Sightseer

Ever so often, when we are on our way home, I bite my tongue not to say “Let’s go back to the hotel”.

Grown up in various barracks and hotel rooms scattered around the world, speaking four or five languages as a child, my home was where my bag was, and now I feel most at ease in a sidewalk café.

I observe and interact, but it’s never really any of my business, since I’m a nomade, a tourist, a sightseer.

As you might imagine modern technology came to me like a gift from the Aesir. With a laptop and a mobile I can work anywhere I want.

My father was a world-renowned engineer, and large parts of my childhood has been on the move with my parents. They too suffered from wanderlust, and they too were history geeks

So where is my home? Well, that’s in Greenland. Definitely! And Spain. And Thailand! Sometimes Greece. Sweden, where I live right now. And I am born in Denmark, so… Yeah… These places, and a few more.

I’m not a crazy adventurer, climbing mountains and paddling through the Amazonas. Just a tourist, you know… A sightseer.

I take pictures with my mobile. Not very good pictures, but it helps me see, and keep an eye out for beauty and oddities.

I write postcards. Sometimes short – or rather lengthy – observations and thoughts on Instagram. Sometimes whole books on subjects like history and life in general.

Life is too precious to take too serious, so my books and posts are often tongue in cheek and attempting to be funny.

The logo I made for this site is obviously a compass, and ‘carved into’ the compass you’ll see the Vegvisir (the guide), an Icelandic symbol with hints to the Viking era. Technically speaking the Viking Age was old news when this symbol was made, but as a person with Viking ancestry I will argue that the Viking Age is not really over. I will do that in such length that I have published a book named “Vikingology”.
