There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron

Bridge Swing

I was feeling pretty good after my zipline across the Victoria Falls Gorge. As I was making my way across the bridge to it's center though, my heart starting beating like a jackrabbit. My true test of adrenaline style adventure was about to begin...
As my number was photographed and logged, the men running the bungee asked me if I wanted to do the swing first, or the bungee jump. Never having done either before in my life, I felt like the Bridge Swing would be the less stressful and scary of the two.

All I focused on was my breathing as the straps were being tightened around my waist. I could hear nothing around me as I inched my way to the edge of the platform.
Three....Two...One....

I'll let you be the judge of how it went.
