Lofoten – Visiting the Fishing Village Museum in Å – S4 E10

What to see in Lofoten – Norwegian fishing history at Å Fishing Village Museum I took the ferry from Bodø to Lofoten and visit the Fishing Village Museum in Å to see how the fishermen used to live back in the days when they travelled far to join the winter fishing in Lofoten for the cod. It was very interesting and I got to learn about the cod liver production, how fishermen used to sleep in or under their boats in the midle of the cold winter nights and I got to see their boats and equipment. A very interesting day in Lofoten!

Shocking amounts of plastic waste in the Norwegian archipelago – S4 E05

I have never been an environmentalist and I am not a big fan of the man made climate hysteria. I think the media and our politicians are hyping up a demon that isn’t really there. I am not sure why, but there is no question there is money in it somewhere. Climate change is not a new thing. Climate has always been changing and will continue to do so no matter how much taxes we pay and what cars we drive. Scientists agrees that the climate is changing, but it is the politicians and the media who claims this is a man made climate change, not the mass of scientists.

No one ever said plastic is good for our nature as[…]

This episodes gets a flying start with a BBQ at the arctic circle.

I then give you a fast driving roadtrip on my way up to Sørarnøy where I meet the crew from “In the same boat”. Thru a facebook group I had been tipped off about this project named «In the same boat» who is collecting plastic on the coast of Norway.

I made contact with the leader of this group and Rolf invited me to join them for a[…]
