A Life Less Ordinary

is a collaboration between writer Mark Pawlak and photographer Julia Horbaschk.

It captures the spirit of people leading less ordinary lives through adventures and reveals what inspires them.

The project started at the Adventure Travel Film Festival and is heading off around the world in search of inspiring characters.
