can't be overtaken !

It makes me so damn angry to see that all the pristine places I visited in the north will be gone in a few years, just because of some damn greedy business people and politicians. Money is all what they want, environment they don't care about ...

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both. ”

I have spent about 26,000 km in a boat on the Yukon River and some 100,000 km in boats in general ...

7 times the Yukon River in its full length and 2 times to the half I thing is enough ...

Ich versuche so unabhängig und autark, wie es nur möglich ist zu leben. Daher versuche ich auf kleinem Raum mit so wenig wie möglich klarzukommen.

Für mich ist der Verzicht auf den „normalen“ Luxus kein Verzicht von Lebensqualität.  Eher umgekehrt. 

Ich habe den größten möglichen Luxus, ich habe Zeit für all die Dinge die mich gerade interessieren.

Leben und leben lassen das ist meine Devise ! 

Die kapitalistischen Bestrebungen nach immer mehr, interessieren mich gar nicht ...

Für mich sind alle Menschen gleich 

Ich bin sehr für ein gutes Miteinander aller Völker, Rassen und Kulturen auf unserem Planeten.

Ich beurteile die Menschen nicht womit Sie ihren Lebensunterhalt verdienen, was für ein Auto Sie fahren , wie sie sich kleiden oder wo und wie Sie wohnen.

Ich Interessiere mich mehr dafür, wie Sie mit anderen Menschen umgehen.

Ob und wie Sie Schwierigkeiten überwinden und Herausforderungen annehmen und welche Fähigkeiten ich von ihnen und sie von mir lernen können !

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone.

This is the way to success on an expedition.

I'm 55 now , I'm getting old but I am forever young at heart ...

You can tell by looking at me that I've got more miles behind me than I've got in front of me. When you reach that point, if you've got some good years left, you want to make sure that you use them wisely.

We are always the same age inside. Know that you are the perfect age. Each year is special and precious, you can only live it once. Do not regret growing older, it's a privilege denied to many...

I am an adventurer

© Copyright by Ch. Breier

Adventure is my passion. I am not driven by any records, world-firsts or races, but have an intense curiosity to explore the world’s more remote and extreme locations, exploring is like super food for my soul, and a life without it has little appeal to me ! Adventure can and should be undertaken purely for adventure’s sake. It needs no higher justification. Adventure is a tremendously powerful and positive experience that enriches the life of those who it touches. The more people who embark on adventure and exploration, the better off for our world. You never come back as the same person, it will change you forever...

The elements that make up my perfect adventure are:

It is unique
It has no guarantee of success
It is hugely challenging, pushing me far out of my comfort zone
It involves real risk which requires complete commitment to manage

“It takes courage to live as your authentic self. Some people, even family members, may not want to accept the real you. But if you don’t live that way, you become less of yourself and limit what you can do. Walking to the beat of your own drum allows you to use all your gifts and be there for others. Every choice you make contains the choice to be authentic. When you choose to live as who you really are, you become your best self.”
