Auckland, New Zealand, Travel


Do you see that?

I’m not referring to the Sky Tower.  I’m referring to the other thing.  Do you see it?  No?  Here – let me point it out to you:

You still don’t see it?!  Ugh.  Fine – I’ll zoom in:

Do you see it now?!  That, my lovely readers, is a human being who has willingly flung themselves off the top of the Sky Tower.


I just happened to have my camera handy and took a “Hail Mary” photo in the hopes that I’d capture the SkyJump on film.

And I did.

This isn’t the first time that I’ve seen someone perform this crazy feat.  Once, I was sitting in my hairdresser’s, when I heard a faint sound.  It got louder.  Sort of like this: aaaaaaiiiiiieeeeeAAAAIIIIIEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I looked to my left, just in time to see a man in a jumpsuit come flying into view.

So, if you like to fling yourself off buildings or enjoy watching people who do, then you need to come to Auckland.  We’re definitely out of the ordinary over here 🙂

  1. There’s a big mattress at the base with an “X” marking the spot 🙂 Just kidding! They have a landing station {or landing pad?} down at the bottom, and bungy cord catches in time so that they slow waaaay down and are lowered onto the pad. Still crazy!

  2. Well, it’s one way to get your blood moving in the morning! Maybe I should suggest this to the City of Indianapolis… we could start something similar, like repelling down the Pyramids! That’d be fun!
