A Thai Kayan lesson that changed my life

Someone one said that every journey starts with a small step. The moment we step into this world, with the first breath, blink of the surrounding world we open a new chapter in our life but also those whose life would be touched by us.

There are many pathways and turns to explore, we may feel lost at times, exhausted by walking for a long time without seeing any signs, powerless. We may even forget why we have started the journey in first place or doubting that we will ever get to where we want to be.

To desperately keep moving we are blindly trying to find another path. We turn, walk, run or crawl, to move forward regardless of directions. Stopping means losing.  We make sure we keep busy and occupied to proof to ourselves that we are achieving our desires.

There are times when we cannot move forward. Everything seems to be frozen and static. Everything looks pointless and without a purpose. Like a caveman we are hiding in the cave surrounded by darkness where you cannot see what is around you. This place may be scary, lonely and empty but as long as there is a fire to keep you warm there is still hope that you survive and this light will guide you in how to leave the cave and see the world once again.

We all have moments when we become cavemen in our lives. Although, these moments might look terrifying and lonelier. These are also the most treasury periods in our lives when we have the chance to connect with ourselves and see if our GPS is set into right direction.

I only realised that I was in the cave for a long period after my trip to Thailand last year.

Seeing this amazing part of the world made me leave my cave and see the light again. Read more

Przekraczanie granic – rozmowa z Tomaszem Kobielskim, jednym z pierwszych Polaków zdobywców “KORONY ZIEMI”.

Od czego się wszystko się zaczęło?

W zasadzie wszystko zaczęło się od harcerskich wędrówek, które stopniowo zaczęły łaczyć się ze wspinaniem. Generalnie ojciec mojej drużynowej był himalaistą i dzięki temu z górami wysokim miałem styczność w dosyć  młodym wieku.

Widziałem jak on się pakował na wyprawy wysokogórskie kiedy bylem młodym człowiekiem.  To niewątpliwie mogło dać jakiś impuls, ze zainteresowałem się bliżej tym tematem. Po  latach na skutek różnych doświadczeń biznesowych i  obserwacji  innych ludzi stwierdziłem że ja mam pomysł na to, jak to zrobić po swojemu. To był moment w którym podjąłem decyzje o zawodowym podejściu do tego tematu.

A po drodze były oczywiście sytuacje , że gdzieś tam mnie znajomi polecali na zasadzie „mam takiego kumpla” i jak ktoś chciał wejść na jakąś górę to dzwonili do mnie i pytali się czy nie mógłbym gdzieś z nimi w góry pojechać.

Góry w moim życiu zmieniły wszystko …

Lemon, has definitely become one of my best friends in the kitchen for many years. I just can’t imagine my daily routine without drinking a glass of lemon every morning which helps flush the digestive system and rehydrate the body.
