We rafted the Nile, it was awesome!! Too bad we didn't have a water proof camera with us to show you what the rapids were like instead we bought the DVD.
They say that the rapids on the Nile are probably some of the best grade 5 rapids in the world. The water was warm, so it didn't matter if we fell out (which Kathie did on the rapid they call "Silverback" - a giant wall of water) and the water is deep enough that you don't really have to worry about hitting rocks. Being that this was Jordan's first time white-water rafting, he's decided to retire from the sport as nothing will be able to compare to the "best in the world".
We also posted some pictures of the day to day stuff that you see driving on the roads. The cows in Uganda have some of the biggest horns we've ever seen!
Welcome to our travelblog page. We initally called ourselves "AfricaBound" because we spent a year traveling around Africa from August 2007 to August 2008. At that time, little did we even think that we could go on another extended trip. Somehow through much perseverance and determination we were able to save up for yet another extended trip, this time as sort of a honeymoon. Our current itinerary has us traveling from July 2010 until December 2011 through Central Asia, China, New Zealand, Australia and then back up to SE Asia, Nepal, India and then finally Japan.
