Traveling the World

An unquenchable thirst for adventure!

Powderdreams – Verbier 2016

Powderdreams in Verbier At the beginning of March 2016, Margrethe and I headed to Verbier in Switzerland to do a bit of skiing. We were hoping for good conditions, but were a bit worried about the rumors of little snow. We lucked out as the video at the end of this...

Sailing Norway’s West Coast

A lot of people have asked me if I've gone sailing Norway's West Coast and to my great shame, I haven't sailed here nearly as much as I would have liked, but during the summer of 2015, I put that shame to rest. I've sorted through my pictures and put them together...

An EPIC midlife crisis

As most of you know, I’m turning the big 4-0 next year. I’ve heard rumors of people doing crazy shit when they turn 40, only to blame it on a fabled “midlife crisis” (it sounds better in Norwegian: 40-års krisen). I feel it’s only right that I take advantage of the...

Sailing Lysefjorden and Climbing Flørli

With a promising forecast Margrethe and I cast off from Sokn, to sail into Lysefjorden to enjoy the sights and to climb the 4444 steps at Flørli. When I say “promising forecast”, I mean that they weren’t forecasting gales or blizzards, which is apparently as good as...

Circumnavigating Denmark

I rounded up a great crew for my first sailing trip with Baluba: Helge came along with me from Stavanger, Martin flew in from Tromsø, Kjersti was on her way home from Spain and Kristian joined us straight from his annual canoe trip, before flying to Ibiza. Our goal...

I’ve bought an Ovni 435

In March I made a video summing up the sailing trip from Stavanger to Sydney. It proved too much to handle for a poor sailor. I couldn't take not owning a boat, so I went into high gear, analyzing boats, talking to boat owners, looking at potential itineraries,...

Freediving Vigdel

Videl is one of my favourite spots to go freediving in Stavanger. The advantage of freediving at Vigdel is that it's close to town and easily accessible. It was our first proper trip this year, because we'd been plagued by bad weather earlier, but the end of April is...

A new sailing circumnavigation

https://vimeo.com/122750544 I needed something motivational, while I save up for the next trip, so I threw this video together. I write that a new sailing circumnavigation is in the planning stage, because I've been halfway around the World in the past year with the...

An Arctic Adventure at Finse

It was time for new adventures at Finse, exactly 5 months after our last trip there. This time my dad (Bjørn Erik), brother (Martin) and I were joined by Peter and Maren for what was going to be a weekend in Amundsen's tracks. I arrived at Finse on Friday evening,...

A look back at 2013

This has been a quite a year ranging from highs: Getting my deck officer license, getting a great new job, traveling to a bunch of fun places, to lows: Splitting up with Kjersti, not being able to sell either the house or the apartment, as well as having to move into...

Seeing the sights in Korea

It’s not every day you get to fly halfway around the globe while someone else foots the bill. I had to go to Korea to join my new ship, but I asked my company to fly me out a week early, so that I could have a little vacation first. If you’re pressed for time scroll...

Fabulous Finse in the Fall

Finse is located 1222 meters above sea level and is only reachable by the railway line going between Oslo and Bergen. Due to the climate and weather, Finse is defined as the southernmost Arctic climate in the World and is a miniature Antarctica. My brother was...

Cruising the Boknafjord

All good things come to an end and my time on MF Stavangerfjord has just ended. I got to spend 14 months there, together with the great team onboard. If you had asked me when I went to school if I was interested in working on a ferry, I would have told you to "#%&§...

Freediving around Stavanger

I have enjoyed a few epic freediving trips around Stavanger this summer together with a mix of my brother Martin, Jacob, Erling and Helge. Though we've never managed to all be on the same trip, we've had some memorable dives together. The trip Jacob and I had to...

The French Riviera

A long weekend in May on the French Riviera is something everyone should have on their "to-do list", especially when it involves eating good seafood, drinking great wine and looking at sailboats. What more could you possibly ask for? [meteor_slideshow...
