Alex Honnold - Interview for Mountain Portal

Alex Honnold

Alex, welcome to Poland. Is this your first visit here?

No, to be honest, this is my second visit in Poland. But, it might be interesting that I have some roots in your country. My grandparents were both Poles and my mother speaks a little bit of Polish too. I, on the other hand, don’t know many words in your language, it’s very difficult, so I only know: na zdrowie and some nasty word which I can’t use right now. And how to say: “come on!” in your language? Is there anything similar? Is it like: “Dawaj, dawaj!”?
