Mexico: Day 2 (Part 2)

April 11, 2011

Remember that “cool mode of transportation” I mentioned?  Well, imagine driving through the Mexican jungle in this:

Kirsten and I loved the wind in our hair and the sunshine on our smiling faces as we were whisked by various landscapes.

To me, the jungle is the pulse beat of the heart of a country.  Every sense is heightened once you enter and this was certainly the case for us.

After we arrived at our destination, it was time to get ready for our second jungle adventure of the day: zip lining.  The last time I had zip lined was in Cuba and I had loved every second of it!  It is exhilarating to feel, even if only for a brief second, like you are flying above the treetops.  The scenery was lusciously green; the perfect backdrop for our adrenaline pumping activity.

And of course I volunteered to go first!

Once we were all safely back on the ground, it was time for our third jungle adventure. . .

    That looks like a truly exhilarating experience!
    I am sure that you had a great experience due to all of the smiles that are in almost every photo.
    How many different platforms did you zip line to? Or maybe the better question was how long did it take you to complete it?
    Thanks for sharing your adventures!

      3 platforms! I should have mentioned that. It took about 30 minutes to do the whole thing, but of course it felt like 30 seconds. Definitely soooo exhilarating. 🙂

    Ahhh, the jungle, don’t you love everything about it?!

    And the photo of you and Kirsten up at the top made me laugh, you’re groping each other in those big mitts!

    Oh my gosh I get a rush just looking at those photos! I loved zip lining, but I’m honestly not sure I’d do it again. The zipping was amazing, but my fear of heights made the in between parts less than fun…

    Zip lining! Oooh, I’ve always wanted to try that. 😀

    You two look gorgeous by the way. The sun and the jungle really agrees with you!

    Zip lining is one of those things I never thought I’d do but have done twice and I love it. You got such great photos of you gliding through the jungle!

      I was okay with zip lining, but I definitely had a freak out when sky diving. If I hadn’t been pushed out of the plane, I’m not sure I would have jumped out myself.
