my name is Henri and I'm new to this forum. From mid September on I will have the opportunity to take a roundabout three month break in between jobs. I thought this would be a great to do a around the world trip with my folding kayak (Feathercraft Wisper) .
So I'm looking for destinations and an airline that is willing to transport a folding kayak for a reasonable price (Sport equipment?? especially on a around the world ticket). Maybe someone has experinience?
I would like to paddle 4-8 day trips at nice coastline/lonely beaches in warm water/weather which allow a nice swim after a hard day of kayaking;-) I thought there might be good places in Philippines, Thailand/Adamansea. Pacific islands might be a very relaxed place? I think a stop in central america / carribean sea might be worth it? Maybe someone has an memory of great trip somewhere in that region (or somewhere else) or a sugestion how to find nice places? Depending on conditions I would do both, solo tours or guided trips. I also had a look at the white sundays, but I think during that time I would have to care about the stingers during that time?
I hope this is not to unspecific! I really appreciate any answer;-)
All the best,
PS: About me: I'm 31 years old and started sea kayaking 1.5 years ago when I had a 5 month research stay in New Zealand. I've done river journey before that for a few years. Currently I live in Darmstadt, Germany which forces me to do weekend kayak trips on rivers not on the sea.
