Time flies and this weekend I’ll go to Gothenburg to talk about PCT and Fjällräven Polar at Scandinavian Photo Expo in Mölndal (my talk is 11-12am at friday 12). For this I have put together my own video from my Polar adventure and of course I have to share it with you too as well!

Fjällräven Polar 2017


The sun is shing, snowflakes spinning around in the air. Razor sharp mountains dramatically reaches towards the clear blue sky, Arctic tundra as fa you can see. 300 kilometres wilderness and the only thing that breaks the silence of nature is your own breath, the dog’s paws running across the snow and the whizzing of the sled under

And remember, if you're not applying, it will never be your turn. You have to start your own adventure. ✨
NEW BLOG POST : After reaching Everest Base Camp, my next goal was to climb the 5550 meter high mountain Kala Patthar. It was a really cold morning and it took a long time for the sun to rise behind the highest mountains in the world. When I got close to the top it finally made it up as well and in just a few minutes everything turned from ice cold to warm and nice.
Here it is between Everest (left) and Nuptse (right). ☀️🏔️

It's been some amazing 20 days in the mountains, but tomorrow it's time for me to leave and to fly back to Kathmandu.
There's been three weeks of pain and real hard struggle. There's literally been blood, sweat and tears, but the tears has come from happiness and I've had such a great time too! So many amazing views and so many great memories! 
I wanna thank you all of who's been following along the trip, all of you who's been cheering and sent me sweet messages and happy thoughts. You sure made the hard times a lot easier! From the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU! 🙏💕 (you can keep following me here or at wilderness-stories.com - link in bio - where I will post my full story after I've gotten home)
Yesterday I finished the book 'Into Thin Air' by Jon Krakauer about the 1996 Everest disaster. I've been eager to read this book for a long time but I wanted to save it till I actually was in the mountains the book was all about. 
Loved the book, as I loved his other bestseller Into The Wild - but now I don't have anything to read! Any suggestions what I should start with next?
Nature is such a beautiful place. It keeps remind me over and over again. And it's out there. For everyone. You just have to get out there and expose yourself to it. No one is gonna lift you up that couch - but no one is gonna stop you from getting up either. The only one responsible for filling your life with beauty is yourself. ☀️ Pic over one of the most beautiful views I ever seen. From the decent of Lobuche Peak 3 days ago. ❤️
One thing you really get to practice when climbing is controlling your fears. If you let them take over, even a safe situation can turn out bad.

I am, belive it or not, extremely afraid of heights. But by putting myself in these situations, I step by step learn how to control that fear.

This pic is from the ascent of Lobuche Peak. I'd been climbing for hours and at one point I stopped to look around as the sun started to rise. I suddenly realized how steep it was (do you see the tiny people in the middle of the snow field?) and that I would have to climb down the same way. For a second I freezed, but then realized that I had no other choice than to stop those thoughts and continue. After all it went well, I reached the summit - and I made it down.

Most fears are just in your head, learn to control them and you'll feel stronger and more secure in every parts of your life. 💕
