I studied physical education at university which introduced me to Maciej Kurek a climber, a mountaineer, the president of an Alpine Club and active promoter of mountain adventures in Opole (my home town). After intense training on my home made a wall, I made the transition to the outdoors and took many climbing trips to the limestone of the Jura and trekked in the Tatra mountains.

I moved to London in 2004 and after settling in, I decided to take professional courses to become a rock climbing instructor and coach. I quickly improved and developed my skills on the excellent and accessible climbing walls around London. Since then I have climbed at many crags in Europe and beyond. Currently, I work with a number of climbing walls and sports centres to teach and train both children and adults. I've set up a Polish Alpine Club here in the UK with my old climbing buddy, Tomek, to share our passion and knowledge. It was after this, in 2014, I set up climbingholidays.eu businesses.

Climbing and mountaineering mean freedom. It means a journey into the mountains and into yourself. It is a great way to live. Climbing is a way to overcome weakness. You can discover how tough you can be in extreme situations, how much you can trust in and rely on a partner and how close you can be to complete happiness. I have found that anyone can conquer their own Everest, whatever it might be. It's not the height or the objective difficulty that counts; it's the commitment and effort that is more important, it's about what that experience means to the individual. These experiences, a connection to what's truly real, are rare in our rat-race world. By climbing I'm trying to discover these moments.
