Exploring the Odra was a big dream, since I crossed this amazing river many times on the Autobahn on my way to Poland. So this time I did it ;)!
As I have been told from experienced kayak-collegues and from publications of Polish administratives it is tolerated for single kayaks to visit the natural habitat.
So I did. Well, a little ;). Because it was hard work to move a few meters due to pretty well-growing underwater-plants. It waslike moving in a milk-shake.
And finally I had to stop and turn back (most Northern point on map), because a wild pig with a few young shoats was sending signals, that I shouldnt come closer even a single centimeter – I understood, even not speaking their language ;). And you are lost, turning with the boat and being without a paddle for a little chance to defend yourself…
Poland is a country with an amazing nature. My strongest wish is, that the nice and kind Polish people start to care for their natural habitats. Stop and remove the waste!
