A German couple is kayaking along British Columbia and through Southeast Alaska for four months. Katharina Guhlmann is a professional violin player and Milan Pachlopnik is a former business consultant. They started in Port Hardy in May and plan to end up in Skagway by late September.
In their double kayak, they are not only packing a tent, sleeping bags, and camp food, but also Katharina’s violin. In Petersburg Thursday night she performed at the Lutheran Church.
They also stopped into the KFSK studios to share their story.
