Okay this is mostly just a test to see if I have this blog thing down correctly before I move 8,000 miles away. Wow....that sounds like I won't be seeing too many regulars for awhile.
1. I read about a place in the PHILIPPINES where for about $80 I can swim with whale sharks! Wow! By the way, that is not me in the red bikini....mine is a one - piece and blue.
2. I read about a place in New Zealand where I can go black water rafting! Blackwater rafting?? I had heard about whitewater rafting but what's with the racist tag?? Turns out those Kiwis aren't anymore racist than your next door neighbor (unless he's the Grand Dragon of the local chapter). Nope, Blackwater rafting is when you raft underfriggin'ground!! Here's how it works: You hike into a cave, then wade in a river (at some points the water is so close to the ceiling that while walking, you have to turn your head side ways so that you can keep your ahead above the water...kinda important), but wait.... it gets crazier. After a while that river decides it wants to fall off an underground cliff, so you have to jump into this blackness... and when you surface swim to a light and get on a raft. Then you raft the rest of the river and enter a room that's filled with yellow glow worms!
