Today’s guest is Jorgen van der Pol, also known as Kayak Cobber.
I first learned of Kayak Cobber when he posted a brief note on a Facebook group, casually mentioning his experience paddling from Holland to Moldova. When he said he started with 1000 km upstream and had to pass through 80 locks, then got arrested, I knew I needed to share his story. I learned that the obstacles he faced, and continues to face, are much greater. Stories like his is one of the reasons I chose to start this podcast.
