River Rafting Adventure

I was so happy when I heard the news that my cousin from Poland would be visiting us this summer for my brothers wedding. The last time I saw him was about 2 years ago, when Chase and I visited Poland. While here he mentioned he wanted to go river rafting, so I looked up some spots nearby and took him to raft the Thompson River with my girlfriend and her son. I finally got around to posting some photos from our day adventure - Enjoy!



Although I've been river rafting before in Alberta, it was actually my first time rafting in BC. We had to leave fairly early in the morning to meet up with our group in Lytton. Which is about 2.5 hours from our place.










We had such an amazing time and although it started to rain half way through it didn't matter since we were already soaked. I would love to go rafting again, but maybe try the Fraser river this time! 

Have any of you been rafting before? How was your experience? I would love to hear about it!

Stay Blissful:-)

    1. Thanks so much Vivian! Rafting was a blast and can't wait to try it again next year. I definitely recommend it, but do some researching on spots first, depending on what type of rafting intensity ur in the mood for-). Hope you had a great weekend!

  16. Aw that looks like so much fun! I've only been white water rafting once and I really want to do it again someday! I'm not a huge outdoorsy person though so who knows when that's going to happen. :p
