The Big Thrill: Kayaking at Rapids Camp
My body hurts. I can feel every bone in my body. I do not even care that you think this is an exaggeration (hehe). Over the weekend, I decided that my life was not exciting enough. So Mr. Man and I went Kayaking.
I figured it would only be a few hours, put some kilometers on the car, get that muscle tone and overall act like a hyperactive kid.
Two and a half hours from Nairobi, lots of wrong turns later, and we found ourselves at Rapids Fall Camp in Sagana.
By the way, the scenery on the way to the Camp is magnificent. I would have spent the night right there in the open had it not been for the uncertainty of what the night brings.
There in the path was a Railway line that made for good photography. I wonder if they still have trains in this area of the woods.
River Tana is beautiful…dirty, beautiful and scary.
When the moment of truth came, to face this water giant or go home, we decided to risk it. Please note that none of us swim.
Did I get the excitement I was looking for? Yes! Would I do it again? Ehhh…why not?!
It was fun. It was tiring. I felt fear and the blood rushing in my veins. It was a statement for me, that I can conquer anything I put my mind to.
For that one Sunday afternoon, surrounded by endless waters, I was in control and my spirit guide was free.
Live a little, laugh a little.
