There were 4 tracks to choose from - beginner, scenic, intermediate and advance. We went for the scenic track first where my friends and I were busy racing through it and totally didn't notice the scenic view. Hehe..
Round 2 - we went for the advance track which was very challenging and much steeper than the earlier one. I was quite surprise that this time we finished the course lightning quick. Shows how steep it was and how fast we were going.
Then we went offroad where we get to drive the 4x4 vehicle through a challenging terrain. Most of us have never went offroading before so we were guided through each step of the way. There were many heart-stopping moments there alright! And again, I won't spoil it here :)
The ultimate challenge would've been the bungy jump off the Auckland Bridge. However there were change of plans so we went SkyJumping instead. SkyJump is where we jump off the SkyTower in Auckland (something like our KL Tower) at a height of 192m!
I was filled with nerves as I was geared up and went on the elevator to reach the SkyJump platform. Did you know among 7 of us jumping that day, I was the first to go? I was afraid I would chicken out at the last minute. Now I'm proud to say I have jumped off a building and lived to tell about it!
I was informed by a New Zealander (who has tried both SkyJump and Bungy jump) that this one is more scary as it is way higher and we fall longer. Hmm..maybe one day? After going through all this, I've became an adrenaline-seeking girl! Now I'm looking forward for more adventures :D
I had the time of my life at New Zealand..made new friends, went to interesting, beautiful places and did many things I never thought I would do. As great as the trip was, my heart belongs at home...now that's another story :)
