  Ellen Jo & Donovan Ljung


www.2paddletogether.com

Always risk-averse, Ellen was more comfortable in water than on land. Don's never-ending quest for adventure didn't include being cold in the water. In the 70s they rented and paddled rowboats with their children. By 1981 they were racing their canoe and whitewater rafting on vacations. Being on the water together met their differing needs and led to adventures around the world. After 16 organized trips with outfitters, they continue to travel the US looking for new water to play in. Their paddling inspires their work as glass artists and Ellen's writing and poetry. They even had their 50th anniversary photos taken in full wedding attire in their kayaks!

After decades of canoeing and whitewater rafting, Ellen & Donovan bought their first kayaks in 1995. When their local river grew too familiar, they started traveling to paddle regionally, and then internationally, reaching five different continents. From Seattle to the Amazon, from the Sea Caves of Wisconsin to Halong Bay in Vietnam, each adventure has enriched their lives. Since the pandemic cancelled their Norway and Venice trips, they've sought kayaking wherever they travel in the US. Come hear their "Top Ten Reasons to Travel to Paddle" and share your own.
