Went river rafting over the weekend with some friends. It was my first time! It was fun, but I think next time I should eat a big meal before. I started feeling restless towards the end.
I also have motion sickness so I was a little worried about that during the river rafting. Last year I went kayaking in San Diego & during the tour one of the tour guides had to take me back to the shore because I wasn’t feeling well at all. I also always take Dramamine before I board a plane & I can’t ride roller coasters. I need to stop getting myself into situations that make me nauseous. haha. It was fun nonetheless.
I bet everyone else wondered why everyone on our raft kept falling off. hah. It actually wasn’t even that deep. You can stand in the water for the most parts because there’s rocks underneath.
Oh! & I went cliff jumping with the girls! I’ve never done that before, but it was a tiny cliff. I’ve seen bigger ones when I went to Hawaii…& I didn’t do those!
& I finally overcame my fear of swimming in water that I can’t see clearly in! I have this phobia with lakes or rivers or just any water in general that I can’t see clearly in, but I did it! I probably won’t do that again any time soon, but I’m glad I overcame that. The water felt nice too because it was scorching hot. Thankfully it was so hot we dried off quick.
There were also 3 stops for rope swinging, but we missed the first one. The second one, Trisha got hurt ); so we kind of opted out of doing it & it was too crowded. The last one looked better, but I was kind of freaked because the current looked a little too strong & I weigh about 87 lbs. so surely I would probably wash away like a leaf. lol.
I wanted to bring my dslr because there are some areas where the scenery was extremely nice, but I’m glad I didn’t because it for sure would’ve been soaked from all the water in our rafts. I only brought the gopro which sufficed.
Overall, I had fun for my first time, but we were a little under prepared. Plus, I didn’t know what to expect since it was my first time. I want to do it again, but maybe next year. Next time I’ll know how to prepare for this thing.
Next plan: ATVing!!!!!!! ^_^
I wanted to upload a video, but my app isn’t letting me ); So here are photos for now! I still need to upload some videos from Hawaii. I’ll make it happen soon!
some of the photos are from my gopro. *rest of the photo credit is from Ivan & Alex D*
