Freya Hoffmeister has earned the distinction of being named Canoe & Kayak magazine’s Adventurer of the Year. In case you’ve forgotten about Freya, she’s the woman who circumnavigated the entire continent of Australia in a kayak. The journey took her 332 days to complete, covering more than 14,000km (8700 miles). In the video below she talks about that journey, mentioning that she just always tried to keep Australia on the left and just kept paddling. It is a pretty amazing feat for sure and the video offers some insights into what it was like for her.
