White-Water Rafting

I'm just back from a full day of white-water rafting in the Tully river (between Cairns and Townsville) and I'm a bit tired should I say. I did not sleep much last night because of a snorring machine in the dorm that came back around 4AM. A few minutes later, he was snorring as loud as a chainsaw. One of the guy came out of the room just to smash the door as strong as he could to stop this nightmare (killing the loser could have been another solution). It did not disturbed the culprit much... so he went to sleep in the hostel TV room.

After being picked up by the bus, the driver managed to smack into a pole while taking a turn a bit too sharp inside Cairns central. Just time to inspect the damage... and to figure out that we also have a flat tyre.

Good start.

The rest of the day however happened flawlessly and riding these grade 3 & 4 rapids were quite easy, I expected something more 'rough'. Our guide, Jodie, was absolutely great and she obviously is responsible for the fact that we managed not to flip anywhere.

Retrospectively, I would have been happy to do the grade 5 in the Zambezi river. The water was however too high when I was in Zambia and Zimbabwe. It's now added to the todo list

Bon, vous pouvez parler français tous les deux hein !

Je n'ai pas autant de retard qu'Anthony, mais ça commence à s'accumuler moi aussi !

Au contraire, j'ai plus trop le temps en ce moment à passer sur le net. En plus je bosse souvent sur un pupitre de train qui évidement n'a pas d'accès au net !
