Karlo Germadnik

Linguist, Bouldering Enthusiast, and Writer at 57hours

Karlo’s first brush with the great outdoors came at a very early age, accompanying his grandmother on chestnut and mushroom scouring trips in northwestern Croatia’s Žumberak mountains. While pursuing his English, Swedish, and Mandarin Chinese degrees at the University of Zagreb he got by on translation, proofreading, and tutoring gigs, before consolidating his love for the wilderness as a full-time writer for 57hours. He recently took up bouldering, which is why you’re likely to find him complaining about his latest aches and tweaks.
