KON-TIKI

KON-TIKI-CoverKON-TIKI is a great movie! I highly recommend the movie! Any Adventurer or Explorer will enjoy the movie. It’s a must see! I give the movie a 9 out of 10.

The movie is about a Norwegian explorer by the name of Thor Heyerdahl and five other men who crossed the Pacific Ocean in a balsa wood raft in 1947.  They did this to prove that South Americans in pre-Columbian times could have crossed the sea and settle on the Polynesian islands.

Their epic journey across 4,300 miles of ocean lasted 101 day. The movie highlights how Heyerdahl came up with the idea and how he worked at gathering financing for the expedition with loads & donations.
