Day 9

GREECE | Sunday, 12 Jun 2011 | Views [92]

Trip home - ferry for an hour, bus for an hour, wait for an hour in the airport. It started raining again, and was raining as we left Greece. Rïga Airport was it's normal tiny bustling self - our World Nomads travel insurance expired sometime ... Read more >

Day 8

GREECE | Saturday, 11 Jun 2011 | Views [150]

The last day of the holiday. As part of the course, the instructor had asked us to prepare a trip around the whole of Poros island. Poros island isn't huge, and getting around all of it isn't an enormous undertaking - but it is far enough to ... Read more >

Day 7

GREECE | Friday, 10 Jun 2011 | Views [114]

This was the major part of the assesment. We left the hotel at 10 and went to a nearby secluded bay. Correctly, it's called Neorio, but it's the major beach which we used for rescue practices, so we renamed it 'Dunking Bay'. Basically, we had ... Read more >

Day 6

GREECE | Thursday, 9 Jun 2011 | Views [120]

We had a rest day today, so instead of kayaking, we hired a scooter and scootered around the island. To be honest, I would have been as happy to have gone snorkelling, but gf wanted to go on a trip, and I just want the quiet life. The scenery ... Read more >

Day 5

GREECE | Wednesday, 8 Jun 2011 | Views [102]

Exciting day! Quite windy in the morning, and we went hydrofoil dodging. Then did eskimo rolls:) Choppy winds and quite a swell on the sea as we cruised across the bay at Askeli - it's about 20 minutes, so not onerous. Once we were across, ... Read more >

Day 4

GREECE | Tuesday, 7 Jun 2011 | Views [105]

Apologies for the rubbish names of the journal entries, I honestly can't be arsed to think of anything clever. Today was a long journey day - a 16.5km trip eastward along the south coast of Poros, then around the island of Modi and back to Askeli.... Read more >

Day 3

GREECE | Monday, 6 Jun 2011 | Views [147]

Our first taste of kayaking :) After a leisurely morning, we kayaked a little way down the coast and started practicing rolls and rescues. Hard, wet and salty work, and we were quite pooped that evening - understandably, being as we had very little ... Read more >

Day 2

GREECE | Sunday, 5 Jun 2011 | Views [84]

What do first time visitors to Athens always do...? So, realising that time in the morning was pinched, to say the least, we checked out of the hotel, took a taxi to the Acropolis, and then went up to check it out. A pile of crap.... Read more >

Day 1

GREECE | Saturday, 4 Jun 2011 | Views [117]

It was raining when we landed at Athens airport. We had left Oulu at 6:30 for an unhurried journey to the airport, getting there in plenty of time. The AirBaltic flight left on time but landed 27 minutes late, giving us 3 minutes to get to the next ... Read more >


FINLAND | Thursday, 2 Jun 2011 | Views [258]

I work in the Finnish IT business, which is (obviously) falling apart right now. About ready for a holiday. I'm really really hoping that some Icelandic volcano will go off after we have landed :) No exciting news. It's two days until we leave.... Read more >


FINLAND | Thursday, 26 May 2011 | Views [238]

We have our wetsuits for the Greece trip, and we tried them on last night in our own little wetsuit party :) I've never owned or worn a wetsuit before, so it was interesting - they are hard to get on alone, but easy with a friend helping. Found this ... Read more >


FINLAND | Tuesday, 24 May 2011 | Views [258]

My girlfriend and I are going on a trip to Greece in about 12 days. It's a BCU 2-star kayaking course, so we need fairly robust insurance. I got a 10% discount from WN, and they have a free blog as well - mezin. We had an email from the instructor about ... Read more >
