...you know what’s the beauty of traveling alone? You can do whatever you want, whenever you want. I know, I know. It sounds kinda selfish... and to be honest: It sort of is. However: when traveling, it shouldn’t be seen as a bad thing.
I wanted to go to Ålesund a year ago. It did’t work out. I wanted to go there this year but I scratched it ‘cos I wanted to see other places.
Well, yesterday, I was recommended this city by so many people I decided to go here afterall. I don’t regret anything. Such a beautiful and cozy city. I had a great talk with a guy in local pub, I met nice people during the ride here (after 40 minutes of hitchhiking 🤭) and enjoyed a view over the whole city from a hill.
I wish everybody could experiece what is it like to travel alone. Hitchhike. Sleep in a tent. Walk into moutains for few hours and then get back with no food left in your backpack. To try to find a place for your tent in the middle of nowhere at midnight... ...yep, it’s not for everybody. Maaan, I couldn’t even imagine me hitchhiking 2 years ago. But here I am. Meeting new people everyday. Visiting places I couldn’t ever imagine to visit.
I get to hear this a lot when I meet people: I always wanted to do this! I wish I could go here and there!
Well: go and do it! There’s no other option!
Again: I know that not everybody can do this. I kinda realised during my stay here that I’m lucky for the job I have, the people I have around me and the fact that I can explore the world for 5 weeks thanks to it. But if you have the option: book the ticket to the place you ever wanted to visit and let everything else take care of stuff.
I have 5 days ahead in Norway. But I feel like it’s not gonna be enough... so I’m definitely coming back 🙃
Longest description ever. Sorry. I’ve already had 3 beers.
Peace out! ✌🏻 #norway #northway2k18 #city #alesund #romsdal #harbor #hitchhiker #nomad #sea
