I could try exciting activities, like white water rafting. I have been twice, when I joined adventure tour trips: one in Kota Kinabalu, East Malaysia and another in
Sailing is also an exciting activity, and I experienced its excitement too! Steve’s friend, Joe, recommended we sail with an expert who has been sailing for 28 years. At first, Steve was nervous about trying sailing, as he is not a good swimmer, gets seasick, and doesn’t care much for exciting activities. He thought it would be more comfortable on the big committee boat. I wanted him with me for sailing, and finally he tried it. Even though we were not sailing on a rapid river, you need to know the techniques to control the sails against the wind, so the boat does not get turned over. Steve and I didn’t know how to handle the sails, so we just followed instructions. Sometimes we moved to port (left side), sometimes to starboard (right side). When one side of the boat heels (leans close to the river surface), we all needed to go to the other (windward) side, hiking (stretching your body weight out as far as possible) to hold the boat in balance (this made us feel sore and tired)… How exciting is it? You need to experience it yourself!
