It was a not so eventful day for the rest of the world, as it was still dark when we boarded the plane from Cebu to Cagayan de Oro. But for us, it was a beginning of an exciting and adrenaline-pumping escapade.
When we arrived there, we waited in the airport terminal gate for our bus to pick us up en route to the starting point.
It was somewhat cloudy but you could see some rays of the sun seeping through the clouds.
We had some briefing first, what we need to know in case something happens. But most importantly, Dodoy our rafting guide said, Enjoy white water rafting in Cagayan de Oro rapids!
After half the duration of the trip, it started raining. And then it poured really hard as if there was a storm going on. I was literally shaking because it was so cold and I was afraid too. But my friends (who were ironically all girls) were having fun. I don’t know if they’ve realized what a dangerous situation it was – visibility was zero, lightning was striking everywhere, branches and leaves were flying about.
It was a cool experience all in all, never mind the “storm in the middle of the raging sea” experience.
