Bungee jumping

«A lot of people who jump out of a plane in a parachute are afraid to go bungee jumping,» said Angelos Evlambiou. He belongs to the LiquidBungee team, which has made a habit of jumping off Halkida Bridge. «And the fear grows stronger when you see the ground rushing toward you and you stop just a few meters above it,» he added. Bungee jumping, he said, offers a unique opportunity for «someone to get the sense of the void.» But quite a few do it because they think they’ll be cool that way or to be able to brag about it to friends.» However, bungee jumpers have changed over the years, according to Evlambiou. «Some time ago, bungee jumping was all the rage. Today, you don’t hear of it that often. But everyone knows that people go to Halkida to go bungee jumping.»
