Spring time!

After our 5 days in Galicia/Portugal we drove again all night to be at home in the morning of the saturday cause we where doing a freestyle kayak course with SBP together with my brother Gerd. The surprise was to find a flooded river! there where plenty of options to go kayak and we even had the opportunity to paddle the Boavi, with comes up once in a few years if you're lucky.
Enjoy some more pictures of this last days kayaking around!
