Kayaker expedition from Germany to Australia pushes off in Singapore

Australian kayaker Sandy Robson poses for a photo as she prepares to leave Singapore on the final leg of her five-year expedition, which started from Germany in 2011 and will end in Australia in 2016.

Robson said she hopes her journey inspires more people to connect with the marine environment.

SOUNDBITE: Sandy Robson, Australian kayaker, saying (English):

“I’m really passionate about the outdoor marine environment, and I think when people start to get out in this environment and be out on the sea, they start to care about it and take action to look after the environment.”

The 48-year-old is retracing the 1930s route of German, Oskar Speck.

And even though she tries to find accommodation on dry land every night, sometimes large bodies of water keep her at sea for two or three days.

Singing is one way of breaking the silence.

SOUNDBITE: Sandy Robson, Australian kayaker, saying (English):

“I sing really badly, and I usually can’t remember all the words. I talk to the fishermen that I meet, and I don’t know, I’m not where I live, so it’s pretty exciting for me actually.”

Robson has travelled more than 10,000 kilometres or 6,000 miles and her route has included the coasts of Sri Lanka and India.
