This guy drifted 6,700km on a homemade raft just to prove a point
The year is 1947. Five Norwegian guys, a Swede and a parrot named Lorita have decided to climb aboard a homemade wooden raft and begin a 6,700km journey from Peru to Polynesia. The idea is to use only the wind and the current to guide this makeshift vessel all the way across the South Pacific in a bid to recreate what he thought to be an ancient journey. To be sure, it’s a crazy idea.
