I am not a risk taker. I was scared of the monkey bars as a kid. I can’t skate (and I live in Ottawa – with the world’s longest canal at my doorstep). I think I’ve only been in a canoe once as a kid – and I vividly remember sitting in the middle of the canoe like a little princess while my dad and sister paddled. It’s time to break out of my comfort zone. But being the cautious gal that I am, I’m thinking baby steps are in order. So first up? Kayaking! I’m going to learn! Wish me luck.
