About 10 years ago, I reallocated to South Korea where I learned at the beginning of each year to reflect on the past and to set new plans. Through all those years this approach helped me turn many dreams into incredible adventure stories. And now, lured by the beauty of the nature, I am back in the mountain again.Read More
In Europe there are about 8000 brown bears left and 5500 of them inhabit the woods of Romania. Having trekked in 50+ countries around the world, I never had the chance to meet a bear in the wilderness. So given that I recently reallocated to Romania, this became my top adventure desire.Read More
Finding great adventures requires everything, but traveling to the opposite site of the earth. And there you go. An early fall morning, equipped with my trusty camping gear, food for a few days, camera with plenty of batteries, and lots of positive vibes I boarded the intercity bus from Sofia (Bulgaria) to Skopje (Macedonia). This was the beginning of my new expedition dedicated to the summit of each Balkan country highest peak. A project that will spread across 10 different neighbor countries in the South East of Europe.Read More
My celebration for “Kom-Emine” adventure was rather short. Quick last arrangements and I took the first flight to Papua New Guinea (PNG). This was the official start of my 3rd expedition under the photography project “Vanishing Worlds”.Read More
The name of cape Emine (Bulgaria) has Arabic origin. It means “fearless and courageous”.
Ever since I start thinking of adventures the idea to cross Bulgaria from West to East popped up in my head. This route required trekking on the back of Mt. Stara Planina for 600+ km, climbing of 100+ peaks, and to accumulate denivelation of 20k+ m. To make things even more complicated, at the central part of the mountain 279 days a year are dominated by fogs and storms with winds often exceeding 100km/h. Along the course, there are only handful mountain refuges and water fountains, giving limited opportunity to refill. My idea was to do this adventure alone because I had only 17 days to completed it and I feared, if I take anyone with me, I will be slowed down and my chances for success will near zero.
