Nietzsche, “Many meters above sea level–but how many more above ordinary men!”
I love travelling and exploring bio-diverse sustainable regions in the World and I am passionate about Nordic Walking in flat, rocky environment terrains and Vertical Meters scaling (Mountains climbing with poles), exploring ecological cultural heritage and UNESCO World Heritage trails. I climbed my first mountain, using Poles, in 2013, Mount Toubkal in Marrakech, Morocco, highest mountain in the Atlas and North Africa at 4,167 m for a charity cause for Médeçins sans Frontières “Doctors without Borders” and ever since then I was inspired by the beauty and majesty of Mountains and biodiversity that I am keen in portraying in most of my artworks.
In my free time, I am glad to inspire, promote and train people on the technique of Nordic Walking in the Cities, Parks, National Parks, Mangroves, Mountains, Rainforests, Desert biomes and Wildlife Reserves trails for Health, Wellness and Conservation causes.
I am glad to share with you the Health benefits of the Nordic Walking technique and my Walks with Poles for Health and Wellness (NWFW) the majority of which are in Cultural Heritage and UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites.
Please join me in encouraging your parents, relatives, friends and all whom you care for in engaging alone, in groups and teams into this beneficial healthy Nordic Walking outdoor recreation sports activity suitable for all ages.
Walking in nature is beneficial for our mind, and the fresh oxygen in nature calms us down and helps combat depression. Varied terrain activates the brain in a completely different way than walking on asphalt pavements.
The sceneries and varied landscape may also inspire you to walk more effectively while also benefiting from nature, its species, flora and fauna and colorful cultural heritage sites in National Parks and trails that introduce you to new cultures of indigenous people you come across along your walks and offer you a new learning experience about nature and the local inhabitants. Pole walking in nature keeps your mind fresh!
Trekking, also known as hiking or mountain climbing, is an outdoor sport that offers a variety of exercise levels to different people. Trekking appeals to Adventure Trekkers climbing some the world’s highest mountains, casual day hikers who enjoy following easy trekking routes, and everyone in between such as myself.
There is no doubt that Smart Trekkers use good quality Trekking Poles!
Using Trekking Poles helps balancing the body weight in a healthier way while trekking, increases stability, and they are shock absorbing and protecting your knees and joints.
Tug on anything at all and you’ll find it connected to everything else in the universe.
I am wondering about how many of us can recall the first valleys, hills, rocks, or the first big majestic mountain they ascended with poles or climbed and looked around them, up and down and to admire the beauty and richness of nature’s biodiversity, colors and wildlife and were touched by this feeling of exhilaration and freedom. Feeling and smelling the beauty and power of nature’s positive energy, far away from the hustle and bustle of city life, is the most natural way of channeling our negative energies residues and clearing our thoughts to attain self-empowerment and inner peace. I am glad to share with you my Walks and climbs with poles most of them in UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites.
