well, well now my trip is going towards an end

well, well   now my trip is going towards an end,  and I have to first say I'm sorry for not feeding you all with any stories for a while, as I just have had little time for writing, especially with high internetcosts in Japan and S.Korea.
 
I am really glad I got the chance, and took this oppurtunity to travel this time, ever 4 months are a long time... and a bit longer than the 2+ months that was the original plan.
 
I got around to see MANY exciting places, and even more importaint, - meeting a lot of nice and interesting persons along the way...  some for just a short minute, and other for weeks to an end... you were all a big part of my journet, and I'm happy for meeting you all....
 
my site: 
is a bit short of information lately,  but I will use time in the months comming to go through my around 7000 ? photoes and post more and more photoes, videos, and travelstories weekly (and maybe many smallewr shortstories several times a week)..
 
I will also try to make some rankings over some topics...  i.e  where did I like the food the best,?  1-5 best..  where was the accomondation cheapest...  the best beds... and so on,  
 
Please feel free to come with suggestions for things you like to read stories of,  see photoes of,  and ranking of,  and any other things you like to see on my site...
 
So I'm getting ready to get home... already gotten an offer I accepted for a job, so I start in a week, unless I have to get in the military training one week first,.. in that case its 2 weeks till I start working...
 
but still I have some days left here in China, for enjoying life, shop, travel the last bit to beijing (12 hour train is a piece of cake now), and really concider how to pack my luggage for the plaine...
 
Thanks all for beeing who you are...
 
hugs to all

Happy New Year !!!

Happy new year :) and may the new year bring you all the happyness you possebly can handle.... ;)

Im currently in Japan, and getting closer to the end of my trip.... whitch I, btw, some hours ago got extended for almost anouther month, so my trip will not be 99 days, but 123...

Also Im preparing a little bit for my life back in Norway already, using the tired first day of 2007 to start applying for jobs back home.. and today I had a arranged phonecall to my hostel from an agency, and set up a meeting for the day after I have my first day home again...

Newyears is always a day for thinking about ones life, reflecting back, and planning ahead... and putting out hopes for the future....

This time Im not back home as I usual has been, som newyear is definitly different, - but still I will do as Ive done the last 3 years... Im going to put up 10 improvmentissue for me self for the year to come, and I will try my best to improve as a person, and to improve the quality of my life, and people I love... I will not manage to get improvements on all 10 issues, - but I will be happy as long as I can make 1, 2 or maybe even 3 improvements in my life.... so.. 10 issues to work on, instead on one newyearsresolution...

Normally I have my 10 issues ready on newyerars Eve, but this time I might wait till I get home... And what my 10 issues are, well, Im not telling any.... :)

In addition, this time I will also put up for me self 10 goals for the end of 2007, who may be related to my issues, and maybe not...

Last year one of my goals for 2006 was to finally get my nerve/act together, and take the chance and forfill my dream of travelling for a longer period... so I think I can declaire that goal for accompliced.. :)

I have still not put up all my 10 goals eigther, but here is a couple of examples*
- Travel some more, - at least 2 weeks abroad, - prefeerably to Cuba
- Get a good job I enjoy
- Start learning a new language
- Use in average at least 1 hour on webbuilding/writing a day in 2007
(any have suggestions on what they would like to read of?)

I dont expect to make all my 10 goals (then I put them up) but hopefully I can make 4-6...

Reason to write them down on paper, is to easier put my attention to them, and hopefulle they will be easier to focus on, and to accomplish.. Only time will tell...

Well, I just wanted to greet you will all the best for the future, and may luck follow you and your family...

Happy New Year !

Merry Christmas ( God jul ! ) to everyone ! ! ! ! !

Merry Christmas (God jul!) to everyone!!!!!


I just want to use the oppurtunity to wish you and your family a very merry Xmas from me, currently in Taipei - Taiwan.
 
I've been quite tired the last weeks, but feel better/more energy now... :)  but I've been travelling t fast to get time to sit down and write my travelstories in the last weeks,  so after Thailand I've visited Myanmar (Burma), Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Macao, Hong Kong(left HK today), and now I stay in Taiwan for about a (short) week...
 
my plan is so far to go to Tokio at the 30th dec (for a week), and then go S-Korea....  the last week/10days in january I plan to stay in China before I go home to Stavanger (and an army winter-excersice in the Norwegian HomeGuard..)
 
I will probably not get time to the same lenght of stories on these countries while I'm stll on my travel, but I will write more about mytravel then I get home as well,...  also,  if there is any request on other ti\opics you would like to read of (or get me to write) - you can give my suggestions and ideas...  ( i.e: comparing accomadations, comparing food, how I feel travelling alone, where was ppl most friendly, how I do/feel this or that,   anything,  just ask... and I will decide if I like the idea....)
 
any way,  I wish you all the best for the xmas and new year... and take care :)

soon running out of time......

soon running out of time......

As I write this its just 86 short hours left before my plane takes off from Stavanger, and I really wish I had more time for preparing for the trip. 86 hours,... 3 days,..... 3 working days..... 4 nights.... lots of washing/deciding/packing/checking..... trying to meet some friends to say bye.... collecting email/adresses.... fixing things at home...... buying and testing things for my travel... and so on... after all, its a bit more than a weekendstop at a nice hotel somewhere close.

I feel I have had very little time to read/look forward to the trip last month due to work and illness,
- so basicly I feel I have almost NO idea whats awaiting me then I find meself alone in Asia :-) I had plans to read about all countries ahead of the trip, so I could go directly to the places I found interesting, and also then be able to plan the transportation from place to place.

I least I finally decided on a modern backpack,... so far I've only used my old HomeGuard-backpack of the 50'ies. So... finally the importaint item for a backpacker... a BACKPACK.. :-)

2006-09-test4 018(2) 2006-09-test4 020(2)

So now the plan is to read about Beijing and North Corea on the plaine to Beijing, read about China in North-Corea, read about Vietnam in China, and so on :-) more or less to read ahead country by country... and/or take a couple of sunny "study-days" for the last part of the trip,. while Im having some relaxing days somewhere plessent.... Looks like I'm going make my way as I go.

Else..., - I didnt get the job I wanted, so now I will have no permanent job waiting for me at home, - so I will might have a chance to change my returndate... but so far, I will stick to my plan - more or less- in the start... and then we'll see what happens.

I will probably not really understand that I'm going to be travelling for so long, and so far away from home before I've been there for a while, ... and to start the journey in a country like North-Corea is really kind of unreal...

But,--- I feel I have not yet startet to look forward to the journey, - and my expextations are therefore none... then it can only be a good trip, cant it?

85,5 hours left till the plaine leaves Stavanger.... but who's counting...... ;-)
