Hello partypeople! Just writing this short message to let you know that the ticket has been booked, the shots have been taken, and I’m getting my visa tomorrow. Things are really starting to take shape now! The internet booking of the flight to Mumbai, somehow didn’t make it through to travelemotions.com, so I had to book it by phone instead. And since the prices changes every day, the ticket I now got was 150 NLG more expensive than the one I first tried to book. Now I’m flying with Kuwait Air through Kuwait instead. Also today: I updated my website again, and uploaded a bunch of Quicktime slideshows to the TommyOnTrip page. So if you’d like to see pictures from my earlier travels this year (Chamonix, Amsterdam, Portugal), please check it out! Some of the .mov files are quite big, so using a broadband internet is wisest, but dialup works too if you have the time to wait for the extra long downloads. The portfolio section is also uploaded again, if you’d like to see some of my work.

Yesterday and today I spent the whole afternoon around town looking for my ticket to the east, but the prices here in Oslo are so incredibly steep. Luckily today I found a website in the Netherlands which had some really good bargains flying out of Schiphol, so I went for a Royal Jordanian flight to Mumbai through Amman on the 10th of January, costing only 1000 NLG including taxes. So then India will be the first country I’m going to outside of Europe and the US! I also spent my bonus points for a free ticket to A’dam on the 5th, that leaves me only 30 days to get all my shots and visas done for India and China… and inbetween all that, buying x-mas gifts, getting stuffed on x-mas eve, and celebrating the new year… phew!!! But India is going to be GREAT!

Hello gang! With the latest addition of Karlsen (is that you Thomas old pal??), the number of members evesdropping on this list has reached a quite respectable 30! Current situation: This week I’m taking the various shots needed for going to the Malaria and Hepatitis infected Asian countries, and I need to get my ass down to the various embassies to get a couple of visas as well. Stupid rules… Last weekend was kind of a dry run of the big trip, as I went with the hardkernel of the Oslo psytrance scene down to Copenhagen to catch the fantastic live event of Koxbox, Huxflux et. al at the VEGA theatre. I also got to try out long bus rides again!

Next destination: Unknown
Now playing: Kruder & Dorfmeister, The K&D Sessions
