A Different Kind of Mission
Iwona does things her own way and sees the world her own way, too. There’s a magical quality to her storytelling that makes each mission much more than a trip. It’s a gripping tale of adventure and transformation that would feel at home being told with a sparkle in her eye over a crackling campfire.
“I am preparing a series of stories from my trips to Musandam (Oman). Musandam is like Narnia. Once you cross the border, it feels like you are entering some magical land in a different dimension. Recently, they finished a dirt road that goes on and on for hours through high mountains and brings you down to a small fishermen's village by the coast called ‘Limah.’ Previously, this area was accessible only by boat or helicopter. I think I was the first foreign person to reach it by car.”
A rare find in its region and in the sport of off-roading at large, Missions Offroad is not your average off-roading guide company. And true to Iwona’s unique personality, it carries a unique purpose at its core: a different kind of mission.
“The purpose of many off-roading group trips is to have fun and get some adrenaline. I want a bit more than that. Off-roading and overlanding are fun, no doubt, but I am more interested in the element of wanderlust. Of journeying for your soul, filling your heart with anticipation, and setting off into the unknown.”
“I never wanted my blog to be just an off-road guide. This project has taken me on an epic journey towards believing in myself. One which I hope inspires others, too. A trip off-road can change you – it’s something that off-road guides don’t talk about enough! My mission, and what I’m building for, is to discover places where my heart feels free and to empower people, especially women, to get out of their comfort zone and do the same. It’s how I feel alive.”
