PEOPLE MAKE THE DIFFERENCE (PART TWO)

APRIL 9

Suzann and her friend David picked me up from the Tusevik ferry terminal, not too far from Kåringon, the Swedish Rescue Centre. Suzann put me up in her home for the next three days. Despite the loss of her husband a couple months ago and in the midst of relocating, she opened her door and smothered me with genuine hospitality. Curry, chicken and soup, she fed me while we talked about life and our journeys. Suzann made a difference for me. She also did a great job on locating a Silent Hero and also lining up an interview with SVT Radio. Her concern was motherly at times :) and constructive. A big hug to you Suzann.

David. What can I say about David. He has the world's biggest heart, likes to chatter and is genuinely concerned about helping others. I really, really like this guy. David drove to get me, bought me coffee, landed a place to store my kayak, and gave me a wealth of solid advice. He took time off work to assist me, line up a short paddle with his instructor friend, and buy supplies. David made a difference and I sincerely appreciate his caring attitudes and wealth of knowledge.
