I like traveling very much. It is an incomparable feeling when you watch the beauty of the world around you! It is travels that make your world outlook change, and the boundaries of the ordinary thinking expand. No wonder they say that one day spent in a new interesting place is equal to a year of your usual life. Recently, I have had an opportunity to visit the Indian Ocean, where mountains form a maze of twisty bays. Externally, rocks and mountains resemble fjords; no wonder this place on the north of Oman is called Arabian Norway. Officially, it is called the Musandam peninsula. This is a great place to go, where you can boat, see dolphins in a bay, take a swim on a wild beach and watch the colorful marine life! To see beauty in ordinary things and to be able to enjoy your life – in my opinion, this is one of the most important qualities of a modern person.

Our work requires concentration and attention, and if you do not spend your spare time doing something that helps to overcome the load, you can quickly “burn out”, which is often observed in the IT field. Therefore, 10 years ago I began to meditate. This is a very good method to preserve the internal balance, reduce stress and calm the mind. Meditation has a mental effect that improves concentration, increases performance at work and helps to get rid of unnecessary thoughts. Moreover, I get a good energy effect which helps me to feel many things and manage my energy body. Very often people are not able to completely relax and turn off all their thoughts. I can say that this ability will not come quickly. You should not struggle your own thoughts. As teachers of meditation say, “Thoughts are a lake, which is full of water, and if you have constantly thrown stones into the water thus making waves, there is nothing you can do but just wait until the waves calm down”.

Today we live in a dynamic world where everything is boiling, rapidly developing and changing. But, you know, sometimes you need to stop for a moment to look around and understand what beauty surrounds us. So, for already 5 years, I have spent my free time with a camera in hands. This activity brings me a lot of pleasure. While people are running around me, I stop to pay attention to reality that surrounds us, to focus on details, and to see the beauty around me. I like to notice moods, feelings, character and look for interesting stories. The genre is not important; this may be portraits, animals, nature, architecture. I would like to continue to develop in this direction, and create objects for shooting myself. This activity helps to relax, to get inspired and get away from everyday life, to turn my attention to something else.
Roman Kvasny, Co-Director of the Development Department
As a child, I dreamed of becoming an astronaut, because I wanted to experience the feeling of weightlessness. Unfortunately, for health reasons, I could not even become a pilot. So I’ve got interested in diving. As an amateur, I’ve been doing this sport for 10 years, and professionally – 3 years. Now I can dive to a depth of 18 meters, and enjoy all the beauty of the underwater world. Since water occupies 2/3 of the surface of our planet, the primary life is not on land but under water. The variety of underwater inhabitants is impressive: fish, jellyfish, stingrays, coral reefs, crabs and many other animals. It's great to feel a part of this world, to get to know its inhabitants, not to think about anything and enjoy weightlessness.
Andrew Dygan, Technical Service Expert
Sport is my hobby. Exercise not only helps to be healthy and keep yourself in a good shape, but also gives an opportunity to relax after work. 3 times a week I go to the gym, and once a week I play football. Football develops many qualities such as speed, accuracy, reaction, endurance and quick wits. In addition, this is a team game, which teaches solidarity and a team spirit, which is a useful skill in our work.
