Oh My Word!!! I think i have got to be the most naive person on the planet!!! (Naive only coz its not as harsh as the word ‘stupid’ in my mind)

I actually thought it would be a cruise – (go ahead have a laugh – as my troubled heart takes it in again)

To all those who have never gone on a Ugandan Cruise, this is a warning!!!!

In Uganda, Cruise equals Canoe ride.

Does any one know how canoes have no steps into it!!

Anyway, so we get there and am looking at a boat thats still far out. it looked okay – it was a white mini ship (You know, like the ones in the movies)…Little did i know!! Anyway we got tired of waiting for the organisers so be decided to get onto the thing, so we lined up on the elevated part of the veranda…walked on the sloping edge, hoped onto a canoe, balanced through it, then turned and got pulled into the one we were taking.

Now he was standing on the corner of the boat, the we hopped onto the flatened part and had to jump onto the boat. OMG!!!! I thought that was an event – Girls never it tell you…In you sweet exsistence get on to canoes with unpredicatble boys/men!! Its not worth it. Any second the just stand..out of the blue and royally upset the balance of the boat and thus you have the boat sway dangerously, tipping torward the water.. Thats what kept happening.

Word of advice though – Dont look at the anchor. Seriously you are better off not knowing

    Lol! Now that’s a legit cruise! Those boats which be as if houses? Completely over-rated! You need the water real close and the excitement of almost drowning! See, there’s always a bright side, babes. 🙂
