Bio

I've been to 110 countries. I've ice skated on the Eiffel Tower, I have been granted access to the highest points of Africa (Kilimanjaro), Europe (Elbrus), and South America (Aconcagua at 6962 meters is the highest point I have ever been to and jumped at). I've met President Carter by chance, made selfies with Presidents Barroso & Juncker as well as Prime Ministers Tusk & Stubb. I've hiked the Great Wall of China, the Grand Canyon & Colca Canyon and got wet under the Iguazu Falls; gazed at the Milky Way over a clear Atacama sky and experienced moon-like surroundings in Iceland and Bolivia. I've ridden an elephant (which makes me a Mahout), a donkey and a few camels - my first camel's name was Michael Jackson... I've been to the paradise islands in the Caribbean where we witnessed perfect sunsets while sailing on a yacht, and on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world in Brazil. If sunsets are awesome, sunrises are magical - if it is in ancient ruined Jesuit town in Argentina, in Bali, in Machu Picchu or just to meet monks at sunrise collecting alms in Laos. Sunrise is a promise of the upcoming day; sunset puts you to rest. I've gaped jaws dropped at Mona Lisa in Paris, Davide in Florence and Gaudi masterpieces in Barcelona; visited ancient ruins of Greek, Roman, Mayan, Incan and Egyptian civilizations; I've biked around Stockholm, Bagan, Hue and Angkor Wat, scootered Saigon at night and Mandalay at early morning, was lost in Asian megalopolis of Seoul, Tokyo, Mumbai, Bangkok, Singapore & Beijing. I have swam with sea lions, listened to a whale singing, dived with barracudas and baby sharks and went on a safari in Ngoro-Ngoro, passed time on river cruises in Niger and Mekong. Sahara is mesmerising, so is Patagonia. Mt Fuji is stunningly beautiful, the Congolese Heart of Darkness is scary, brutally dangerous and surreal - especially if you are on a motorcycle speeding downhill with no roads, pouring rain coming your way, while listening to some Chinese folk music in the middle of an African jungle. In fact, it was almost a time travel; I've met a guy who had more kids than t-shirts. In West Africa I've met people for whom camera was a scary thing for. Experience of meeting a religious leader in the middle of a desert can be scary, but of a West African village - an eye opener. Standing in the Colosseum, in front of the Dome of Rock, in the Red Square, in front of the White House, or in the Tienanmen Square - you can feel history was made here, you can breath it! I've dined with an American billionaire and lunched with French Foreign Minister. I've met with African ex-guerrilla fighter and hung out with a former US marine-turn-politician. He chose targets in Iraq to shoot, which meant for him he defended his country. He changed his approach after a trip to Europe. I drunk tea with Tuaregs who told me about climate change. I was invited to a house of an Asian entrepreneur who served us crabs which were put into boiling water alive. I guess they could have not been fresher. I have sea kayaked in Halong Bay. I have run 2 marathons & 13 half marathon races. My favourite cities are stunning Rio, vibrant Marrakesh (Djemma el Fna!) & overwhelming Jerusalem (especially coupled with trendy Tel Aviv) & my fav European places are breathtaking Paris, gorgeous Barcelona & cosy Prague. Always hungry for more.
