• Following a call to share the knowledge and experiences I gained during my travels, in 1996 I founded the Marek Kamiński Foundation. Its main mission is to aid people in need and with disabilities, and to run educational programs. Through the Foundation I got to know Jan Mela from Malbork, a then-teenager, who wanted to reach the word’s end. We pursued an expedition to reach that goal together – it was an immense challenge and responsibility but also a great success. Jan was the very first physically impaired teen, who reached both the North and South Pole. It was completed within one year back in 2005.

  • My daily work revolves around working for the Foundation, delivering lectures, writing books and going on adventures around the world. I am a member of several professional organisations, including the Polish Council of AA Business, Polish Literature Society, Polar Exploration Committee at the Polish Academy of Sciences (honorary member) and Sopot Sailing Club.

  • I am married and have two children – Pola and Kay. I begin every day with a cup of green tea and a walk on the beach. I’m also into sports and yoga. I love reading books – it brings me inner peace and recharges my batteries.

  • What’s next?

    I keep going and creating, I learn new languages and collaborate with interesting individuals. I also continue to travel with my family (my daughter Pola already joined me on my two expeditions). So definitely some more exciting adventures await…including a space trip perhaps…who knows!
