Queenstown, New Zealand
3.2.1... JUMP!I spent 4 mind-blowing months living in Queenstown. In New Zealand the main occupations are farming and tourism. My two born and raised Kiwi flatmates were Skydivers for a living, so naturally I couldn't leave the country without jumping the 15,000 feet myself. (I'm strapped onto my roommate Caleb in the photo above.)
I would call this a once in a lifetime experience, but I can't, because you'll want to do it all over again after you take the plunge and parachute down to the soft grass below. Surrounded by 5,000 foot mountain peaks and pools of crystal clear glacier water below, I can't think of a more perfect setting to go skydiving than in Queenstown.
