The day before I flew to Australia from Bali, I did one of the most adventurous things I have done for a long time! I did a 16km white water rafting trip. After a months working in Bali designing Fairyloves exciting new range, I was most relieved to spend the day upon a beautiful river, flowing where it flowed and all the joy and fun that came with it. The nature that surrounded the river was breathtaking, rice paddies, mountains, and waterfalls. The water itself was beautifully clean and lovely and cool.
It was such a laugh. I have never really considered myself an outdoorsy, sporty kind of girl, though I do love to be in nature. But I can’t wait to go again. I went with my two lovely Balinese friends Ayu and Sri. They help me with my work in Bali, so it was really wonderful to do something so different and fun together.
We spent 2 and a half hours squealing, laughing, paddling quite hard and just soaking it all up. It was an experience that filled me with light and joy. Our guide was amazing and worked really hard. Some of the ride was quite hairy but I loved every minute of it. There were other rafts out too and the comradeship was brilliant with lots of cheeky splashing and fun thrown in.
I didn’t find it at all scary, it is a weird feeling though to be about to go over a sheer drop and to have no idea how far you have to go down (4 metres). It’s a good thing it all happened so quickly. There wasn’t time to worry about what was about to happen! The looks on my face are quite hilarious!!
It is so amazing to do something so different! I endeavour to try more new and adventurous things. It is good for the fairy in me and I shall have you know that I did it in full Fairylove dress. Frilly knickers and lycra leggings are the perfect white water rafting outfit! Ever blessed ♥ ♥ ♥
