A traveler
6 months out of 12 I spend travelling. I've been to Caucasus Mountains and the Elbrus, flew to Tanzania and climbed Kilimanjaro. I've been to the Himalayas and went to the Everest. I've wandered the Asian jungle in Thailand.

I have dozens of miles across Russia behind me. I've crossed the Bay of Biscay in the Shandart sailing ship. I've driven through the entire Europe and road-tripped to Tiksi at the Arctic Circle by myself.

Basically, I'm not a fan of lying on a couch.

About me
3 things about me you should know
Blogger
I record and write down everything that happens during my travels.

I also have a YouTube channel, where I talk about the places I visit, adventures and expeditions, military arts and the hardships that I face during my climbs.
#2
They call me a "blogger" and I don't agree.

Most of the popular bloggers are clowns and loungers, only caring about the views through nudity and stuff, all about the money.

What they do is shallow and boring. My blog is mainly a hobby for me.
However sometimes I get contacted by cool guys, offering a sponsorship (a service or a product). If you are looking for me to advertise a serious, masculine product or service or something relating to what I'm doing, feel free contact me.
An entrepreneur
Travelling takes money and flexible working hours. Which is why I'm doing business.
#3
My main business is an ARTGesheft marketing agency.

We increase sales via the Internet. We strive to make the profit more than the costs.

Sometimes I consult businesses on the SEO marketing.
Recently I've opened my own "Rognar" store, selling knives, sword blades and souvenirs. Cold weapons are my passion.

Also I will soon be launching several IT start-ups, which I will probably tell you about in my blog.
