    Blue pools bridge jumping

    February 28, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Via a 20 minutes walk we got from the parking place by the main highway to a junction where two rivers met and several swing bridges brought us lastly to one bridge where you had deep enough water below to jump into.

    The bridge was about 5 to 10 meters high, the water about 5 to 10 degrees cold I guess. And as much as I loved jumping from above, I did it three times. Unfortunately I jumped of the last time in a little wrong angle which made me hit the water more diagonal than straight.
