After 225 days of kayaking the Oslo to Oslo trip finished at 1535 after a last leg of 25 km.
And then there were dinner and champagne and cake…. A great way to end an adventure.
But ended it has. Ca. 6000 km and 225 days of collaboration and companionship, of autonomy and freedom, and quite often a feeling of mastery. Three components for a happy life.
Autonomy and mastery are fleeting and transient. Collaboration and companionship builds friendships and friendship endures.That is the main outcome of such an undertaking.
Stein and Erling thank all helpers at home and along the way, and especially our paddling companions joining us for parts of the adventure : Per Wilhelm, Karianne (2100 km!!!), Arne, and short but crucial; the Naadendal Comrades Torbjørn and Helge.
And thanks to all of you who has followed the adventure and encouraged us along the way.
Take care and enjoy!
