Inspirational Outdoors is about adventures, great and small. Our purpose is to inspire and help you to get outside. Explore your surroundings in a new way, connect with people, create social networks and open opportunities for the future.
The Reasons Why
Gratitude, happiness and friendship. I know I’m on the right path when I point people in the right direction and see them connect with the surrounding scenery, with themselves and with each other; when they feel happiness and, for instance, meet the gust of a cold wind with a smile instead of hiding amongst their clothes with an empty look in their eyes.
Regarding my business. Imagine a peach. The outer skin is what I do (guiding, presentations etc), the flesh is how I do it. The core of everything, the answer to the question why? Can be found in the stone. To be a juicy peach, or for me to have a healthy business, we need to pay attention to all of the above.
I give you the opportunity to see the details in your backpack and the surrounding nature while traveling with me. I help you to raise your head when you’re tired and in return I have someone to appreciate the scenery, the wind and morning coffee with. And that, my friend, is why I do it.
Through time nature has given me so much: wonderful scenery, the whitest snow, the purest water, lovely days in our archipelagos, magical mountains, wildlife to admire and grass perfectly bent by the wind. It also presented me sunsets and firewood, tailwind to enjoy and headwinds to endure, rain that made me damp and wet, but also sun that made me dry and warm. Above all, nature taught me to appreciate things the way they are and to work with them, instead of against them. As a father I want to be able to give my daughter the same and, therefore, I took a stand and decided to keep my air travel to an absolute minimum.
Even if we remove the environmental aspect from the debate of whether to fly or not, my answer would have been the same. I want to have time to leave the place I was at, leave work physically and mentally, let go of thoughts and everyday life. I want to have time to sit on a train, change focus, meet people and look out the window. By allowing the transfer from pre-adventure to the adventure being a process, I get more in tune with the adventure and myself.
