Today, I packed my packraft and went to the coast of Turku in order to exercise a little bit for our trip in Sweden next week. I paddled around 5 km, however there are endless possibilities to paddle as there are plenty of islands in the Baltic Sea around Turku.
Inflating the packraft and checking its condition.
This is my current packrafting shoe solution – it’s modular, dry, waterproof and has a great grip.
It consists of Smartwool PHD Socks, Latex Socks and Teva Northridge Sandals.
Werner Shuna Paddles still works great.
This is the place where I went in. It is located in Uittamo.
I love those clouds. In a packraft you can just lean back and observe how the clouds are moving.
The flats in this area of Turku (Hirvensalo) are very expensive.
Suunto Ambit 2 and Aquapac Camera Pouch attached on a Petzl Attache 3D and my HMG Porter 4400 backpack.
This island was full of seagulls and they became quite nervous the closer I paddled to the island.
Reed is growing almost everywhere. This sign seems to be a popular place for birds…until I paddled closer.
