Today I went ZORBING! I've been wanting to do this for a large portion of my life, probably since I was ten or twelve. I mean, who wouldn't want to be rolled down a hill like a gerbil in a giant plastic ball? Essentially that's what Zorbing is. They strapped me down kind of like DaVinci's  human anatomy picture, hands and legs apart, body in the centre. I got rolled down the hill, heals over head, doing backfilps and cartwheels and gyroscoping until i hit the bottom. On my second go, I chose to have some water added to the fun, and I also chose not to be strapped in this time. I went in free fall on a zig zag track and felt myself being tumbled around inside my globe, getting so much momentum that I was sometimes scooped up to the top and thrown down with a splash. This was easily the highlight of an amazing visit to New Zealand.

Wow...that's nasty! I bet there was dried up puke in the ball :)

Looks like fun.
