We Are Still Alive

But just barely.. Kidding. We've never been more alive, but there has been a certain radio silence the last few days and there is a perfectly good explanation for that. Which I will get it in a second, but before that we have to talk about the last day in Alesund. It's not very interesting actually, but we went to this Atlantic Park to basically look at fish.

But don't get me wrong, I was stoked because I heard they had penguins and seals and shit there. And any animal that looks good in a tuxedo is aces in my book. But here comes the problem: The Penguins did not put on a show at all. Neither did they put out, but that would be just weird so that's ok really. And the seals, don't get me started on the seals. I didn't even see them. They were hiding in their big ass tank, not even bothering to give me a holler or a high five which I was expecting. I was devastated 

This guy! No fun at all.

All that was left then was a diving show where a diver came down in the biggest tank and started to feed the fish. It there was sharks, barracudas, swordfish and other cool eeh fish in that tank It would be awesome to watch, but seeing a man feeding a bunch of cod really didn't float my boat. His biggest tricks was to cuddle with a wolf fish. You're not supposed to cuddle with wolf fish, you're supposed to shank them! Shank them really good I'll tell you! 

It's a big tank, I'll give em that.

Shout out to Valldal Summer games. Looking forward to come back this summer.

In other words, I was a little bit disappointed with the place, but a least now I've been there . 

Anyways, we walked back to the boat, made some dinner and sat sail towards whatever place we were going next. Nobody knew actually, but  at least I thought we were going to sail along the coast and get scenery like this along the way.

But noo, and here comes the rein why there has been radio silence. We went far out to the sea. Like so far that we couldn't see land for two days. And off course no cell reception either. 4G coverage at sea? Forget about it!

 

Me after I figured out we are not going to see land in a while.

Ocean and nothing but ocean! 

Ocean and nothing but ocean! 

But yesterday evening, on the Norwegian Constitution day, we hit land. A small island called Traena!

Home of 500 people and host of a music festival later in July. We are not here for that though and I sure was glad when we hit shore. Being on a ocean with massive waves for 48 hours straight is like being a yoghurt can in a bathtub with a two year old. You get pretty tired of it. Or so I would imagine.

Yaay!

Yaay!

Since it was our constitution day, we had to check out the island and see if we couldn't mark the day in any way. So we went walking.

I found this to be a great way to celebrate our constitution day. Today we are gonna go rock climbing and the guys are getting impatience as I'm writing this, so I better get going. Talk soon. 

Peace and Love!
