The leaders and owners of the Mountain Travel & Adventure Agency are us: Ewa Stachura and Nika Gomiashvili. We are first and foremost friends, not only partners. Kazbek is a special mountain for us, not only because it is the place of our work, but above all because it was there, on the trail to the top of Kazbek, where we met for the first time. Although at the beginning it would seem that everything separated us, it quickly turned out that we were on the same page and immediately felt that together we could do something really cool. This “something” is our Mountain Freaks Mountain Travel & Adventure Agency, which we treat as our common child and our greatest success. It is not only our business, but above all, the fulfillment of our dreams to be able to do what we like and share the passion with others in our lives. An inseparable element of our team is Agnieszka Zieja, who co-creates our agency with us from the beginning and helps us in all the activities and projects we implement. Our main motto, which we follow every day (and in life and at work) is: “Life is not measured by the amount of breaths, but by the amount of moments that are breathtaking.” And with this belief we try to inspire you during our expeditions. Below you will find a short biography of each of us. We asked our co-workers to write them, because it was difficult for us to write about ourselves. We hope that we will be able to meet you in person and let you get to know us better during joint expeditions.
A Polish lawyer and manager by profession, a few years ago she decided to settle permanently in Georgia, at the feet of Kazbek. Here is her home and everything that is most important to her. Mountains have been her passion for years, but the fact that she settles in the Caucasus was the biggest surprise for her. She deals with the administration and management of our agency. She runs our Facebook profile, updates our website, writes e-mails and messages, receives your phones, issues bills, takes care of advertising etc. She is also responsible for directing our expeditions from the moment when you enroll, through the whole process of preparation, and finally – during the mountain attack. So far, she has been several times at the top of Kazbek and a few times at Elbrus. This number is still increasing because she participates in all entries of our open groups during each season as the manager and leader of the expedition. In addition to expeditions to Kazbek and Elbrus, she also runs our other trekkings, and is also a pilot and guide during our trampings. Of course you will meet her in our office, where she talks with you for hours, gives advice and tips and sometimes forces you to change your plans when she sees that you plan to go to Kazbek in sneakers. She loves Thai cuisine, green tea, grain coffee, rock’n’roll, books and long baths in the tub. Travels and mountains are her greatest passion, that is why when she is not in Georgia, she probably stays at the other end of the world visiting and reaching next peaks. Nothing is impossible for her, that’s why she plans to visit all countries and to stand at the highest mountain in the world someday.
