I’m René Seindal, Danish, but living in Venice, Italy, with my wife Martina and our two dogs Stella and Penny.

My alma mater is the University of Copenhagen, from where I have an M.A. in History and Italian and a B.Sc. in computer science.  I’m also a qualified Tour Leader (accompagnatore turistico) here in Italy, and a reasonably able photographer.

My main occupation in Venice is is my company Venice Kayak, which organises guided tours in kayak in Venice, Italy, and in the surrounding lagoon.  Venice is a truly magical place, and I never get tired of paddling there.

On the side I also teach voga alla veneta (Venetian rowing), and do photo walks in Venice,


Hi Rene,

Oliver from Lonely Planet Traveller here – hope you’re good!

A much belated big thanks for helping us out in June – you’ve seen the video I take it? I need an address to send a hard copy of the magazine to, could you send me one?

All the best and thanks again
