Petrinela manages the family operated
Kafeneio (Coffee-Ouzo bar) and the
Guesthouse business, in-between her motherly tasks. She enjoys
spending time with her family, quiet nights at home, sundays at the
beach and the
occasional moonlight swim. After working hard all summer, she
looks forward to a winter break, either skiing in the alps, or to Australia for an endless summer.
Feldtmann (company founder, owner, operator and guide)
Rod grew up on a farm in Victoria, Australia. After graduating
with a degree in Geology from the University of Wollongong, he worked
for 10 years as an Exploration Geologist in Australia, South America and
finally in Milos. In year 2001, when his contract as a Geologist
came to an end, Rod established Sea Kayak Milos as a means to remain on
Milos, sustain his family and to enjoy the great outdoors. The aim
of the business was, and still is, to provide affordable sea-kayaking
holidays, in a fantastic location, to people of all abilities.
With 16 years experience leading trips on
Milos and to other places in Greece, he is one of the most experienced guides in Greece. He regularly travels to the UK to
attend British Canoe Union (BCU) training courses. He holds his
5 star sea kayak leader
and is currently a UKCC Level 2 sea kayak coach.
