I embarked on another Viking Voyage and spent three weeks with the tidal fragrance of the reefs in my nose, the call of the seabirds in my ears and the unique light of the high latitudes in my eyes. A few snapshots of this journey have been added to The Viking Voyage gallery.
No risk of anyone talking before the first coffee takes hold. Always the risk of a cold rain setting in just when the campfire is finally doing its thing. Dramatic mountain slopes rising from cold salt water. Remote waves shared with friendly sea- and land-dwelling mammals. Solar winds in the arctic night. The golden light…
Land of huge temples, giant palaces and even bigger skyscrapers. Land of endless cities. Land of intriguingly organic gardening, using the splendid foliage like colors on a canvas. Land of fantastic food. Land of consumerist tech junkies with manners and style. Land of ridiculously fast trains departing on time to the second. Land of the…
Lush green mountains and the deep blue of the ocean. Cold nights and hot springs. Big waves and flat spells. One day and four seasons.

The vast sky fades from the darkest to the lightest shades of blue, speckled by some puffy white clouds. The pale green of grass and the lush green of some scattered shrubs contrast with the entire spectrum of orange and red. Yellow and purple rock faces merge into brown slopes. Salt licks glisten in the…
Obscure backyard bars. Rusty freight containers cut open, furnished with bulky waste, a state-of-the-art coffee maker and a display full of organic cakes. Amazing graffiti, sculptures, and street art everywhere. Victorian architecture and weird stuff. Melbourne is the cultural hub of Australia.
