It’s as though the land is drinking the ocean. The tide is receding so fast that water pours off the reef, splashing over the backs of turtles and the passing fin of a shark. In just a couple of hours, around 400 square kilometres of reef will be exposed.

As I zip, in fact, as I zipline through the canopy of a Phuket jungle an old ditty comes to mind, “He floats through the air with the greatest of ease, this daring young man on the flying trapeze.”

I’m neither young nor daring but am absolutely moving through the air with great ease, if not speed, flashing along a cable strung between two ancient ironwood trees. The apparatus that allows this – a pulley attached to both the cable and a harness I’m wearing – used to be called a “flying fox” but in recent times the adrenaline thrills industry has sexed-up its name to “zipline”.

Russian President Vladimir Putin gives a press conference with French President at the Kremlin in Moscow on November 26, 2015. French President Francois Hollande is leading a diplomatic campaign to form a broad coalition against the Islamic State jihadists following the attacks in Paris, though his efforts are currently being hindered by a bitter standoff between Russia and Turkey over the shooting down of a Russian military plane.
