I have learned a new word! I guess it has probably been around awhile and I have no idea who “coined” it but the word is “braincation”. The writer of the article I read, Wendy Rubicam, proclaimed that Grand Canyon white water rafting is the best way to take a braincation. This is because you can get completely away from the electronic distractions that so frequently interrupt our lives. You don’t have to worry about what to cook for dinner or any of the other daily decisions you usually have to make.
She even found a definition for each letter of the word!
“B is for the Brilliant blanket of stars that fills the Grand Canyon night sky
R is for the exhilarating Rapids of the mighty Colorado River…”
For the remainder you can visit this link.
She isn’t the only who is suggesting Grand Canyon white water rafting. I found a series of articles entitled “Al’tour’native Travel – Grand Canyon rafting trip. The series is just beginning so only parts 1 and 2 have been posted so far but the writer, Dixie Brunner, describes her experience. She talks about the extremes that are encountered on such a trip – extremes in temperature (hot rocks and cold water), in comfort (relaxed and tense) as well as the enjoyment of the night sky versus the discomfort of dealing with “those troublesome red ants!”
Dixie’s experiences are detailed. She talks about the cold waves of water that splash over you leaving you shocked and exhilarated at the same time. For the first in her series click here, for the second here. Next week there should be another post to tell you even more about the extremes of Grand Canyon White Water Rafting.
