Flußbad Aktion! It means fishing…rubbish.

For me, apart from a lot of positive things in Rostock what is making this city so lovely and special is the river Warnow with nice sidewalk and port. But sometimes the enjoy of walking long by the river was disturbed by not nice view of rubbish floating at the river and stopping at the riverside…but finally I could do something with that by myself!

Flußbad Aktion is organised once in a year by a Rostock partner NGO called Lederhexen e.V…The idea is to canoeing a long the river and ‘fishing’ rubbish.Kompass is taking part in this action again, but for me it was the first time.

We were lucky to participate in the action at last Friday (25th of April)- first sunny and warm day of this spring

10 persons and 5 kayaks were brought to the small city Poppendorf next to Rostock. Were we could start our adventure on the small canal leading to the Warnow to Fußbad in Rostock.Beautiful landscape, sun, water and singing birds – nice variety from daily work in the office :) Floating bottles after alcohol, plastic bags and buckets, old chairs, bike’s and car’s wheels etc…All of that was not disturbing us, it became our wanted target to catch .

After 4 hours canoeing in that lovely ambience with a feelings of great hunters and being proud of leaving our river more clean than before we could all sit by the river and enjoy grilling together.

What I can say?

More actions like this!Personally I can do this every month, unfortunately this action is happening once a year.

I can recommend this kind of spending free time. That is more fruitful than normal leisure canoeing.

I hope to see more of us next year!
