Are you an adventure gentleman?
I’m happy to have you visiting my blog. I guess you’re wondering who is behind it. Well, my name is Andres Beregovich and I’m a Marketing Consultant & Pro Photographer -based in Munich- for the outdoor industry.
I’m 37 years old and someone who enjoys life very much. However, for much of my adult life I've had a simple problem (simple, but still a problem) and that’s the reason why I created Adventure Gentleman. Allow me go further into that.
You see, when it comes to outdoor activities, especially extreme sports like climbing or ski-mountaineering, etc.
The industry has been feeding us (and I have helped on that) with an image where people who are serious about these activities, are basically hippies, completely against the system, living in a van and escaping the 5 to 9 job in pursuit of a better life.
While that’s totally fine, the reality for some of us (the majority) is completely different, and this frame leaves many -people like you and me- out, just because we actually enjoy having a good, normal job, where we earn well and we have normal schedules, meaning we can practice our hobbies in our freetime. And we do so in style!
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the guys out there looking to live a life that is made on day-by-day basis but, that is simply not for me. This leads to the core part of the problem.
If -like me- you’re someone who enjoys the feel of a good suit, the taste of fine whisky and the thrill of a sports car (outdoor people drive vans, remember?) well, then you won't be represented by the "outdoor" profile and you won't be considered someone who is really serious about the way you practice your favorite sports, right!?
People tend to think you're too sophisticated to be a hardcore athlete and if you're too hardcore in your sport, then you basically only know how to eat out of a pot in a camping place :)
This axiomatic dilemma led me to believe I had to give up one side in favor of the other, for the sake of being serious (for whatever side I chose).
But in time, my own nature made impossible for me to tolerate that notion and I simply understood that you can be both sophisticated and wild at the same time and on the right space!
This blog is made to show you this is possible and to inspire you to go outside and crush the mountains hard, train like a beast, do amazing expedition travels at the same time you can enjoy your urban life, the finest food, a luxury hotel and all the greatness that a modern man can aspire to experience.
Remember, life is about balance!
1.- I DO NOT GET PAID BY ANYONE TO DO THIS (I HAVE MY REGULAR JOB FOR THAT)
2.- I DO NOT HAVE ANY AFFILIATE MARKETING PROGRAM WITH ANY BRAND AND YOU WON'T FIND AFFILIATE LINKS HERE.
3.- IF I TALK/RECOMMEND A PRODUCT IT IS BECAUSE IT WORKS FOR ME AND I -PERSONALLY- LIKE IT. THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT MIGHT WORK FOR YOU THE SAME WAY.
4.- I DO THIS BECAUSE I LIKE DOING IT, NOTHING ELSE (LIKE I SAID, I ALREADY HAVE A JOB).
5.- IF A BRAND WANTS TO PAY ME TO DO ANY OF THIS, YOU'LL BE THE FIRST TO KNOW AND I WILL MAKE SURE TO LET THEM KNOW MY OPINION CAN'T BE BOUGHT. IF THEIR PRODUCT IS SHIT, THEN THAT'S WHAT I WILL SAY.
