After going through a few rough years, I was determined to live life again. Something I have always wanted to do was to go white water rafting. One problem…I didn’t know anyone that wanted to go…so one day I just happen to mention it while at the gym with Andrea…and waalahh! She wanted to go! So we picked at day and made our reservations. I was so excited….only to get sick right before were supposed to go. Ugh. Luckily, the rafting place let us re-schedule for the following week. I realized that I was so unprepared for “outdoor” activities…I didn’t have the proper shoes, clothes, hat, etc. But, after a few little shopping endeavors I was all suited up for my day on the river 🙂 ok, well like 4 hours, but still. So, hopped on a bus along with 40 other people and took a 10 minute drive to our drop off destination. They gave us a quick safety lesson (basically, don’t be an idiot and listen to your guide). We put on life vests, hauled the raft to the river, and away we went!
I must say…this was one of the most fun things I have ever done. EVERY single rapid I would be laughing so hard I couldn’t barely paddle. I immediately wanted to go again 🙂 Who knew I was such a thrill seeker 🙂
