White water rafting

On Saturday Mrs McConville and I got up early to go white water rafting. It was a long drive to the Ayung river but we got to see lots of villages and things along the way. We drove past lots of rice fields too.

When we got there we got life jackets and helmets and were introduced to our guide. His name was Kobek and he was very funny. To get down to the boats we had to walk down about 300 steps, some of them were very steep and they were a bit slippery.

There were two other people in our boat and they were on their honeymoon. They had come all the way from Holland. We were given all our safety instructions and off we went. We had to do a bit of paddling along the way but when we were going through the rapids we had to hold on tight. It was awesome fun! We saw some amazing scenery along the way and the water was just beautiful!

After our journey ended we had to walk up another 250 steps to get to the restaurant to have lunch, no wonder my legs are so sore today!
