Over dinner tonight Mark, a Chicago-based colleague of mine, mentioned to me that I’d inspired him to go paddling during a recent family vacation to the French island of Bora Bora in the South Pacific. He couldn’t talk highly enough about Bora Bora itself, the amazing snorkling he did with reef sharks and stingrays, and of course the paddling he got up to.
Now I haven’t met anyone in Chicago who’s actually been kayaking, so this was great to hear. And by the sounds of it, Mark had numerous great paddles on the clear waters of this tropical paradise. So yet again, I have another paddling spot on my list of places to paddle – thanks Mark! Cheers – FP
