Oslo by Kayak - the story behind. I thought I would start with a blog post about how I came up with the idea of connecting Oslo kayak tours and eco-tourism, that later would become Oslo By Kayak and my fulltime summer job.
Oslo By Kayak - the story behind
When my friend asked me to select one childhood memory, which made a positive impact on my life. It took me only a second to decide what to answer.
When I was six years old my mom and dad took me on a sailing trip around the world. When I look at my life today and who I have become, almost everything reflects on this experience. My understanding of the ocean is that It connects the world. It has always taken care of us and we cannot live without it.
However, It seems that we humans forgot that somewhere in our history. Because who else could take the blame for all the plastic waste on our mother earth and our ocean. Even when I was six years old (1990), I could see what plastic waste did to our marine wildlife. And I still have fresh memories of how we had to cut loose a turtle from the plastic around a six-pack of cans. And how his breathing changed after cutting him loose.
