On March 3, 2016, I proposed to Rejoice Binta Abbas, a Cameroonian whom I met in Yaounde, Cameroon on January 23, 2015.
I proposed to Rejoice on the Victoria Falls Bridge, which lies in the no-man's land between Zambia and Zimbabwe, overlooking Victoria Falls.
I asked her if she "wanted to take the plunge" and join me on a lifetime of adventure.
Watch this video to see what happened after that:
She said, "Yes."
To set the tone for our future and get us off on the right foot, I pulled her over the edge with me and we experienced a free fall of over 100 meters (330 ft).
I hadn't told her what we were doing.
She had seen people doing a zip line and thought that a cord would materialize right below us when we stepped off the edge.
So as we fell down toward the Zambezi River below, she thought something had gone horribly wrong!
Then, at last second, the swing transferred our momentum and we swung like a pendulum over the Zambezi River with the spray of the Victoria Falls covering our smiling faces.
Thank you to Victoria Falls Bungee for making this special moment happen!
Now that you saw how we got engaged, check out our wedding!
