… even tropical ulcers. I had a visit from my cousin ages ago, and we had a brilliant time together. It was magnificent to finally be able to show someone from home what I’m always nagging about… Since then, I have also been able to show my sister Anne Malene and her boyfriend Øyvin, and… Continue reading Patience, Prayer and Penicillin heal all wounds…
We’re open for business!
It’s been waaaay too long since my last update, but we’re now finally up and running. Most of my time in the weeks since I wrote last were spent getting things ready, but it has now all paid off. 🙂 The new deck is beautiful, compressor works, we’ve got the staff we need, and we’re… Continue reading We’re open for business!
Bye bye Bali
Since I finished my diving specialties, I haven’t really been doing much… My days have been spent on the beach, walking around Sanur, surfing the net and watching movies and tv series. I’ve had excellent company in my days of laziness, though. I managed to get in touch with Leonid, a couchsurfer I met in… Continue reading Bye bye Bali
Since Tuesday I’ve mostly just been hanging around relaxing on the beaches, and watching Muai Thai and fireshows in the evenings. I spent some time with Cecilie and Simone and their friend Emilie, until they all went home yesterday. On Tuesday I went looking for a beach where it might be possible to camp out… Continue reading Beach bum
Full Moon Party in Koh Pha Ngan
Friday night I took the night bus from Bangkok to Chumporn, and the boat from there to Koh Pha Ngan. I walked around for a bit, looking for a guest house, but all I could find was way too expensive, so I was preparing to find a place to store my luggage and just sleep… Continue reading Full Moon Party in Koh Pha Ngan

We rode past the remains of a small, old French locomotive, and west out to the Tat Somphamit waterfalls. The part of the Mekong that runs west of… Continue reading Bangkok stopover
Hoi An again
A week ago we arrived in Hoi An for the second time, after a long journey on the bus from Ninh Binh. After checking in at a hotel around half the price of last time we were here, we rented bicycles and headed to the beach. The beach was where we spent the next four… Continue reading Hoi An again
Ca Na – True VietNam
We were supposed to go dune-sledding the day before yesterday, however due to Annikken’s severe sunburn we decided to postpone our dune-sledding adventure one more day. Annikken just relaxed the whole day mostly inside, while Gjerulf spent a few hours on the beach enjoying the sun and waves as well shopping for beachwear and finding… Continue reading Ca Na – True VietNam
Mui Ne – Tropical Paradise
March 24 Yesterday we arrived in Mui Ne. The bus ride was a bit of a surprise, to say the least! We were expecting a normal, cramped bus, hopefully with A/C. What we found, was a sleeper bus, with beds instead of seats, comfortable, well airconditioned, with pillows and blankets for everyone. No doubt the… Continue reading Mui Ne – Tropical Paradise
