Norwegian windsurfer takes break on Black Sea coast
ORDU- Anadolu Agency
In the midst of a journey to windsurf around Europe, a Norwegian adventurer stopped off for a rest on April 25 in Turkey’s Black Sea region.
In the town of Ünye, Ordu, on Turkey’s northern Black Sea coast, Jonathan Dunnett told Anadolu Agency he started his trip in 2017 to deliver a message of peace and friendship to the whole world.
“After arriving, I realized Ünye was a friendly place and I had things to do. I decided to stay one more day as the wind wasn’t good enough. I met plenty of people here,” he said.
He said he wanted to reach Russia and Abkhazia, Georgia, on the Black Sea’s eastern coast, then return to Norway by bicycle.
In a previously released statement explaining his motivation for his journey, Dunnett said: “There are numerous reasons. They all boil down to having the opportunity. Having the opportunity is such a privilege that it feels an obligation to accept. This is the only path available for me to be true to myself.”
“The fear of regret - of having had the opportunity and not trying - is more powerful than the fear involved in giving it a go! For now, the path of expedition windsurfer seems right.”
