Note: You will have to climb around 350 stairs to reach the jumping deck. And take the same stairs to come down.

The view from the jumping deck is beautiful. I was amazed at how the Indian Ocean, Durban coastline, and the entire city merge together in one frame.

The Jump...

On reaching the Bungee Jump point, I looked down and straight. At that very moment, the reality struck me and I told to myself, "I can't do this. This Bungee Jump is beyond my scope".

It was windy and scary. I stood at the edge, thinking "Should I Bungee Jump from here or go back". Before I could react to my thoughts, the guy pushed me from behind, I screamed and was heading down straight into the Digital Screen and the stadium bowl.

That was my first experience and introduction to the world of Adrenaline rush and Adventure Sports. The sense of achievement I felt after Bungee Jumping from the roof of a football stadium kick-started my journey towards being a free-spirited soul.

"Either you learn from your own mistakes or by the mistakes of other" My cousin and I ate five Cholle-Bhature each filled with oil, butter, and fat from an in-famous shop in Lajpat Nagar, New Delhi.
