Thanks Dan and Kelly! Kayak Safari


Dan, the renaissance man. Have I ever told you how amazed I am at your multi-talented-ness? Your vast knowledge of film and literature... your quick-witted yet completely screwy humor? I'm not only saying this because you've put some dollars towards my tummy. I miss you guys, hope Medium Rare and the job are coming along nicely. Lovely Kelly, thank you, too. I forget that you must always include the better half in thanking married men. My bad. You guys rock!

I took your fundage and put it towards a Kayak Safari at the Pink Palace in Corfu. It was a great trip on a two-person Kayak (shared with the French-Canadian girl) to cliff-jumping spots and deserted islands. The trip was led by this guy who had traveled around a bit, gotten various degrees including a PhD, and ended up on Kerkyra where he's spreading peace to partying people at the Palace. My favorite part was sitting in a circle on Aphrodite's island. There were maybe 20 of us up there. We passed around a cup of moonshine as we each shared a bit about ourselves and said 'cheers' in our native languages. It was awesome to hear about where people had come from and where they were going. One girl was about to head to Africa for 27 months with the Peace Corp. They told her she wouldn't know where she'd be stationed until she got there. Whoa! At least three of us had recently quit our jobs to travel. A bunch had just finished college or grad school (and didn't know what was next). A couple were on holiday. There was one guy ready to pursue acting in LA. So many stories. (So many cute girls) So many people discovering things about themselves.

Thanks for helping ease the financial pain of the trip. BTW, it was more snacks than lunch on the Kayak Safari- meatballs, dolmades- rice wrapped with grape leaves, and this nice Greek pine wine. Here's a video of the view outside of my room at the Pink Palace (and above is a photo of me on the beach, my rock wall, and a naked dude- He wants in on the next game of Liar's Dice):
