If you are sailing these days on the southern Adriatic coast you might witness a man swimming from island to island followed by a gaggle of children and their parents.
The Croatian teacher, blogger, journalist, foodie, Domagoj Jakopovic, after the tragic loss of his 12-year-old son Roko started a great project named RokOtok. Domagoj, known as RibaFish, had planned to visit all 50 populated Croatian islands with his son. After his loss he started the project by himself trying to point out how important and precious time spent with our children is.
RibaFish’s goal is swim to all 50 populated Croatian islands, every summer 17 of them. The project will last for three summers. This summer, during 30 days he will swim 92 kilometres. His adventure started on the 6th of July on Lapad Beach.
By now RibaFish has already reached the islands Kolocep, Sipan, Lopud and Mljet. On his way there is a lots of followers, and it seems that their number is increasing in every port he arrives.
After swimming Ribafish is talking to children and their parents about how valuable is simply spending time with each other. He talks about ecology, and also trying to stimulate the adventurous spirit in kids to explore the world around us.
