About the Book

“When I started my new job, I visited San Francisco again. Our offices were in a fifty two-storey skyscraper, and from high up I had a great view of the Bay Area. I saw Alcatraz right in the middle, and I could see Angel Island in the distance. Somehow I just thought, I can swim that …” TJ Halbertsma is an ordinary guy doing extraordinary things. He’s got a regular job, wears a suit to work, and takes the Tube to the office every day. He has no special abilities, but he’s curious, and whenever he gets the chance he looks for adventure and explores around the world. In fact, he’s climbed the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, and the Eiger, walked to the North Pole and the South Pole, crossed the English Channel on a stand-up paddleboard, and escaped from Alcatraz, just to name a few of his adventures. The way he sets himself a goal and achieves it will make you understand that you too are capable of much more than you think. There are no limits to what you can achieve as long as you’re willing to commit yourself. The ten adventures in this book are an inspiration for you to climb your own mountain in life and to fulfil your dreams, whatever they are. Just go for it!
