While in Chiang Mai, Thailand a few weeks ago, Laura decided that she needed to go bungee jumping and cross it off her bucket list. Obviously, I couldn’t let her do it by herself, because that would be just rude.
So after a tiny bit of research and a brief conversation with our hotel receptionist, we were booked for that afternoon. A van picked us up for the 30-minute drive out to “Jungle Bungy Jump” and the rest of the story is in the video… Enjoy!

I’m pretty sure I was still shaking while holding this cert of courage.
“Building your character” was my parents catch-all phrase for everything. Growing up, I hated practicing the piano, sharing a room, fixing fence, and picking ditches at our farm. This list could go on and on (I know, my life was so hard).
We are oceans away from anything familiar, roaming the world, yet still feel a sense of obligation to do or see certain things.
I am not sure if we view doing this thing as a rite of passage, or not doing it as a potential future regret. Either way, there is so much hype wrapped up in specific world-renowned places and a substantial amount of undefined pressure to visit.
My generic Target brand, broad spectrum, sport performance, FDA-approved, SPF 30, UVA/UVB protectant, sweat and water resistant, $7.99 USD partially full sunscreen bottle, that we squeezed into two 100ml bottles (for our carry-on limits) is now gone.
