For all our adventures so far, from Fuji-Q to scuba diving to the Nevis Swing, Karen and I haven’t gone whitewater rafting on this trip. In fact, we’ve never gone rafting together. In fact, I haven’t been rafting since the big family vacation out west when I was 15, and Karen’s last trip down a river was a couple decades ago.

We’re all grown up now, and we’re going rafting in Nepal.

My thanks to Paddle Nepal photog Garrett, for capturing the photo of my big moment. I was impressed with Paddle Nepal’s safety standards and customer service- highly recommended for your next trip to Pokhara.

Add rafting to the list Next Stop: World adventures. Yes, we’ll be going again, before a couple decades pass.
