White Water Rafting

This happened in Australia near Cairns.  It was part of a three part adventure.  Went hot air ballooning in the morning, skydiving in the afternoon and ended with white water rafting.  Being a single person I was put into the large group which was a bunch of Koreans (I believe).  They didn't understand English that well so understanding the commands that the guide shouted had to be converted into hand gestures but once that was established we were on our way.  I took the position in the back of the raft and occasionally would be splashed by one of the oars in front of me.  For the longest time we were ahead of the other raft so we got to experience the rapids first which was awesome.  We never flipped the raft but we did get stuck up on some rocks and took a while to dislodge ourselves.  At one point we started paddling back up the rapids which was kind of cool.  The trek down the river was really fun but got to be exhausting when some of the other people in the raft stopped paddling but I would do it all over again and can't wait till my next rafting trip.
