    I loved reading every bit of this blog, it got me all chuckling because it brought back memories of my white water rafting experience. I loved it, always love the adrenaline rush. I could live this day anytime. Nice one Cali?

    How cool that you have all these photos, even of your capsize! White water rafting terrifies me but I have done it several times…and fallen out too…and survived! It was scary but made a forever memory and great travel story as things like these usually do. Nice post, and happy travels! 🙂

    Haha I really enjoyed reading your post, you are quite the funny writer! Also the pictures really add to it as well. I love rafting but I haven’t had any extreme encounters yet where everyone fell off, makes it more interesting though.
    Have a nice day!

    Now this is a true adventure. I’ve always wanted to do white water rafting and this makes me want to do it even more. What an incredible experience for you. The pictures show just how large those rapids were. Good for you for being so brave!

    That sounds like quite an adventure, and you have a great story to share even if you never raft again. I plan to give rafting a shot sometime this year. We have a nearby river that has some awesome rapids (hopefully no “Bad Palce”).

    Being a huge adrenaline junkie I would be willing to give this a go! Although I can’t deny the fact that I would be pretty freaked if my raft completely flipped over. I’ve only ever been white water rafting in the states and it doesn’t seem the same as your experience.

      I think the rafting experience is different each time you go. Depending on how the river feels that day, haha! I love adrenaline inducing activities, but I also love breathing!

    Great story, what an adventure! I would love to go rafting someday, as I love feeling this adrenaline. The Nile looks a quite interesting place to do it, your pics of this adventure are also great, made me want even more to have the same experience.

    Just by the looks of it, it was one hell of a ride. Good to know that no one got hurt. I would want to try this too, but I think that I need to start on a smaller scale. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your adventurous ride.

    So crazy!! I give you a lit of credit. I mean, I live white water rafting but I dunno if I could do it with man eating predators in the river. But I am glad you lived to tell the tale because I lived it. And you never have to do it again. Thank God!

    The best part of this post…was the first comment from your Dad!! Love that sooo much! 🙂 But, really, this was an outstanding read! I have zero interest in white water rafting..and your experience completely confirmed that for me. Still, I could not help but keep reading to hear what happened next. Story telling blogs are my favorite and I really enjoyed every minute of yours!
