Subject: Stop sending us boring emails!
I know I have been bitching a lot about money problems lately, and I’m really sorry to have bored you guys with that. Of course this forum is supposed to be about travelling, and not about my personal problems, but my writing inspiration have left me somewhere along the line and I regret sending this last unnecessary message out last night. But please, don’t send me hate messages as this guy from London (who I actually thought was a friend) did this morning, just send an empty e-mail to [deleted] Then you’ll be removed from the mailing list forever. Don’t waste my time, and frankly getting something like this is quite depressing!
! WILL YOU PLEASE STOP CLOGGING UP MY EMAIL WITH YOUR BORING, UNINTERESTING & FRANKLY POINTLESS F**KING EMAILS. OBVIUOSLY YOU THINK YOUR LIFE VERY INTERESTING BUT WE DO NOT, SO STOP IT AS OF NOW OR I’LL CLOG UP YOUR EMAIL WITH A LOAD OF USELESS CRAP. WE DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR JOURNEYS THROUGH LIFE AND NOR DOES ANYONE ELSE PROBABLY SO DEFLATE YOUR EGO & LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE. GET A LIFE MATE & DEVELOP WHAT SMALL PERSONALITY YOU HAVE. YOU WERE DULL ENOUGH TO HAVE AROUND IN THE FIRST PLACE & OVER A YEAR LATER WE ARE STILL GETTING THESE TIRESOME IRRELEVANT W***Y EMAILS. STOP IT & F**K OFF

Subject: No luck in the employment field as of yet
Brothers and sisters!
Past: Edinburgh was magic! But unfortunately I had no luck in finding a job there though. I was at least able to spend three weeks among some incredibly amazing people. When I came I was told it was a good time to be there, because of all the good musicians and acts who where going to be playing there just then, and it certainly was! Every concert or party was better than the previous one. Unbelievable!!! We experienced some magical moments indeed. I miss you guys a lot!
Present: I’m actually back home in Norway these days – in a quite tranquil farmland area called Skedsmokorset about half an hours drive north of Oslo. Staying at my Mom’s house, because I’m now of course totally broke again. Got just about zero dinheiro! Have been working on a few short-term projects the last couple of weeks, so at least I have some fresh dough coming to me very soon.
Future: Next weekend there’s an open-air party in the woods outside of Gothenburg (Sweden), the first one of the summer up here; some DJ friends are playing there too. I trust them to put on a great show as they have been known do, so that should be a good one. Then after that I’m heading to Finland to meet up with a nice girl who I travelled with for a few weeks in India last year. Really looking forward to all of this! It will be almost like being back on the road again. 🙂
Infinitive: Love from me!
PS: One of my great traveller heroes was buried here today; Thor Heyerdahl one of the most famous Norwegians who ever lived. (Rest in Peace.)
