Freya Hoffmeister on Paddling around Australia [Video]


Canoe & Kayak Magazine posted a video interview with Freya Hoffmeister about her massive day-paddle expedition around Australia. For those who had their head stuck underwater to long, Freya was the first woman and second person ever to fully circumnavigate the 14,000 kilometer (8700 mile) shoreline of Australia. She was named Canoe & Kayak’s Magazine’s 2010 Adventurer of the Year.

I’m pretty sure I will be named the 2011 Adventurer of the Year with my circumnavigation of the Toronto Islands yesterday. It was a massive 12 kilometer expedition.

Thanks to The Adventure Blog for the tip off.
