David Bakhtiari bungee jumping in New Zealand

Green Bay Packers offensive lineman David Bakhtiari wasn't invited to the 2019 Pro Bowl, which will take place in Orlando next weekend, despite being a first-team All-Pro selection. So, he's using the off-season to take himself to new heights.

Bakhtiari posted some gorgeous photos on Instagram from his vacation Down Under as he participated in some high-flying adventures, including a stop at the Nevis Swing (billed as "the world's most famous swing") in Queenstown, New Zealand, on Thursday.

He also posted a photo of himself taking a bungee jump off the Kawarau Bridge in Otago, New Zealand, and a picture in what appears to be a helicopter from Milford Sound, New Zealand.

The best photos were posted in his Instagram story, showing Bakhtiari from above, leaping off the platform. 

Bakhtiari was named second-team All-Pro in 2016 and 2017 before the first-team nod this season, and yet his only Pro Bowl appearance came in 2016. He's obviously not allowing the snub to keep him from a pretty awesome vacation.

So what scares you more, Packers fans? Your star offensive lineman jumping from dizzying heights or your star quarterback swimming with sharks?
