Oh, take me back

I used to quite like everyday life in Stockholm, but since I got back from the US I can’t seem to get used to waking up early, being indoors all day and having a schedule to adapt to. Guess I’m lucky to at least have a job that I like and awesome people to work […]

To soon to leave

“It’s not like you wasted your time” was Said’s respons to my complaints over how fast six weeks go by. I guess it’s true as time seems to accelerate along with how much I enjoy myself. I can’t think of any trip I made where I experienced as much and met so many new friends. […]

The eighth day

Last weekend on our first trip to Rifle, we went over to check out the “Project wall”. A large overhanging sector hosting numerous hard routes. To the right of the wall there is an orange face which is divided by a beautiful grey streak. A route called The eighth day comes out of an overhang […]

Moving on

After hanging out in Boulder for a couple of days, we drove back to Rifle on wednesday morning. Weather here has not been great so far, but we still climbed loads. I guess one of the upsides with travelling with a person like Said, is that there is almost nothing that can keep him from […]
