Krakow

By | Life, Photos | No Comments


So we had a School trip to Krakow in the beginning of april… it was quite fun. So in conclusion 2x16h bus rides, fancy main square/center, old and ragged streets when you took a walk further from the centre. lots of snoring in the hostel, lots of drinking (open bar was brutal!) paint ball (kamikaze style ftw!), enjoying te sun and good company… and best kebabs ever! ^^

loads of photos coming up if you click more

Odder Højskole

By | Life, Photos | No Comments

It is time to return to Denmark! I signed up for a semester in a danish “hojskole” wiki link in order to kill half a year and to get some practice with my hobbies and such (its a perfect place for that!). For the subjects i chose photography (with film!) drawing, model dawing, creativity and form, painting/history, yoga, choir and beginners music. So far, most of the first week has been filled with introduction activities and a few classes but it sure has gone beyond all my expectations, its really great in here- good atmosphere, nice people, great teachers, lots of motivation and a cozy social setting. Quite happy for coming here!

theres loads of photos from the first week if you hit “more”

finally got this out of my neck… a little project started way back in 2006… hindered by years in denmark and such- figured i might as well finish it.

Here’s a little birthday present for myself.

Im glad i did, havent taken it off the camera yet- its just awesome!

Estonian Aviation Museum

So a while ago i took a a long desired trip to the “museum” to get some inspiration.
The place is called “Estonian aviation museum” . The display isnt that huge but considering our population of 1,3million and that this was started as a private project its rather nice- good enough to kill atleast an hour.
