In early 2016 I got admitted to the adventure program, “Adventure Academy” based in Stockholm. It was actually the third time I applied, the first was back in 2011. Yet somehow I feel that now on this third time, I was more ready, more mature somehow for the undertaking of it all and I knew what I wanted to do with the program. The following months entailed climbing, swimming in cold waters, getting basic knowledge of avalanches, hiking, swim-run events, and even heading to Norway for a five day grueling challenge in the Norwegian mountains. But most rewarding of it all, was to get to know everyone in the program, including the instructors and teachers. I am fully grateful for this highly rewarding experience.
