"Adventure - this quest for escapism, seeking to push limits, to find freedom and the unpredictable - has always drawn me and been part of me since I was a student. I can still remember my first adventure with friends, when three of us set out to discover Albania!
I’ve always been into sport, and passionate about wild nature, and have always loved to set unique challenges for myself. So, when I discovered a high-performance inflatable (which means easy to transport!) kayak two or three years ago, so many adventures ideas flooded into my head. After my first adventures on foot or bike, alone or in groups, I now had my sights set on kayaking expeditions!
I discovered what travelling meant to me - the journey and the experience count more than the destination. So, kayaking was a new means of travel that suited me perfectly: sporty, adventurous, right out in nature, and a reduced carbon footprint.
Not long after I discovered kayaking, I came across an article about a trip down the Danube (thanks, François) and, all of a sudden, the plan became clear to me: I wanted to take on the second-longest river in Europe (after the Volga in Russia)! Passing through Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine. This river was perfect for my kayaking adventure! I completed the first leg last year (700 km) and I couldn’t wait to come back for another adventure.
Going solo for this trip allows me to clear my head, test my limits and surpass them, to enjoy some tranquillity and to manage my days in my own way. You’ve just got yourself to count on! I’ve got goosebumps just writing about it."
