About my own endurance? Out of question…

About the endurance to listen to a lecture about my trips? So far no one has fallen asleep when I am talking…

About the endurance to read a book about my trips? “Fearless” aka “Hai Heels” by Joe Glickman are kind of bestsellers…but we’ll see how thick a book about my South American trip will have to be, or how many volumes will include it…

About the endurance of the press following my trip? So…so…

About the endurance to read my daily blog entries? Not sure how many of my  followers managed to stick to it even on the boring days…

About the endurance to comment almost every day? The award for ongoing comments goes to the unbeatable “King of Commenters”: Randall Lackey! Thanks for *your* endurance, Randall! I was at least sure I wrote my daily blog entries not entirely in vain… 🙂

I am an avid reader of your blog and have been following you for about two years. Following your progress each day brings motivation for me and others to challenge ourselves.

Following along with Freya’s adventures has been highly enjoyable, and reading the comments of regular followers (Karen, Randall, Barbara G., etc.) has made them seem rather like old friends. Although happy and relieved for Freya that she may now return to her loved ones in Germany and plan her next adventure, I am truly sad that this one has come to an end. I do hope this blog remains up and accessible, as I frequently scroll back to read favorite highlights, especially Freya’s secret sneak through the Panama Canal! Happy paddling to Freya, and to all.

Parabéns Freya!!
Você foi realmente uma guerreira! Acompanhei sua saga ao longo desses anos, embora com apenas um post. Torci e rezei para que tudo desse certo. Admirei sua coragem, bom senso, respeito às pessoas e consciência ambiental. Além da conquista pessoal e do belo record batido por uma mulher de 50 anos, você incentivou a realização de nossos projetos e a possibilidade de sonhar mais. E sonhar é preciso.
Descance e curta a família.
Muita saúde e paz!


I read the blog everyday for both your South America and Australia trips. Even gave a little advice when you were having trench foot troubles. Enjoyed reading every bit of the good and bad days.

Boring? I have rarely read anything more un-boring than your blog, and believe me, I read a lot! It was just like a very exciting “daily soap”, but real…

I will have to find something else to start my days with…


Randall, Frances, Barbara, Meike, and all the bloggers it has been wonderful to read all of your comments and advise while Freya was on this adventure. So glad to share this planet with you.
For the record Freya I do not recall any boring days. Thank you again for sharing this incredible adventure with us all.
Freya’s journey has reminded us all of living with awareness. Her dance on the ocean waters was supported: by all her talents, sponsors, lovers, family, navy’s, governments, bloggers, kayak clubs, hosts from all SA countries, all the marine life, friends, marine and coastal ecosystems and you. What a manifestation of love at play. What a creative mind in the unfolding universe with god. Thank you again.

I can assure you that your blog entries were not in vain. The first thing I do every day is to read your blog – and I’ve been doing it all around South America as well as all of Australia. Not sure how to survive without it 😉

Soon I’ll start my own expedition around the coast of Sweden – but its only some 1500 miles and cannot be compared with your fantastic achievement.
