While visiting Cape Town, South Africa for work, I wanted to do something to make the trip memorable (beyond the obvious of being in South Africa for the first time). I convinced (with very little difficulty) one of my co-workers to travel 7 hours (each way) to Bloukrans Bridge one of the highest bungie jumping locations in the world (216m, with 5 seconds of freefall).

On my second trip to South Africa, my memorable moment was going to Rocking the Daisies, a huge three-day music festival that took place at a wine farm about an hour away from Cape Town.
