She later sealed this connection with a doctoral degree in Kinanthropology* at the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport.

I Want a Granchild or a Scooter for My 60th Birthday

When you meet her in the street, you wouldn´t probably say that she has recently been sixty. She walks fast and energetically and you may probably not catch up with her. She always prefers stairs to an elevator or escalator and if you accidentally went on a trip to the mountains with her, don´t be looking forward to a sightseeing pace. Even now, thirty-two years after the end of her career, she can´t deny feeling her racing spirit inside of her.

Scandinavia is a charming place: once it grabs you, it doesn’t let go. Snared once by its wild beauty, Zdenek Valenta came back a year later to taste its magical mix of exuberant nature and friendly natives. This time he took along his girlfriend, Jana.

Eight Days In Hell Called “1,000 Miles Adventure”

25. 8. 2014 | Jan Marx

Great adventures give rise to experiences as gently as spring follows winter. With my beloved wife we were discussing the ideas for a Christmas present for my brother, who had already experienced and tried many adventures. In the end, I came up with an innovative idea and my brother found a Yedoo City scooter under the Christmas tree. Nothing seemed suspicious, as I say.

Old And Beautiful

The Czech Republic is a land of scooters. Not only the popular Czech puppet Hurvínek or Werich’s wise Zdenička (Queen Scooter the First), but also writer Josef Čapek or former President Václav Havel were scooter fans. Moreover, the Czech Republic ranks among the world’s biggest producers of scooters for adults. The producers follow the rich tradition, which Jakub Bostl tries to explore and describe. His collection comprises 50 models and he would like to build a museum for these vehicles in future.

The Badlands. A Journey Beyond The Frontiers Of The Real World

9. 12. 2013 | Vendula Kosíková

David Ceccarelli and his co-adventurer who accompanies him on his journeys - Andrea Gesmundo – chose the remote region of the Canadian Badlands as another scooter expedition destination. The arid, parched and dreary territory does not evoke the idea of the Canadian landscape boasting endless forests, Rocky Mountains and breathtaking waterfalls. Average tourists rarely visit the Badlands.
