THE GOPRO THAT CAME BACK

Sunday Herald Sun - Escape - - YOUR VIEW -

Last year I lost my GoPro off the side of a kayak in the ocean in the Greek is­lands and af­ter al­most 12 full months un­der­wa­ter some­one found it and posted a pho­to­graph on a travel com­pany page.

The photo was shared by 163 peo­ple and it reached me in 18 hours from the orig­i­nal post. The per­son who found my GoPro is now up­load­ing and send­ing lost travel pho­tos back to me. COURT­NEY FITZGER­ALD
