Day 137 – Signing up for a bungy jump as the “free” person in a BOGOF offer

Back to Queenstown today and our last day with our little Jucy before dropping it off tomorrow. A while ago, John mentioned that he wanted to do a bungy jump and to be honest, I didn’t think he was being serious. If you had asked me in the morning whether I would do one, my answer straight off would have been NO! I wouldn’t even have to think twice about it. That is until we discovered that with our Jucy camper we could get a BOGOF offer on the Bungy and Swing combo at the Ledge which overlooks Queenstown.

I was up for the swing but not the bungy. Working out prices, it would have been cheaper for me to book this BOGOF offer with John than for John to book the combo and for me to pay separately for the swing. So we flashed our Jucy keys and booked ourselves in for the first bungy and swing of the day tomorrow. I’m not sure whether I’ll go through with it. I made them note down that if I decided not to go ahead with it John could do the second jump if he wanted to. But I fear that I may be slightly peer pressured into it when I get there.

After booking the bungy, we walked around Queenstown and we can see why it is labelled as a party town. We spent the afternoon reading by the beach. It was a really nice day and the view over the lake was stunning.  Lying on the beach and eavesdropping into a few conversations, it seemed as though almost everyone on the beach was hungover from partying last night or planning a night out tonight. There were a lot of English accents about!

In the evening, we headed to the nearest DOC site for our last night in the Jucy. We made fish finger sandwiches and watched an awful Segal film.
