Ooh, nothing like a cheeky Euro kayaking trip to kick off the summer. Val Sesia in the Piedmont regionof northern Italy was all set for late May/June any way. All good.
And then... Find out about some wayward souls with a space in their car going to the Pyrenees in late April. Bonus!
This is somewhere I have wanted to visit again after my biking trip in 2010. This time a little further north and more into the Spanish side but I reckon its all good.

Probably the most exciting/scary bit is going with a team I've never paddled with, let alone go on a 10 day mission!
