Retracing the Oskar Speck Journey

On Nov 2, 2016 - Sandy completed kayaking Germany to Australia!

A few years ago someone told me about a kayaker who paddled all the way from Germany to Australia.

Oskar Speck set out in a folding kayak on the Danube River in 1932.  Seven years, several kayaks and many thousands of kilometres later, he landed in Australian waters. Inspired by what has to be the most amazing kayak journey of all time, I have just finished retracing the Speck route across the world in a kayak.  This website is where you can follow my journey.  Living simply out of a kayak, I have found out that there are many things in life that we can do without, but dreams are not one of those things.  I am now about to embark on a new challenge, spending a year writing the book that Oskar Speck never got to write!  The book will be a compilation of the story of my journey by kayak from Germany to Australia, interspersed with stories from Oskar Speck.
If you would like to help to make this dream a reality please donate a little to help me survive as I spend one year focused on the creative process of writing an amazing adventure story to share with you in late 2017 .
