HomeSeaHome are home

Czech couple Natalie and Michal Madera paddled up the Thames into central London on Tuesday, finishing their paddle around Britain. Their many adventures and challenges have been outlined in their blog, If you haven’t read this yet, you really should do so…it is an amazing view of Britain and British culture from two relative newcomers, and is frequently hilarious. There are no heroics and no machismo; they set out as normal paddlers who just decided to explore their adopted homeland.

It was a privilege to meet them as they came off the water on Tuesday, buzzing with excitement from their achievement. They were greeted by some friends and also numerous awed kids from Shadwell Basin Outdoor Centre.

One of the Maderas’ objectives has been to raise money for two charities of personal interest to them…please take a moment to read about them, and please consider supporting their great work…

  1. Excellent photos Mark, you really captured the moment. It was a great day to welcome them back to London after 4 months, keeping us glued to the spot finder. Best wishes and good luck for your trip to Lundy.
