually HAD to buy the pictures because I don't remember a whole lot of the falling part.
