the final adrenaline rush.

Today was our last day in Queenstown. For months we've talked about which activity we should do in the long list of "adventure tourism" this town has to offer. Today was the day to lay our cards on the table. I'd been talking about either paragliding or skydiving and Tyson was pretty keen on Bungy jumping. So, in a whimsical decision, we did it.

Luckily, I was able to bounce along on the bus out to watch Tyson swan dive 43 meters down to a river off of the Kawarau Bridge. He absolutely loved it. I was terrified just watching him.






Then we hopped into a little van and wound our way up to the top of Coronet Peak so I could run and fly off of the mountain paragliding. It was so great.














We leave tomorrow at 8am. I can't believe this part of the experience is already over. Its been great and I have so many memories to show for it. Today included. Goodbye, Queenstown.
