Wordless Wednesday: Rafting in Rotorua

I’m not much of a daredevil, but once, during a holiday in France, Ahmed and I went rafting. Though I was a bit nervous beforehand – especially when our instructor started warning us for all kinds of accidents that could happen if we didn’t follow his orders – it was quite an experience.

Although New Zealand is a paradise for adventurous sports like white water rafting, we have never done such activities, and I don’t think we are going to any time soon. Let’s just blame it on Maria, okay? No questions about whether I want to jump from a plane or raft down a 7-meter waterfall.

But watching other people do it – yeah, why not? It makes for some interesting photos. We made this trip to Rotorua in the beginning of June. It was one of the first (and few, we would later realize) really cold but sunny days, and Maria had just started to walk. A fun day watching other people doing crazy stuff!
