RIP Tomaž Humar


Tomaž at Kolovrateater last year (taken by me)

I came home from vacation (more on that later) last night to find that the wonderful Tomaž Humar had died. An intrepid mountainclimber from our region of the world, he had insane drive and never stopped pushing himself, even after nearly dying in the mountains of Pakistan . I was lucky enough to meet him last year at the opening of Kolovrateater when The Captain spotted him and slinked up to get a little fanboy.

Tomaž seemed remarkably laid back considering all he'd been through and accomplished. I thought after the horrors of the Pakistan experience, he'd hung up his gear, but alas that was not the case. He headed back out this year, but despite his best efforts, Tomaž didn't make it through this last climb (in Langtan Lirung in the Himalayas). Really sad, but he'll will be remembered by thousands of fans, family, and friends.

You can read more about him and his final climb here.

Unfortunately, quite a few undaunted athletes end up being silenced by the very thing that they love...

So very sorry to hear about your friend. I just stumbled across your blog while searching for info on Slovenia. My wife and I would love to bring our 3 year old son there to live and work. (based on what little we know and the beautiful photos we have seen) Any recommendations for aspiring Slovs?

Hey M.T.

Sorry I forgot to respond to you. The best advice I can give you is LEARN SLOVENIAN and find jobs before you come or BETTER YET have an idea and the startup money to start your own company. Good luck!
