White water rafting, Zambezi |

There’s nothing like testing a marriage right at the very beginning. These photos of us white water rafting on the Zambezi were taken on our honeymoon. I had recently recovered from a serious back operation and was clinging to the raft for dear life. Arūnas was a little braver, resulting in him being thrown into the rapids on more than one occasion. At one point he grabbed my arm just as I was about to go overboard, saving me from almost certain injury. We endured the rapids and the marriage is still going strong.

Photos taken by crew at Bundu Adventures.

Arūnas struggles to keep the raft upright as I cling on for dear life behind him.

Man overboard! I’d never had managed to climb back into the raft.

The moment we both almost tipped into the drink. That’s me under the wave.

My goodness, I never knew I had such strong shoulders.

Phew! I'm still in the boat.

This is the end!

    Okay, I award you the gold medal of courage. It would take a machine gun to get me on that raft, that or divorce papers when I got off, lol. Amazing shots!

    • Yeh, the photos are great – they do a great job on them. It was pretty scary, but mainly because I was worried about my back. I loved it, though – would do it again tomorrow!

    • It was fun! Exhausting and petrifying, but fun nonetheless!
