Personally, the idea wouldn’t leave me alone. I started hunting through second hand websites for old grindshoes. I imagined an ordinary walk transforming into this epic journey where I could jump on anything and grind as if I were in a videogame.

Matthias stood up and left the room without a word. Moments later he returned with a pair he had stored away many years before and said, “YES! I’ve been saving these for a while, waiting for the right time to do it myself– so let’s do it!”
