Keen photographer who seems to find beauty where others see grey clouds in a white-out, or blurred bin bags stuck on fences. Went to the Siberian far north to enjoy the Arctic wilderness with reindeer herders but ended up stuck in a derelict, yet still very polluted mine town. Passionate about mountaineering too, but mostly the indulging, sensation-accelerating part of it.
A living superlative. When most people cook, they simply pick whatever they have in their fridge and let their imagination improvise something. Eric found this approach ineffective and decided to read and memorise all recipes he could come across. For most people, exercising means a one-hour long session at the gym or a 5-mile run. Eric seems to prefer 45-hour long, 100-mile trail running. Eric is extreme.
Born the same year as Erwin, wrote a solver for Countdown's maths puzzle at an age when Erwin was still playing with his Lego. Felt compelled to become a ski instructor when he came to realise that his passion for his online gaming was leading to a rather radical experience of social distancing.
Passionate about mountaineering, mostly the sweaty, resilience-defying part of it. Climbed the Mont-Blanc in one go (from Chamonix to the summit and back in 16 hours) instead of 2 days like normal people because he got wrongly concerned that he could miss his train. A true visionary, he majored in marxist-leninist economy as he felt that one day it would be pretty cool to mention it.
