Ing. Biotechnology (FH)
Africa was a dream long before I developed my passion for
motorbiking. These days, at an age of about 5, I wanted nothing
more than being"Czymek", hunting wild animals with
a camera. As time went by I became more realistic and during
my studies of Biotechnology I got more and more interested
in medical basic research. But, if I'm not busy investigating
breast cancer or osteoporosis, my heart still beats for Africa.
That's why I couldn't say no to a job offer from South Africa.
I can satisfy my second passion - off road biking, which I
like more from year to year since I've been 16. Several motorbikes
have been doing a good job since then. Beginning with a DT80,
growing up to a KLR 250 and finally riding the "proper"
bikes: KLR 600, DR 650 RSE, KTM 620 LC4, BMW 650 Dakar and
now the KTM Adventure. So far the motorbiking highlights are,
besides some journeys around Europe (Greece, Italy, Corse),
for sure our trip to Namibia in 2000 and our holidays in Lesotho
around Christmas 2002. What's also always a lot of fun for
me, is to give security trainings with Stehlin
Motorradtraining and from time to time to jump around
on a motocross track with like-minded bikers. My big dream
for the future is to participate in one of the well known
If there is snow in the mountains I feel like Heidi and my
legs start "itching". However, on two laths I am
useless. That's why I belong to the "Snowboarding Department"
of our skiing club. If the snow is missing and the motorbike
has a day off, I will be most probably found being busy with
some of other sport (MTB, Tennis, Volleyball) or enjoying
a BBQ with some friends.
My expectations for our big trip are the "touching"
experience with the African people and some challenge and
fun on the motorbike.
I admire Heidi for the fact, that she's also up for that adventure.
