A tropical sunset. πŸŒ… // Today was life changing. Went Grade 5 white water rafting along the rapids of the River Nile for 7 hours. Equal parts exhilarating and terrifying! My brain felt like scrambled eggs after the 3rd time our raft capsized. The scariest part was being unable to breathe whilst spinning helplessly underwater. The whole experience was amazing, and crazy beautiful, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you to the #RaftAfrica #NileExplorers crew for such a brilliantly organised day. Pics soon! 🌊🌊🌊 (at Munyonyo Beach)
