The Circumnavigation
Year, 2012

2012 was the Circumnavigation Year, we left our jobs, and home and embarked on a journey which saw our transformation from weekend leisure kayakers to those, who spent long periods of time on the sea. And yes, we came back wanting more.

The Northern Four, 2015

2012 was the Circumnavigation Year, we left our jobs, and home and embarked on a journey which saw our transformation from weekend leisure kayakers to those, who spent long periods of time on the sea. And yes, we came back wanting more.

Iceland, 2017

We took a little break following the two previous trips, however the need to go somewhere again stayed with us the whole time. Originally we thought of going kayaking to the Far East Russia, but logistics became too difficult, so we head over there for holidays instead, and find a new destination. Since we like long summer days up north, we decided Iceland to be it.

 

The aim was to circumnavigate Iceland, and we did 90% of that until the weather proved to be unbeatable, and Michal’s boss became desperate for him to return to work. Iceland gave us an amazing time, and tried us in every possible way, still we enjoyed every part of it, even the becoming very jet lagged after  kayaking 12 nights straight, rather than days.

Alaska, 2018

After Iceland the idea of going on a long trip again didn’t appeal to us at all, but few weeks at work, and all was forgotten. So when Natalie came across Freya Hoffmeister’s post looking for paddling partners, she decided this was it. Somehow it happened that both Michal and Natalie went to Alaska for four weeks paddling with the same paddling partner, just not together. Michal went in July, Natalie in August, not all went according to plan, but made for a memorable experience.

Dropseat Adventure, 2019

This one is a special one so far. After kayaking as a couple for many weeks, months, years, and nautical miles, Natalie’s really wanted to go on a expedition of her own. She convinced her friend Lindsey to take time off work and to go paddling. For long time it was called “I – land”, as it wasn’t clear if it would be a return to Iceland, or journey around Ireland. When Zoe came along, Ireland became the final destination. A girly trip, and with the faff that women often face, when out in the outdoors for hours and hours, and taking into account the design of their dry suits, the name Drop seat Adventure seemed appropriate.
