Hi. I’m Michal. I’m travelling through life mostly on foot. I value minimalism in hiking as well as in life. I’m a fan of environmentally friendly living, ultralight hiking, compassion and the Leave No Trace attitude. I dislike capitalism, consumerism and formal authorities. I hike, laugh and love a lot.
Hikingisgood is mostly my project but you’re welcome to contribute if you feel like you’d be a good fit and you have something to say. I’m always open for new friendships and stories about hiking or DIY guides on the topic “How to make our world a better place through hiking”. Gender, religion, age or a skin color don’t matter. Teaming up is good. Hiking is good.
I lived pretty common life for a while. I did my studies, my second studies, my third studies, my first job, my second job and my third job. I wasn’t really sure what’s going on so in 2014, I left my home country to learn about the world. I’m still not sure what’s going on but I enjoy it much more.
I used to be a crazy triathlete, had 3 jobs, studied full time and still caved to the social pressure to get drunk every weekend. Luckily I had my mid life crisis young. Now I’m all about slow, simple and frugal. Don’t eat crap, don’t buy crap, don’t wear crap. Go hiking instead.
For a while I felt guilty for how privileged I am, but later I figured it’s not about “me”, it’s about how to help the world with all the resources you’ve got. And luckily most good things in life are free: water, oxygen, mountains and friendships. Going bush reminds you how little you need just to be happy.
