It’s a fucking war man, people die!

För snart sagt tio är sedan, efter att ha tagit studenten och intjänat mina första månadslöner genom att arbeta på hemtjänsten styrde jag och min dåvarande flickvän F kosan mot det lilla landet I väst, Irland. Med drygt tio tusen kronor på fickan kände jag mig rik till oändlighet, och aderton år fyllda vuxnare än [...]

A different kind of journey

I started blogging as some kind of journal to my nearest and dearest, for them to be able to know what I was doing when around and about in the big world. Never really thought much about it, but I quickly realized that I enjoyed it. Anyone who knows me also knows that I take [...]

Happy Easter! A week of reflections.

So, I’m back in ze fatherland(or motherland, more like it). After 10 hours on two different flights (on one where the pilot said the somewhat unexpected words ”The turbulence is now over and we are hitting clearer skies. If you look out to you right hand side you can see the mountains of Afghanistan.” I [...]

And so, the end is near…

Phew, the last few weeks that I spent here has been really exhausting, but  lots of fun. As I told you guys last time I came back from Everest in one piece. Thinking that this would grant med the luxury of maybe resting for a few days turned out to be hoping for a bit [...]

So, bits and pieces of Everest…

Howdy! Back again in the buzzling area of Thamel in Crapmandhu. Actually feels really good. Staying in the same place as last time, feels pretty OK. Something that felt f*****g awesome though was having the first shower in 14 days. Man, used about half a bottle of shower cream. It was bad, they almost had [...]

In Namche, heading up.

I am in the Sherpa Capital of Namche Bazaar, the main port to this part of the Himalayas. Two fairly easy days of trekking got me here, and since I’ve spent one day to acclimatise I will head of to continue towards Base Camp tomorrow. All is well so far, will probably be back in [...]

Off to Everest!

Just a really short post this time. It’s about 22.00 o’clock and I’m leaving for the airport tomorrow at about 06.00. From there I will fly to Lukla, a small airstrip in the mountains to start a 14 day trekk, which will hopefully lead me to Mount Everest Base Camp at 5360 metres above the [...]

I’m in Nepal, what the fuck can I say?

Awesome. Arrived at Kathmandu airport two days ago at Monday afternoon after leaving my guest-house in Bangkok at 0400 hours in the morning. Went to the weekend market in Bangkok on Sunday, and I must say it was really really good. I thought it was going to be a bunch of crap just as it [...]

Back in Hell.

So, came back to Bangkok yesterday. Apparently there is some kind of holiday because there’s pretty hard to get at room and the traffic is absolutely packed (riding around on the back of the motorcycle taxi again gave me a pretty good look on this first hand). Slept for way to long, but since I [...]

Some reflections on the Thai.

Ok, so spending the last few weeks in Thailand I have come across the occasional Thai och two, coloring the otherwise pretty white skin tone of the people walking the same streets as I do. My stay in Bangkok was based around the Koh San Road where the only thai people are merchants trying to [...]
