It’s interesting how your mind can continuously expand and adopt new (preferably higher) levels of what is “normal”.

Before leaving to the seaside I was intimidated: It’s too far. Too hard. It’s not worth it., etc. My mind was trying to justify fear and lack of engagement through artificial logical constructs. I say artificial because now that I’m home writing this, the whole experience of long distance cycling is beginning to feel normal. Normal = the norm. And shit! Look at my large smile in these pictures! So none of my fears were entirely justified - they were a construct of my petty inner self.

I hope no woman is reading this...

Of course, some of the potency of the joke has gone as I'm not that fluent in spoken English.

But I laughed like crazy when I first heard it. We also use a very specific Romanian word for ....... which makes the joke funnier.

I hope you're not offended by the joke but if you are, you'll know to never come back here again. Watch the video below to see what I'm talking about.

Hiking oanst by Salewa
Just a few days ago, I was shooting a video with my friend. We were at a training site for IRATA. A place where rope access workers get their international certification which allows them to work in this industry.

Of course I was supposed to make a video with this but unfortunately I forgot my camera at home… All this after I passionately prepared for the trip (getting an extra battery from a friend, buying lots of Duracell batteries for a video led lamp, etc.).

Varavon Slidecam V800 Slider Review

Dolly Slider by VaravonSlidecam V800 Varavon Dolly SliderV800 Varavon Slidecam Dolly

The first thing that I noticed when I got the Varavon Slidecam V800 slider was it's weight. Or its lack thereof.

This baby is ultra light. And I'm saying this with excitement because I've been carrying the motorized slider quite a bit these past two weeks. So having a light slider is good for a change.
