In Amsterdam, there is a man with a profound ability to withstand the cold. His name is Wim Hof and they call him “The Iceman.”

“One day I was walking by the park, I really got attracted by the water with a layer of ice on it. It looked like, I don’t know, sometimes you cannot describe it, but you know it’s beautiful. When I got into the water, I really felt a mighty feeling coming over me and after thirty seconds I felt great. I think that’s one of my first moments where my mind got still, no side effects anymore, no thoughts anymore, just feeling.” – Wim Hof
