An 81-year-old woman has jumped the Auckland bungee jump twice.
People on flights to Aucklandconcerned about doing the city’s famous bungee jump could take courage from the story of one octogenarian.
Wilmina van Hoof has taken on the jump despite being 81 years old and enjoyed it so much that she did it twice, Stuff.co.nz reported.
Mrs van Hoof was excited and told the newspaper she loved the experience, something that was overheard by an anonymous donor who paid for her to do it again.
“I felt like I was flying like an eagle, it was everything I imagined and more,” she said.
However, her daughter Tia O’Reilly was not so sure, who said she was a “wreck” during the jump but thought her mum was an “inspiration”.
Many people could be planning to take flights to Auckland and other parts of New Zealand in the future as Gregg Anderson, general manager of western long-haul markets at Tourism New Zealand, explained it is full of exciting things to do.
