As I transitioned into adulthood, I started to crave more – a hunger that saw me try my hand at plunging, skiing, running, and cycling. (I’ve also been a self-proclaimed Yogi since 2006). When I was 59, I embarked on a trek in Nepal – a truly life-changing experience. Since my retirement, I have more time than ever to feed my hiking passion. Back in 2014, I started my Nordic Walking journey. I never miss a week. In fact, I assist with defining hiking routes and guiding groups of hikers – new and intermediate – something I’ve been doing for over a decade.
In 2019, I was off to Tyrol, Austria, for a week-long Nordic Walking escapade. I never grow tired of finding fauna and flora, sightseeing, turning back time to explore history, or engaging in individual and team sports. It keeps me young.
At the same time, a desire to fulfill a spiritual need has become essential, that’s how I have been involved in the regular practice of yoga for more than 15 years.
