Born in Liberec, he spends his working time in the shop.
He appreciates cooperation with similar people in D.A. Work with products which I can back up. Fairness in the team and amongst our partners. Sunny spring lunches in Kateřinky at a camp fire.
Hobbies: Climbing, cycling, chopping wood.
Performance most appreciated: Probably one long bike trip, it lasted almost a year, from the Czech Republic to Morocco and back. But not for the distance as such, more for the discovery, adventure. Two wide-eyed boys straight out of school simply took their bikes, they had a year of time, and they went south towards the sun so that they would have something to remember as pensioners: )
Favourite area: Jizera mountains, Tisá, Tatra mountains.
Favourite season: Spring, because it is beautifully green. Autumn, because it is beautifully colourful and wet.
He likes reading: Poláček, Hemingway. Saturnin, School of the Small Tree. Seton – Two Little Savages. J.Giono – The Man who Planted Trees.
He likes to listen to: everything apart from brass band music, from Led Zeppelin, Nohavice, Gott and Rotrová, to Nightwisch, Bach and Händel.
Ideal weekend A sunny May weekend up in the Jizera mountains, with good friends in classic valleys. A couple of meters below me a backup, a real good friend. Bottles of beer cooling deep in a cleft. Coming back by train, with a refreshing stop off at Bártlovka.
Then… TONALE, all year round. TRANGO all the time. I don't go anywhere without BELAY stuffed in my bag somewhere. SUMMIT and CERRO TORRE, jackets which, unfortunately, customers don't understand fully, without a membrane, breathe really well, can be used for nearly anything, I won't hear a word against them.
Drinks: Rohozec Skalák 12° beer, Konrád 12° beer, Weizenbier Franziskaner, Kofola. Tea – proper loose tea.
Wisdom in conclusion: Kipling: "If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is wake up." My primary school teacher wrote this under a comment she made in my report booklet. I'm not like Pawlowská, and that is actually the only quote I remember - for one thing, it's short, and secondly it runs through everything. I think it might mean something like…don't just talk and dream about it, do it.
