This story has been making it around the Internet for a couple of days now and no matter where I see it, it doesn’t stop impressing me. Aleksander Doba is a 64 year old Polish adventurer that completed, what is to be believed, the longest solo kayaking voyage.  He left October 26th, 2010 from Dakar in West Africa in a custom made 23-foot kayak and set across the Atlantic. He reached the shore of Brazil on February 2nd, 2011. During the 99 day adventure he encountered sharks, barracudas and bad weather which set him back a couple of days. On top of doing this amazing adventure and surviving in a kayak, he would use his satellite phone to tweet details to his followers on twitter.

This man is truly an inspiration to do something amazing. As a fellow kayaker, I know how hard this had to be on him physically and emotionally. I don’t think I could do it, but it would be fun to at least attempt it. Check out the full story HERE
