V preteklih dneh sem obiskal Revelstoke in se skoraj zaletel v prijateljico iz Nemčije, medtem ko sem hodil po uličnem sejmu z znakom 'FREE HUGS'. Tako sem se zahvalil prebivalcem Revelstoka, ki so mi pomagali zrasti v odgovornega člana skupnosti gorskega mesteca v zadnjih treh zimah. Pripravil sem tudi kratek zahvalni govor pri sveti maši. Prav po kanadsko! 😇
Prijateljica in njena gostiteljica sta me povabili da preživim nekaj dni z njima. Šli smo na Cevni vlakec smrti na smučišču Revelstoke in skozi okno splezali v opazovalni stolp za gozdne požare. S klicem me je presenetil moj duhovni oče in me povabil, da z njim obiščem nekaj sorodnikov in se odpeljem v Vancouver. *In the last few days I visited Revelstoke and ran into my friend from Germany while strolling around street market with 'FREE HUGS' sign. This was my way of saying thank you to people of Revelstoke, BC, who helped me grew into responsible member of their small mountain town community in last three winters. I also prepared a short speech at Sunday mass. So Canadian! 😊
My friend from Germany and her host invited me to spend some days with them. We went for a ride on a Pipe Coaster at Revelstoke Mountain Resort and hiked up to fire look-out.
Later in the week i got a surprise call from my spiritual dad who invited me to visit some of his relatives and ride with him to Vancouver.
Kolesarim, zaradi nore slepe ljubezni do kolesa in potk po gozdu, miru v gozdu in gorah. Moja ati in mami sta prav tako veliko kolesarila.
⛪Včasih sem šel v cerkev iz (straho) spoštovanja do mojih staršev. Potem sem začel potovati, brati knjige in se spoprijateljil z nekaj ljudmi, ki so mi bili zelo všeč. Potem sem počasi s spremenil moja prepričanja, zagrabil za nekaj novih navad, ki so imele smisel in so mi prinesle zadovoljstvo in mir.
Še vedno sem katolik.
Samo da sedaj verjamem zaradi izkušenj, ne pripovedi.
Danes sem hvaležen Jezusu, mojim staršem in ljudem, ki sem jih spoznal. Vsi vi mi pomagate rasti.
🚴♂️I keep riding bikes for the love of mountain biking and calmness in mountains and forests. My parents did it too.
⛪I kept going to church out of respect (a bit of fear) of my parents. Then I started travelling, read some books and met some people that I liked a lot. Then I slowly changed my beliefs, started applying new habits to my life that made sense and brought happiness and peace to me.
I am still catholic.
Only now I believe because of experiences not told beliefs.
Today I am thanking God, my parents and people i met for helping me grow.
I met Jonathan tonight. He is self employed and does odd jobs with his truck. At the end of our conversation he made a meaningful statement, I could connect to a lot.
"People that grew up next to dictative person have trouble loving themselves. They often become workaholics and don't have a good measure in giving and receiving in relationships or at serving/getting paid at work. Change it personal vocabulary is the start of change. Please. Thank you. I apologize."

Wait what? Frankie? Naah. Better!
its Fernie. Let's see what life brings. Feels good.
Decision is made.
My luggage has been there for 3 days already. Sabotaged myself not to play it safe, while figuring my past out in Canmore. Got a job offer but i believe i am doing the right decision.
Just like 3 years ago when I hitchhiked to Revelstoke. The town that changed me forever!
For me hitchiking is like opening my mind and getting a delayed gratification to get to town i wish to get to.
When i say I am Canadian, i stand for #faith#family#patience#respectfulness#assertiveness#delayedgratification#canada
Mountain tops thru the window or this piece of shit boring square man-made idiotism! It makes me feel like I want to climb up there to the top office thru my carreer and just be less and less happy and have less time for family and things I love to do. CLIMB MOUNTAINS NOT CARREERS!!!
Yes, please stay in the city and give me more room in the big outdoors.
People in small towns smile more for 2 reasons:
1. They have time and they take it for all the fun stuff.
2. They earn their lifestyle with consistent, not hard work(tough but not stressful work enviroment). Therefore they live the DELAYED GRATIFICATION LIFESTYLE instead of instant gratification one.
Number 3 repeats very often in my life.
3months of snowboarding 1st winter in Revelstoke,
3years of running running business, until it started to feel like a job,
3 winters in Revelstoke until today...
I guess this is how long it takes me to be super happy and them move on to the next big thing.
Really Calgary??? Preventing homeless from sleeping on train station and preventing to see them everyday, ask ourselves what is more important: go to work, help fellow human. try being merciful once a week to them when we see them. Hug them, buy them a meal or what ever.
Mercy towards weak is an impulse and NOT a taught habit of human species.
Big cities are just the necessary evil for me. Third time in a big city in last 2 years and:
- i dont have a job
- i dont have a place to stay
- at least i know better of now and i wont buy a car before i get my next job.
Now look deeper!
Values in village: 1.family time 2.work that leaves energy for family and freetime activities 3.income that is just enough, but is never being discussed
Values in city: 1.type of job 2.income and lifestyle, ferraris and big toys 3. Nice view from apt.
