the crazy girl who jumped off a 45m tower

It was hard to get up on this Friday morning when we've spent the evening drinking and dancing away. I still can't get the picture of the gorgeous surfers out of my head. When we finally got our fat @sses off our bed, we caught some sunshine at the pool and beachside of the Bali Hyatt.
We checked out just before 1pm and caught a free (again it's free yey!) shuttle to the Grand Hyatt. Now when we got there, we were disappointed. We had to wait sometime before our room was ready, and we had to follow up twice before we were finally checked in. I was so tired that I fell asleep at the Lounge. Gracee had to wake me up to remind me that we have a a pick up coming soon. Only at that time were we checked in. We were given the next available room, which wasn't the one originally booked for us, so I was again disappointed.
We went to the lobby and shortly, our pick up arrived. We had to pick up another group of "jumpers" from the Hard Rock Hotel and on the way there we discovered Legian road... the most interesting road in Bali - well, aside from Kuta. There we're several bars and great stores, again traffic was pretty heavy and it would be best to traverse this place by foot. It was a great, serendipitous discovery for us.
We finally arrived at the AJ Hacket bungy and we began our registration and strapping process. I went first so Gracee can take my picture from below. On the way up, I shared the elevator ride with Tara from Darwin, Australia. She's a nice girl, she was going to do the bicycle jump.
It was simply exhillerating! It was a mix between the sudden phobia and the inner struggle to conquer it; it was the feel of the breeze, the hazy blue sky and the beautiful sunset.
After our jump, we headed back to Legian to shop some more, dinner and play billiards at Aquarius Restaurant and hotel, we later had ice cream at Gelato in Legian before heading back to the hotel, equipped with our freshly purchased midnight snacks.
When we arrived back to the hotel, we were surprised that there was a turndown sweets of chocolate eclairs with a note from the Executive Chef, welcoming us, and later we found another note from the GM, again, both signed (not printed signatures). And this was the beginning of how the Grand Hyatt has redeemed themselves and we enjoyed the rest of the stay... and yeah, we were upgraded with Club access. :)
