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…

Back in homeland. 

Hamburg, stop three and the last on my 3 great cities in 24h tour. Walking into the airport building I pass by a prominent sing ” Bundesrepublik Deutschland”. I kept walking passed by but turned around. I’ve been in and out of the country in the last three year so uncountable times but never really…

Chillout Zone Airport Stockholm

The stop over in Oslo was quick, the airport quieter than the last time and my civilization shock didn’t happen this time. I remember me sitting in Oslo hiding behind my back pack and wondering how to manage the 5m that were between me and the gate but full of people who wouldn’t stand still….

Sleeping beauty – a boat full. 

It 4am. The first alarm goes off.  Mine is set for quarter past. I thought that is a safe one. Like where ever I am by that time in town I’d make it to the boat, get my bags and run off to the Bus station. Well maybe I’d have a bit of a sprint…

Good morning Ålesund

Good morning sunshine. We are back in Ålesund, the place that sparked my fire for Norway in June. I’ve seen different sites of the country since then, been to the ever grey Tromsø with its colorful arctic flowers, been to glaciers, on land strips with no trees at all, in areas with more polar bears…

Last note on the bucket situation. 

I went to bed pretty mutch after my shift. People got more and more quiet during the day and food got refused. No one really no one wanted to be the first one to break the ice… Me neither, but anyhow is wouldn’t have counted as we girls have to squat over it to pee…

Wind is good for Ålesund

Which has its down side as well, 24hours longer with no toilet. The bucket topic is on a different level. As it were till now just girls using to pee, the guys are now discussing, who will be the first doing a big business on the bucket. Someone needs to break the ice…  Beside this……
