3. Coron Bay, Philippines 2020 Sea kayak Expedition – Journey

We all started packing together a few hours before leaving Vienna. Although I planned and prepared the paddling in the Philippines for several months, it still turned out as always.

Sea Kayaking through three capitals – 2. From Vienna, Austria to Štúrovo, Slovakia

And off we go. We met shortly before 8 am in Karloveská shipyard from where we went to the Vienna port by car. As usual, the biggest problem was to pack up for the ship. When it seems you have a lot of free storage space, you have probably forgotten something. The last time I...
