Swing style Bungee jump off a bridge

When you travel you encounter pretty random people, events and things that you never expected. This event is one of them. We were hiking along a river canyon in Northern Europe when we heard loud screaming above us. Sure enough, someone had jumped off a bridge and was swinging above the river.

We took a break and decided to wait for the next brave girl who would perform her own Bungee swing jump. Two professional guys were operating the ropes on the bridge.

Looks like fun, and for some reason, not quite as daredevilish as a Bungee jump straight down.
