"It's not only about rafting and the adrenaline rush you get out of it....It's about cultural exchange en social moments with your friends & family or making new ones. It's about reconnecting each other through an extraordinary experience in nature, going back to the basics...disconnecting from the modern world and it's influence of technologie and everyday's life. During our rafting trips you are living every moment either if its a class 4/5 rapid where you are focussing on your moves to run that line or just the spectacular scenery of the ancient canyon that has been there way back before us....It puts you back into your place and making you realize that the world is not depending on us...but we are depending on mother earth... At the end of a multi days rafting trip you have to set up your tent, camp, fire, food, water, toilet etc...But after a long day of paddling you just enjoy that moment of breathing pure mountain air and the campfire with your cup of tea or glass of wine or beer. Nothing else matters...you are just satisfied the way you are... What makes rafting so special is that you get the chance to see places that are only accessible by the river. In some countries you can see villages or tribes of local people that are isolated from the world and still live happy in harmony. Rafting is a way of transport that shouldn't disturb the nature and its life around it. Rafting has given me a lot of knowledge and experience in many different fields. It has taken me around the world to places you would never think of. It has opened my mind in so manny ways. It has connected me with so manny people around the world. And it has made me the way i'm today. I will always remember my first day rafting, i thought that was the most stupidest thing i've done in my life, swimming in ice cold water -3 Celsius degrees while others were skiing. But hey, after more than 10 years now, i'm still enjoying every seconds of the trip on any rivers. I think it's an healthy addiction but most importantly, although it might sound cliche, it's a "life style" that makes you living in the moment."
