International Fair of Tripoli

When I visited Tripoli I knew I had to stop by Oscar Niemeyer´s International Fair. This fairground was intended as an exhibition for futuristic modern architecture but was never really completed due to the civil war commencing in Lebanon in 1975. Now it´s mostly abandoned, that is if you´re disregarding the occasional tourist coming to…

Ouzville

A 15 min drive south of Beirut you´ll find the village Ouzai. It might not be a very extraordinary place when you first spot it. As I would pass by from time to time while on the highway going south I never gave it a second thought. But one day my friends and I decided…

Berlin

I went to Berlin the first and only time when I was 16 years old during a school trip but honestly I don´t remember that much. I just remember that we stayed in a shitty hostel with some weird graffiti on the walls, that we visited Check Point Charlie and that we passe by the…

Vinjerock 2016

This week we escaped the city to for some hiking and cuddling up in my family´s cabin in the mountains of Norway. We got a ride all the way up and got to cross the Hardanger bridge by foot. I have never done that before but wow was that beautiful! Not only does the bridge…
