My First Bungy Jumping Experience: A Few Seconds Of Insane Courage

Fear had almost overpowered me. All excitement had momentarily turned into an undeniable panic. Things became far worse, when someone else jumped before me and screamed their guts out.

It is one of those cities in the world that never sleeps. Its energy hits you in the face and the madness grows on you over time. Everywhere you turn in Kuala Lumpur there is blocked traffic, crowded sidewalks, annoying taxi-drivers and smoggy air. But the good thing is, Kuala Lumpur is not short of quick and accessible getaways or, of Zen Retreats!
