{My Bucket List} Surviving from White Water Rafting

July 28, 2009

This was an exciting and quite memorable first water rafting experience at New World Rafting / Nouveau Monde Rafting with a bunch of awesome friends. The adventure package comes with round trip bus rides, 2 water rafting runs and 3 meals each day during your stay. The weather was not so nice on the first night at the campsite though. We had to set up the tent in the dark with brutally heavy rain. The camp ground is fully equipped with a central bar area where there's party and live music at night. There's also other activities such as beach volleyball, paintball, swimming pool, hot tub and fool's ball, in case you chicken out last minute.

The camp ground is also a bit small, tents are placed side by side with each other which is quite intimate but really, I want my privacy

Few of my friends actually got injured during this trip. One of them scarred her face because her goggle snapped when our raft flipped, just a centimeter away from her eye too! Another friend twisted her ankle in the water and also another friend got strangled by the rope when he was being rescued. He ended up having a giant scar around his neck for a good while. So, although water rafting is quite fun but it is also very intense and dangerous, I would probably not do it again.
