it’s going down

Jeg reiser faen meg til Kina i neste uke, og jeg må bare si (for sikkert hundrede gang den siste uken): JEG GLEDER MEG SÅNN! Fikk visumet i posten for et par dager siden, så nå er alt i boks! Om jeg har internett skal jeg oppdatere her, ettersom sosiale medier som Facebook og Instagram mest sannsynlig er blokkert, så kan jeg hvert fall forsikre alle der hjemme om min eksistens!

snapshots from China (including the one when I’m in the back of a taxi wondering where I’d end up…communication may be hard when none speak the same language). I had such an adventurous time though!

it’s been a truly incredible journey and I can’t but be thoroughly thankful for everything I’ve seen and learned, and not least greatful to have met all of the amazing people I’ve come to know. I was a mixture of both scared and excited when boaring the plane from Bodø less than two weeks ago (some thought I was being crazy). it was my first time travelling all alone, but now it’s an experience I wouldn’t like being without. this trip was actually the only thing I wanted to do after finishing school and I’m so glad I followed my dream (and not someone elses). I’ll definitely be planning another trip somewhere next year because there’s so much beauty and good in this world, and I’d really like to be seeing/inahling/experiencing/documenting it all.

ps! it’s like 90 photos or something so it might take some time to load

DAY EIGHT

405 406

woke up in this bed and started editing my pictures right away. my trip has come to an end, and I’ll be drinking milk, eating a slice of bread with brown cheese and studying at uni again before you know it. it’s been an incredible journey and I can’t but feel throughly greatful for such an expereince! the photo diary will be HUGE so I hope you’ll be looking as much forward to see it as I’m wanting to share it.

DAY SEVEN

402 403

visited the First Beacon Tower of Ming Dynasty and climbed parts of the Wall, but though some parts were quite steep (and I conveniently had decided to wear heels) it was still so so marvelous.

DAY SIX

399 400

wandering right into this landscape felt unreal because it was just THAT beautiful.

DAY FIVE

396 397

more hiking..and treasure hunting!!!!!! I’m still wayyyyy behind on these day-by-day posts of China as I did have some trouble with the Internet connection over there but I’ll just post the rest of the days later today and tomorrow because now I’m officially back in Norway again. it feels good to be back though I miss it already.

DAY FOUR

389 390 391

hiking in the midst of this landscape was kind of surreal but still real. the fourth day was definitely memorable.

DAY THREE

387

posting this a bit late because I’m really that dependent on Internet connection which seems to have been rather nonexistent lately..but I spent most of my third day in China on an airplane, sleeping of course, on the way to Jiayuguan, located in the Gansu province. I visited the Jiayuguan Fortress, the first pass at the west end of the Great Wall. it was quite incredible.

ps! instagram, snapchat, facebook and even google (just to mention a few) are being blocked here in China, sooooo….that’s the reason why I’m avoiding people. it’s not on purpose. I think.
