Kārlis Bardelis

Rows and tells the story

The comfort zone of Kārlis is, without a doubt, being in the middle of an adventure. For now, his adventure portfolio holds a 60 days and 6247 kilometers long ride on cross- country roller skates from North Cape , the furthest Northern point of Europe, to the furthest Southern point in Gibraltar (2013). Kārlis has participated in „Pedal for no Medal” charity bicycle ride from Riga (Latvia) to Sochi (Russia), in 17 days cycling 2840 kilometers in winter conditions and raising more than EUR 8000 for the reconstruction of Children’s Hospital in Riga (2014). Also, he has crossed Finland on skies, for 250 km following the Polar Circle through a wild area (2014). In the summer of 2014, Kārlis participated in “Baltic Way” charity cycling marathon, crossing the three Baltic states in 24 hours and cycling 600 km.

Gints Barkovskis


In his previous incarnations, Gints had some important and some not so important jobs working in journalisms, film industry, education and private sector, including few years in an environmental resources management group where he shared his cell with Karlis. But there is much more to him that meets the eye – his adventure journal has records of Alps, Caucasus and Himalayas. His joyful attitude towards life and living has turned a page, and now there is only Atlantic ocean and nothing else, as far as you can see.

Gints about himself: “The more I live, the more fun it gets. This is how I came across the yoga of laughter, and I suggest laughing from your heart as much and often as you can.”
