During my expedition to the Arctic in 1993 with Wojciech Moskal we began to think about reaching the North Pole, something that had never been done by a Pole before (pun intended!). We believed we would succeed because anything is possible. After many months of preparation and raising necessary funds, we set off in Spring of 1995. We reached the North Pole after 72 exhausting days. A few months later, I reached the South Pole by myself, becoming the first person in history to have reached both ends of the world in one year. My dreams came true. But it was not the end of my journey. I continue getting new ideas and inspiration and enjoy engaging in worthwhile initiatives.
