it's always a terrible tragedy when a young mother dies leaving her family behind.
BUT ... An eight month long adventure trip ?
This family from Austria was out on an inflatable canoe, white water rafting in freezing cold waters in Peru , with a
4 year old , 2 year old, and 1 year old .
They had to know that they were taking some risks for ALL of the lives on that canoe , for the "adventure" of it all .
Yes, it is very sad , but I think the real tragedy was not caused by accident ,
but by the foolish decission to trust mother nature and to NOT wear a life jacket on ANY boat in unfamiliar water .

a very sad end to a beautiful trip that could so easily have averted by wearing the correct equipment
Exactly. Thats the part I don't understand, the trip seemed to well planned, the kids even had life vests. Very sad end.
