I would like to have had the courage to bungee jump but I have a fear of heights. Many years ago when it was first popular I was in Kuranda in the Appleton Tablelands and they were bungee jumping from a crane. I stood at the base and looked at it for such a long timebefore I accepted I was never going to doit and moved on.
I have never wanted to try something I am scared of. I simply can't understand jumping out of a perfectly good aeroplane or flinging oneself from a great height with rubber and rope around one's ankles.
Snakes - no problem . . . however, if it was a spider I would be off into the distance. I find that snakes feel so interesting - smoother than I expected and so muscular. I had a tiny baby snake get inside my jacket for warmth. So cute.
