We obviously have a thing for merino wool. Nowadays, when outdoor shops are full of advanced synthetic materials with cutting-edge technology, our love for merino doesn't come merely from its outstanding functionality. It comes from nature itself.
As outdoor enthusiasts, we live close to nature, we love our time spent in it and we believe everyone has their share of responsibility for its protection. That's one of the reasons we like merino wool – because it is a 100% natural and sustainable material.
I have no travel goals. There is no must-see list of countries in my head. There are just places I would like to see one day. It is only after I visit the place when I realize it's fascinating and would like to go back again. The northernmost state of India, Jammu and Kashmir, certainly belongs among these places. We are planning to do something that probably no-one with legendary Trabant, Polish Fiat and ancient Jawa 250 has ever tried: to pass the dreaded Himalayas in Kashmir and reach the altitude of 5,300 m above sea level on tires.
The Caucasus is still a relatively exotic place to most of us, we have just a few romantic images and very little information. That's why we love reading about adventures of travellers, who explored this far-away region. Our friend and customer Marek Kochan fulfilled his dream to conquer Elbrus, the highest peak of the Caucasus and Europe. He sent us an interesting story he kindly allowed to us to share with you as well.
