After hours I sweat, I jumped in this body of heaven 😌 Also, beard is now 4 weeks old
🌎 DAY 25 – Part D
📍Parque Amboro, Bolivia 🇧🇴
We swim for a little while and then look up to see a path you can walk up to get above the pool. Not proper paths, it looks like someone’s carved away at the edges of the waterfall to create a walkway. It looks like you can jump from them. Alban and I look at eachother and say ‘shall we?’ Yeh ok!’ almost at the same time. There are two heights, so we go for the lower one first.
We scale the path and stand at the edge, 4m up. It looks higher from up here, I hope it’s deep enough. 3, 2, 1... jump. My body plunges into the water, woah! That was seriously good. Alban goes next, he’s a big fan too. Now for the higher one. It’s a riskier climb because if you slip you could fall on the rocks just short of the pool. We edge our way along and make it to the jump point. It’s about 7 to 9 metres up, way scarier. Alban goes first this time and as he jumps he lets out a big ‘weeee!’. I go 2nd, preparing myself and wondering if my mum would approve of this. My palms sweat and then I just do it... two steps forward and a jump. I drop like a stone in the air and half-way down my mind catches up with what’s happening. Normally when you jump it’s so quick you just hit the water. Here you have time to realise you’re in freefall and your body shakes and panics in that second. I shout uncontrollably and then smack down into the water. That was absolutely insane, such an adrenaline-ride! My heart is beating faster and I still have that big smile. Mission complete, time to get dry and chill out.
Alban and I chat about travel, life and music for a good hour before its time to go back. We grab a photo of us before we leave, it’s too good not to.
