More > amongst high-rise buildings in the projects, we became friends through commonly shared passion for snowboarding, travelling and meeting new people. Luckily for Marcin and myself, there were mountains only an 1.5 hours from where we lived, so we attempted to head there as often as we could. As time passed by, our journeys became longer, and we started to see that our Spot Map was quickly filling up.Gradually,our focus began to shift, that is how our plan for a trip to Alaska was born. AK was our unobtainable then, albeit perfect destination. Exotic travels finally became attainable, and after 10 years our Alaskan plan seemed possible, if not very realistic.
