Notes from the writer:

Originally it was the idea, that the many pictures in this website should "speak" for themselves and "say" all there is to say, and somehow be able to convey at least some of the great beauty, spirit and soul of planet Earth in all its unique splendour and horror - - -
Therefore,- originally there were not so many stories, tall tales and legends from the many places I have been, - or about the things I have seen and done in this wonderful world of ours - - -
Just pictures, pictures, pictures - - - -

However, - over the years I see that this has gradually changed, which is quite natural, because I usually keep away from the obvious well known tourist places with their artificial glitter and tough business environment, where everything is already known and where no new and exiting experiences can be expected.
Therefore, if you go your own ways, - off the beaten track and "behind" things -, and want to show it to the world, it is necessary with some kind of explanation, and this seems to be the way I have done recently, and I am quite sure, that I will continue along the same lines in the future.
It's better that way - - - -

And, - by the way -, Kung Fu Tse is absolutely right about his words of wisdom concerning travel!
