Meet The King of Rafts and the instigator of my raft obsession Thor Heyerdahl.
Archeologist, Anthropologist and Epic Adventurer. He built and sailed two rafts – Ra and Kon Tiki built by traditional means to prove his theories about the population of the pacific isles.
Ra & Kon Tiki.
I really recommend reading some of his books, they are fascinating, funny and inspiring, all the best things.
