Rest time now. About the journey: why?

Rest time now. About the journey: why?
Balkans special night: watching Underground for the 6th time. First saw this film when I was 17, but cannot get enough of it. Without doubt, one of the few cinematographic pure gems from one of the greatest movies director, Emir Kusturica. In other news, today I was interviewed for the first time regarding my walk around the world by Robin Scott, reporter of Harrogate Advertiser. The hardest question was still the same: why? As ...

Tent options for the Europe leg of the adventure

Which is the best tent in the world? As of now, I’m looking at three options in choosing the right tent for my Europe leg of my walk around the world on The World Photo Tour. Below I offer some details on each of them, each presented with their pros and cons. The order is random. Feel free to share your experience or advice. General considerations I am not looking at buying a 3 season tent reasoning that I’ll only be travelling ... [read more]

Thank you, Jim! (best weapon advice I received so far)

I’m not thinking straight any more. Well, that’s just sometimes. When the fear grows – that fear that I’ve been writing about, that fear that makes you feel so very small, the one that shrinks you to nothing. When that undefinable and immense sense of insecurity takes hold of my whole being, when it goes so deep that it shakes my inner self and gets me stunned. It’s in these moments when I need to face the grim fact: somewhere, ... [read more]

Walking the walk training photo shoot

Today I woke up at 12, like a real champion – still fiddling with bits and bobs on the website keeps me up late in the night. Ate, sent some more partnership emails, then geared up and loaded the backpack for a little bit of training, photo and video shooting, courtesy of Rachael and Simon of SiRAstudio. Headed to Fewston at The Robinsons (jeez, what a location!) and walked the walk. So here’s the result, you’ll have a nice ... [read more]

Another day

Another day
My previous day began at 8 in the morning. The sun was hardly rising, still finding its strength to get rid of the thin white sheet of crispy frost. A quick shower, a quick cigarette, a quick morning playlist to get me ready for the day and off to work, at the new job. Yup, a new extra job, even if the day I’ll be going walking around the world is getting closer and closer. I need any penny I can get. The interview was four days ... [read more]

Boots made for walking

Boots made for walking
In my concern, the most important piece of gear when considering walking around the world (that’s besides some really high-quality pairs of outdoor socks) is represented by the boots. And it’s quite easy to figure out why – my feet will need all my attention and care. Mine are some heavy-duty Gore Tex Berghaus boots. Not the latest season, but they will certainly be pushed to their limits on the very long road ahead. I know I’ll ... [read more]
