Do you ever find yourself googling images of Stockholm and imaging a serene life filled with socialized healthcare, bike rides, and casual kayak trips? Yeah, us too. Well, Jennifer Garner went to see it for herself and ended up getting lost with her daughter in a shipping lane, which became a terrifying kayak saga reportedly lasting 100 hours.

“On a pre-middle-school sneak away with my eldest…Did I get us lost in a kayak? Yes. Did we paddle as hard as we could for 100 hours and end up in a shipping lane? I’m afraid so. Did we have to be rescued? Yup,” Garner captioned a photo of her and her daughter Violet on what appeared to be a sunset kayak ride. Was she being hyperbolic about the 100 hours? Probably. Are we still terrified to kayak ever again? Yes.

Luckily, when one of the employees at the kayak rental spot got the call from Garner, he got into a boat of his own and started paddling.

"Mattias, one of the champions of the Långholmen kajak team, got a call from Jennifer Garner one evening," according to a post on the Långholmen Instagram page. "She was lost on the waters of Stockholm with her daughter in one of our double kayaks. Mattias got into a kayak of his own and started searching for them. Fortunately, he found them not too far away and was able to guide them back to our rental."

In theory, kayaking should be easy and conflict-free but you never know when you’re going to paddle for 100 hours only to end up in a shipping lane. Good job, Jennifer and Violet.
