Entry 500

This is my 500th blog post on this site.

What started as a coding exercise in 1994 turned out to evolve into something different. After starting to write regularly in the early 2000s, it just kept on rolling. All of a sudden, I seem to have written 500 of them.

Many of my traveling stories are quite short, since they were often written in a hurry at a dodgy internet café with poor internet connection. For the full stories, check out my book Här finns inga drakar that was released last year.

Reine at Sydney airport Gathering inspiration from Bruce Chatwin at Sydney airport, long time ago.

As I wrote a few months ago, written text is definitely on the decline. But do not despair, dear millennials! Apart from entries, there are over 3000 photos available in the archive as well as in the entries.

Thank you for reading!

The lakes of Lombardy

"The town of Como, largest settlement around Lake Como, attracts a lot of people with big wallets. But I preferred to take the funicular up the mountain to the Brunate region, where you get a much better view of the lake."
