For the first episode of the #onthegoTransylvania Mountain Festival Podcast we invited longtime friend Cosmin Andron as a guest.
Cosmin is an educator, philosopher, PADI divemaster and IFMGA mountain guide and also the initiator of Eastern European Mountain Guides Association.
EEMGA was set up in February 2016 as a programme meant to establish a consistent training for professional Mountain Guides in East European countries, without IFMGA member associations. EEMGA has since successfully trained the first generation of Eastern European mountain guides who received their certifications in 2018 and is currently training the second generation.
In this episode we talk about climbing as a lifelong passion, philosophy and academia, as well as about professional reconversion and creating one’s own path.
