Alexander “Olo” Doba (1946-2021)

On February 22, departed the great traveler and kayaker, who sailed three times The Atlantic paddling in a kayak, alone and without outside help. He was a volcanoe of energy with his accomplishments pushing the boundaries of the impossible. Olo died in Tanzania while conquering Africa’s highest peak, Kilimanjaro fulfilling another travel dream.

We extend our deep sympathy to Olo’s family.
