On Easter Sunday the AfterSki topic is: "Ut på tur aldri sur" (when touring, never moody).
Before I take you on a journey to some of my touring activities since I saved my life through organ transplantation after terminal heart and kidney failure, I will from a bar chair in Singapore wish you all a HAPPY EASTER.
We have used lot of time to experience the pleasure of visiting interesting places around the world ( See the movie The bucket List if you do not understand what I mean).
but since it is snow and skiing most of you combine with Easter, I start with a photo of my wife taken at Bjorli.This photo is also from the same area where old friends from Ålesund use the beauty in autumn colors to walk the mountain.
One of our touring activities went to the fantastic Sandbu Mansion where we had the honor to meet with the owner, the late Kjell Holm.
Arne, Anton, Kjell, Liv, Harald, Solveig, Erik, Grethe, Vigdis, Per, Kirsti, Arve and Tullen
In Hemsedal where people today are starting to plan the return from cottages and ski resorts, this photo is taken after I reached the peak of Skogshorn 1728m (5669ft). The first major mountain climbing challenge with new organs. See the path in the hillside behind me.After reaching the Høgevarde peak (1459m) whatever windy and cold weather we experienced, you see the true happiness in Tullen´s face. No moody expression here.
However travelling with smiles have brought us to Paris and Musee d´Orsayto Sevilla and Plaza de Espana
to the island of Ischia, Italy where another adventurer, Peer Gynt, may have "stayed". The Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen lived on the island for a short period, and is said to have finished Peer Gynt there in 1867.
to Skagen and Grenen the tip of Jutland, the northmost point of Denmark. Grenen was given its name for its shape like a tree-branch (Danish: gren). I could have continued with many photos from Asia, Europe and my own country (like this from Dalsnibba (1476m) above Geiranger), but I end this touring with smiles journey with Tullen (in front of the turning point) and myself at our daily walk at the Paseo Maritim, Fuengirola. New photos from this area will be posted later this year.
