Ok, so I have wanted to go to Syria for a long time now. So I finally found someone to get me into the country. After the war started, moving around in the country has been hard. You have to have official permissions to move past checkpoints etc. So

So, just left Syria this morning. Vital must have US servers, as I wasn’t able to log on from Syria, but Instagram and Facebook worked. Not a big fan of those, and Snapchat and iCloud were blocked too. Anyways... Just arrived in Beirut, so I will do

Thanks bud, really appreciate it! And thanks to all of you who`ve replied. I will stay safe, I feel like this will be an interesting trip! Also, from what I´ve read from other travelers, the country is more controlled than Western media tells us. Time ... more »

Thanks for letting me know. I`ve been obsessed with the Legion for like 15 years. But I went the academic route and now I`m 35, and only have 2 more years to apply. I`ve done the 1 year mandatory military service we have here. But it is nothing like ... more »

I will keep out of YPG and SDF areas, as they are not government controlled. I know they have a friendly tone, but it is not doable through governmentally approved trips. I got a phone call one week ago saying everything was OK, except security. But

It is so hard to fathom! I love these kind of news.. We`ve been without these kind of news for several year. During the space age in the 60`s/70`s we got something to dream about and reach for every year. This stuff is important in a time where people ... more »

Here’s a band which sings old folk songs from the 13th century with a new twist. I really like the singers voice. The language is old Norwegian, a mix of the old viking language and our current language. Ignore the video, it’s crap https://youtu.be/3JZAhpigTr4 ... more »

Was it worth the wait, Mav? Still want to go back and explore more. Might start over at some point. Didn’t finish up the robot story with the Chech scientist, and he was one of the coolest guys there once he started firing up his robot

As long as it is not Broadford, an Aussie GP is way overdue. It is the world championship after all. Broadford was a pretty boring track though....

I try to pick up backpackers and travelling hippies when I see them. They have good stories, and if I can extend their travel budget by giving them a free ride somewhere, I’m more than happy to do so. People have certainly helped me out like that in ... more »
