Milan

If anything, this is a story* of precaution. It may also be a story about perception of race, if you chose to see it that way, and in that way it may also be a story about representation, values and fortune in misfortune. Young, optimistic and naive, they were a few hours into the journey,…

Chasing Dares

Sorry for the long absence folks, alas, better a year later than never as they say (I doubt anyone would actually say that tbh). I hope you will excuse my silence knowing it has been due to (more) personal tragedies happening in my life, plummeting me into a tunnel of depression & anxiety, until there…

Cusco and Marqueses Boutique Hotel

If you only have time to go to one town in Peru, then Cusco would be your best shout. I absolutely loved it here. The touristy city centre is full of life, clean, tidy and safe. You see the poorer areas where the locals live like a favela frame around the city centre. Although I…

Survivor of the Inca Trek 2015

The long-awaited report; it’s actually taken me so long to get this done simply because I wanted it to be really good for you guys (and because I haven’t been well). First: Some facts you need to know – If you’re planning to do any trek to the Machu Picchu you need to book early…

However, I’m surrounded by Norwegian “koselig” Christmas decorations and in company of my cat – life is good! Starting a new travel fashion trend…

A Visit to the Fountain of Life

Like mentioned I got to go with the mobile unit today and here’s my report as promised. My thank you’s to Sarah Hansen for providing me with the information below. The Fountain of life has two purposes. One is to be a day centre for street children who either live on the street or the…

Old Places and New Pals

This weekend we visited two of my favourite places that are a must-see in Pattaya. The Million Years Stone Park This crocodile farm, as it’s also known as, was one of the “zoo’s” my dad took me to when I visited Thailand for the first time. I sat next to a Tiger then and I…
