Off to Norway’s Countryside… the Bergenbahnen. 

I’ve seen a decent part of Norway coastline so far but missed out on the countryside… when I was still on FAIRWINDS there was a time we planned on sailing down to Bergen before crossing over back to Ireland. Bergen would have been my last Stopp and Espen recommend the Bergenbahnen to me as an…

Bergen – a Hanse City

Bergen is ment to be the Hamburg of Norway. Rainy, -248 days of rain bring down 2548mm of water every year. – gray in gray and windy. I brought a rain jacket, just in case… The spray rain from yesterday is long dryed and forgotten. The sun colors up the street and I can identify…

A Saturday night…

Well yes, I traveled all the way to Bergen to spend the night behind my own computer? This is what it looks like. When I thought the idea trough of me being self employed and do it MY WAY I thought of freedom, a balance between life and work -meaning life and little work. I…

Up in the air and feets back on Norwegian ground. 

Uhh.. this is a long one.  Flying over the lakes and mountains of Scandinavia gave me a special feeling. The world is beautiful and there is so much to see. I can’t wait to explore more of this north land that i ignored for so long. How ignorant i was, how beautiful it is… I’ve…

Sometimes the shadow makes the picture. 

It is one of this early morning I’m used to, still love them. Being out there while the world is still a sleep.  I’ve walked this street uncountable times, passing by my old school. It’s been along time.  I don’t know if this is good bye or is it settled that i am coming back….

A shortcut with a lesson. 

Ulla and I meet in the evening. It gives us both time to use the day productive which wouldn’t happen if we meet earlier and agree to meet just briefly and see each other later. We tried it in the past, too much to talk.  So I wash clothing and sort stuff. I haven’t touched…

Have I lost my mind?

This is the first morning that I remember, that I hadn’t rush to catch the train south. Interesting feeling. I even have time for a strole in Ottensen, the suburb Anne and I used to lived in for years before she moved to st. Pauli and me around the world. Would I search for a…

First night on land was awe full. 

I woke up several times during the short night, in my dreams the voices from the parting people turned into conversations on board… And when I woke up I wasn’t orientated in time or place at all.  Sewing machine, did we rip a sail, do I have to repair it… It took a time till…

This is how “coming home” feels. 

I spend the night at Anne’s. She would say at my place… She’s not at home, my appearance was too spontaneous this time. Right, not even 12h… The door isn’t  key looked, so I assume the roomies are already asleep. It’s late… Way past midnight… I find fresh cloth on the bed and a lovely…

When the fortune cookie says it all…

Sina has finished her shift and we go and grap some food or a drink around the corner… We have heaps to catch up on… and to plan. We will travel up to Norway and Sweden, just soon. We’ve been around Tasmania together, it was memorable. And this one… It will be too.  I got…
