This human-made chaos is everything we want to survive this time and everything we get frustrated with. We as a mortal being are keen to watch movies in which robots are flying and changing the world or meta-humans are saving the planet earth. It indicates our want for something drastic to happen in this world, but what we are not willing to do is to leave our couch and drag ourselves out from the house to make our own life better or to save our own-self.

I have always found water to be a source of forgetting every single problem I am dealing with; the ocean somehow whispers that my problems are way smaller than the majestic ocean in front of me. Every once in a while, a person like myself craves to be near the sea. But what stops me is the same hectic routine I have been complaining about since I would remember. My wife and I always find ourselves looking for tips to how to catch a trout fish, or plan a kayaking trip or to camp in the wild but our work and our children`s education come in between. Do not get me wrong; I am not one of those who believe that everyone should leave what they are up to and start living like the cave times; although I understand those people and do not think their choices are wrong, but a day or two for yourself is becoming a necessity like anything else.

Recently my eldest is asking me to do something adventurous, something that could send chills down to our backbone. Could not lie, my son`s explaining this stuff alone gives me chills but on his demand I have been searching for some fun, thrilling yet relaxing water sports we all as a family can enjoy.
