So today I tried 3 different ways to kill myself!
First was zorbing, which was not nearly the adrenaline rush I was expecting, but was awesome fun. I did the "Zydro", which is where they put water in the zorb with you so it is like a waterslide but waaaayyyyy cooler.
From there I went on to the Agrodome, where they have the swoosh. Essentially I was strapped into a hangliding 'sack', and winched up to the bungy platform, then let go to fly like superman! That was also good fun, but proved unsuccessful in killing me also.
Finally today I went on a expedition for a couple of hours through some underground caves. We abseiled down a 35m hole into the cave, then went down a flying fox. From there we jumped into the underground river on rubber tyre tubes, and floated around the river looking at glow worms. It was soooooo cool (literally, as the water was a bout 11 degrees!). After ditching the tubes, we climbed, floated and walked through the river and mini rapids, and finished up climbing up two waterfalls to get back out to the surface.
Was one of the best experiences of my life, although the cuts and rope burn on my hands are not so much fun now, it was totally worth it!!! Again and quite obviously since I am writing this, the caving also did not kill me.
Still having some issues with photos, but will upload as soon as I can. Off to the pub now for a well earned beer.
Tomorrow should be pretty quiet, think I will wait till I hit the south island before I try too many other activities which may kill me.
