“Third time is a charm”

A few days ago I quit my job as middle-management at a multinational here in Brazil. I had a decent salary, great health plan, meal plan, life insurance, and a bonus plan. Why am I writing about these things really? I guess because these are means to an end.

A season of climbing is every climber´s dream. To stay at one region for a summer or whichever other season, several weeks or months, is the epitome of desire for anyone in love with climbing.

I’ve got a one way ticket, a plan which is to have no plan, and a desire to simply climb as many peaks as I can. I´m about to spend even more than the entire season in the Cordillera Blanca and possibly even in the Cordillera Huayhuash.

So, at around 5 pm on April 17th I´ll be unemployed, but free to roam to world´s peaks as I wish. May it last long, and be the most fun ever. I wish myself some awesome climbs!
