I've been pretty bad at maintaining the blog lately. On the bright side, you haven't missed much. This summer I had big goals about kayaking in each country that Emily and I traveled to, but in the end we just kayaked once in France (stay tuned!) and once in Belgium (this post).
In August, Emily and I met up with my Belgian-American kayaking friend, Stijn (from San Francisco), for a day trip in Kasterlee, Belgium.
The peak of excitement was a traffic jam at a fallen tree. At least 20 kayaks had stacked up, incapable of steering themselves through the only narrow opening. A camp counselor was standing waist deep in the water, shoving each tandem kayak through the opening manually.
* We probably would have gone farther if I hadn't had a terrible migraine that day :(
