Hockey almost over for the season..

10 games, 6goals, 5assist, 3penalty minutes and finish up as the top goalscorer and the top player with most points for the Spring league in our team. As you guys perhaps already know, I played for The Islanders and I had a blast getting to know the guys, and hopefully I’ll find a spot for the fall! As a team, we didn’t do too well.. 2 wins, 9 losses which made us the worst team in the series…  🙂 Read the rest of this entry »

Things I Learnt That Changed My Life…

Life is a choice, not a chance.

There are no timeouts, no substitutions and the clock is always running.
It’s not a scrimage or a practice. There’s no instant replay.
Each and everyday is the Super Bowl, the Tour the France and the Grand Final of you life! Read the rest of this entry »

Sunshine Boys – Lucky Reflections

Monday night me and a friend went to Charles Dickens to grab a couple of beers after work and chat about stuff, just catching up and a nice “after-work” kind of deal.

We both realized that we both have led a pretty adventurous, successful and lucky lives.

I am not writing this to brag, in fact my website (, my picasa site ( and my newest addition the youtube page ( are neither for bragging, it’s some kind of therapy, a diary of my life, a blog, a ‘puke-bag’, if you wish Read the rest of this entry »

Banff – The day that changed EVERYTHING!

070220 – 0500 – The alarm goes off, I had barely any sleep. The reason for that was that today I knew would be a very special day! Me and Anders were going to be picked up in one hour and fifteen minutes with a bus taking us back to Panorama and RK Heliplex. It was time to take the virginity of flying a helicopter and also do some heli-skiing!!

The white mini-bus in form of a Chevy picked us up just outside the front desk at Hidden Ridge. First we stopped at a few hotels in Banff to pick up a few more people before we were on our way. Read the rest of this entry »

Norway 1996

Our final year in High school and the seniors were going to Norway. We went up to place called Krossbu in Jutenheimen, which is Norway’s’ highest mountain ridge. Because I am writing this in 2001 I can only apologise that my memory have not stored all information as a computer would have done.

However, I have some pictures I love to share with you and I can talk a bit about them. Hope you feel the just enormous atmosphere you only feel when up in the mountains.

You and Nature, kind of way!


I am for sure going up again one day, even if it’s not for a couple of years.

Want to join me?

I’ll never forget what our teacher told us when we just jumped into the bus at the end of the week, he said; “You cannot tell other people when you come home that you have been out in the Norwegian mountains, because such wonderful weather does not exist in the mountains, and therefore haven’t experienced the ‘real’ mountains”.
