In Episode 2 of the #365Firsts Podcast, I tell you the story of the first time I went kayaking—in Dubrovnik, Croatia. As you can see from the pictures, the old town of Dubrovnik is an amazing place. I was walking around on top of the walled city when I saw people kayaking below and knew it was something I wanted to do. I was able to book a spot for the next day.
I woke up excited the following day, until I opened the curtains, and saw the pouring rain. I still showed up in the afternoon, so did a couple from Ireland, and the sunshine. The horrible morning turned into a gorgeous afternoon—the tour guide had planned to cancel the tour, but since we were there; he took us out. I found myself in a one person kayak…slowly being left behind.
Listen to the show and find out how I handled the situation—it’s a lesson you’ll come to learn as you do your firsts! Also hear about some other kayaking experiences I’ve had since my first time.
