HAKUBA

First day of snowboarding was sunny and nice. Snow was still good, and we had some good runs.

Bianca and me

Shared a room with Bianca the first days. We know each other from Bergen and some of the other guys joining the trip.

SNOWBOARDING IN NAGANO

My first days in Tokyo was just about relaxing and eating some well missed good japanese food at my all favorite vegan joint at Tokyo Station. T’s Tan Tan Ramen.

Then I met up with the rest of the crew to take the Shinkansen to Nagano.

After about 4 hours of travelling, we finally arrived at Kodama Lodge in Hakuba, Nagano.

HONG KONG part III

When in Hong Kong… try these waffles. You get them on every street corner.

This city is amazing. Exactly what I expected after hearing all the stories from my grandmother and my dad. He was born there and I always wanted to visit.

The city by night.

Thank you. I will be back next year🇭🇰

HONG KONG part III

There is one thing I like more than most things. Disney movies. And yes, we went to Disneyland.

I was probably more excited than any of the kids there.

And.. it was Halloween themed, so I was pretty happy with my day.

Can’t get enough of pumpkins…

We also took some rides, but the heat was unbearable at some points.

The highlight was the fireworks. Since we didn’t get a good view the day before in the city.. we were pretty excited for this one.

Magical…

Disneyland by night is a whole different world…

And again: beer and dim sum.

Definitely going back.

WHY?

What is happening to the world. We are destroying our planet FAST by eating, killing, pollute, consume, and drown the ocean in plastic and toxics. 

 We are cutting down our forests, the healthy lungs of the planet to make space for more humans and fabrics. 

And now this;

 I woke up this morning with over fifty new text messages from friends in America that asked if they could come to Norway and live with me. 

The fact that one of the most ignorant and most dangerous men on earth just became the new president of the most powerful nation on the planet sickens me. When did the movie “Idiocracy” turn from a comedy to a documentary? When did we become so ignorant that we just gave up? 

I can’t blame all americans. But I will blame your schools, your education system, your health system, your politicians. I blame your leaders, your teachers and your lack of knowledge of anything that has nothing to do with your own personal interest. I have lived there. I have seen it with my own eyes; the racism, the huge gap between rich and poor, the school education that does not teach you anything else then “If you are not the best, you are not good enough”. I have seen people sew each other for no reasons at all. I have seen people argue with a gun in their hand.

Why is it so important for the world to idolize celebrities? What happened to follow and listen to people with education, informative speeches and facts? 

– I can understand why it happened. But I don’t understand HOW it could happen.
The only positive thing about this election is that I’ve seen so many young and smart people waking up. Not only in America, but all over the world. Young people getting into politics. Finding facts and educate themselves. I have seen them stand up for their own opinions and rights. And hopefully the next years will be the beginning of a new movement in the world.

I hope this is a wake up call, because it’s about to get very ugly. 

 The world is getting smaller, but the gap between educated and not educated is becoming bigger.
Ignorance is not bliss. It’s time to wake up. 

Let’s make a chance. 
FUCK TRUMP.
