The map for the map heads and river lovers #rodekors #theshirt

The question have arrived: “do you have a better map?”

The answer on my new super best home made map is; I’ll start in Basel (down left) and turns to new river / channel where you can see a red square and ends in the Black sea (down right)

The answer in headlines is;

The start is with a Swizz chocolate in the river city Basel (on the Rhine). Then to Mainz (Germany )- to Bamberg (G) and from there paddling south to the start of Danube –  and then waving my arms for ca 3000 km on the Danube river to the Black Sea.

I’ll do 3 things:

I’ll ask for attention and money to find missing children in a Red Cross project. (tell how you in 5 days)

I’ll ask for signed old football shirts, so our 20 x 15 meter humanitarian football symbol can get bigger and the attention stays high.

I’ll go for a world record in Stand up paddling to trick media to my paddling board and and missing children.

The end:

I’ll stop when my arms falls of my body or when I grab the world record ( ca 4100 KM)  My guess; – it will take 100 days.

 Details:

 I’ll start on the Rhine in Basel (Swiss) and go north and will pass larger cities like Strasbourg (F), Karlsruhe (D), Mannheim (D), Ludwigshafen (D), Wiesbaden (D), and close to Mainz where I’ll turn East and upp the connecting river Main. The Main is navigable for shipping from its mouth at the Rhine for 396 km to Bamberg. From Bamberg there is a waterway (Since 1992). That is the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal (thank you for making that one…)

So I’ll paddle south from Bamberg on what many calls the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal to Furt and the channel floats in to the Danube.

On the Danube I’ll float pass:
