Kite surfing

Kite surfing is a considerably new passion of mine. Apart from being a great hobby during summer holidays it offers much more. It is to me as deep as meditation for two reasons: firstly, it requires maximum concentration on one thing only, which calms down the mind. Secondly, just as sailing, it is necessary to ‘tune in’ with the forces of nature which, when done properly, gives a wonderful feeling of harmony.

Music

Music is a very important part of my life. There is not a single day that I don’t listen to music. Listening is enjoyable while playing and composing is like communicating in another realm.

Photography

Photography is a big passion of mine. There is something magical about photography as it makes it possible to ‘keep’ a moment ‘for ever’.  As such it almost allows us to transcend the inevitable passing of time.

I started taking pictures as a natural way to document traveling. It developed into a strong interest after a while, which brought a desire to master the basics of composition and technical aspects of photo-taking. As a result I studied photography for two years at Polish Union of Art Photographers. Together with my wife, who took the same course, we share our pictures at our website: www.acoupleofpictures.com

Traveling

I’ve been travelling for the last 24 years and managed to visit most Asian countries. Asia is an amazing place for a European. It offers an incredible variety of cultures and endless impressions and emotions. I enjoyed every single place, even though travelling in some remote places was not easy. I always liked meeting people and talking to them, trying to comprehend their approach to life and the values they subscribe to.
