Tourist Rope Swing FAIL [video]

Tourist Rope Swing

Screencapture from YouTube video

I am officially over the snow in the DC Metro area. After spending four hours in a snowy commute that normally takes about twenty minutes, I am ready for the fun that spring and summer brings. Thinking about summer brings back memories of the beach, tropical getaways, zip lining through rainforests, cliff diving, and rope swinging into warm waters.

Unfortunately for the guy in today's video, summer fun also brings some bruised ribs and an embarrassing YouTube video. I have a feeling he was not paying attention to the instructor when he went over the part about letting go before you hit the ship. I honestly hope he recovered from the pounding his body took from the ship rail.

If you know of a funny travel or destination related video you would like to share, leave a comment or tweet me at @patrickObatu. You may find it as our next Video of the Day.
