Jakarta

I stayed in Jakarta earlier this year for 1 week and here are a random collection of photographs I took during my stay. Jakarta was mix of different sides. Everything from more modern and sleek places to a lot of ghetto and chaos. Mostly the latter one. A lot of street food and general businesses operating on a street level. I was lucky enough to meet some nice locals during my stay as well.

Kuala Lumpur

It was a short stay of only 3 days in Kuala Lumpur, but still it was an interesting little trip there. First of all it was the first time I went to a Muslim country, except the airport in other middle eastern countries. Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur had a very mixed vibe. It was a mix between the middle east and south east Asia, with a heavy presence of Indians and Chinese people. Shockingly, only 50% of Malaysia are actually Malay, and this just shows how mixed the country is. Highly conservative in daytime, yet surprisingly open nightlife. Its a city of two worlds.

Bangkok

After Vietnam, Thailand was next and starting with Bangkok. This was my 2nd time here. I honestly didn’t enjoy Bangkok too much my first time here, but I had decided to give it another shot, this time with a bigger budget than my broke student budget from last time. Also, this time I had been lucky enough to get more insider tips of where to go and which places to check out – and this undoubtly led to me liking Bangkok a lot more this time around. I especially enjoyed Thonglor and Ekkamai area, a very hip and trendy area with a lot of locals hanging out.

Ho Chi Minh City

The first destination of my Hello World travel was Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I have previously only been to Bangkok in Southeast Asia, so it was interesting to see both the similarities and differences. One thing is for sure, the traffic in Vietnam is absolutely crazy. Even at green light crossing the road you’ll have to dodge motorbikes coming your way, the stream of motorbikes just never ends – pretty much everyone has one. I found Vietnamese people to very kind and welcoming. And it was for sure a big contrast between rich and poor in Ho Chi Minh.

Los Angeles

Los Angeles to me was different from what I had expected but still true to many things I had heard about the city prior to going there. Its not as hot as you’d expect for a beach city, at least not when I was there. There is also a huge amount of homeless people around. Public transportation is slow and for me it was a choir getting around. However I did still have some nice times in LA with a variety of different sights.

New York

Early this month I returned from traveling for almost a month in America. This was my first time going there, and I did the route of New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco. I had a lot of fun and met a lot of nice people traveling there also. New York had my highest expectations which is also why I spent the most time there, almost 2 weeks. I stayed in an apartment, pretty much in east village. NY was really a cultural melting pot as I already knew of. I had a hard time defining what is “American” there as most of places I went seemed to always originating from somewhere else. It was the place I felt most at home in USA, and the only place I would want to return to.

Taipei 2013

In the easter of 2013, I returned to Taiwan and Taipei, merely 3 months after my first trip there. I really enjoyed it there last time and was the highlight of the China countries I went to in December, however I was there for only one week. This was a nice chance to visit the things I didn’t get to see and do last time. Now I got to see more of the areas on the outskirts or even outside the city. A little village in the mountain, an old Japanese era village etc. It was a nice break from my work to just travel, enjoy life and have fun. As always, I brought my camera with me and covered the trip.

Shanghai 2012

I came to Shanghai straight from Taiwan… and it was a cold change of pace to say the last. Coming from +25 C and to -5 C gave me a cold welcome to Shanghai. Sadly this made me catch a cold right away after arrival which didn’t make my stay the most pleasant. It was hard exploring the city and staying outside that much when it was so cold. Still, I had some good moments in Shanghai. Good food, nice views, interesting Chinese nightclubs, museums and shopping in both modern and old settings. And this… concluded my journey in Asia 2012.

Hong Kong & Macau 2012

This December I had a little round trip in Asia for 3 weeks. First stop was Hong Kong, including a 1 day trip to Macau. Hong Kong, a melting pot and where west meets the east, business and monkey talking. Macau was all about casinos and gambling, almost like the whole country(even if it’s quite small) was a theme park. Here are the photos from my first stop on my journey.

Tokyo 2012

My return to Tokyo, 2 years after I was there last time. This time I had just been in South Korea 2 weeks before going to Japan, and I was traveling alone, only together with my camera by my side. Tokyo is still a wonderful place and always new things to see and experience. An urban jungle.

South Korea – Seoul, Busan, Yoesu

I was South Korea very recently, I stayed there for 2 weeks and had a really great time. I bought a new camera for the trip which I got put to the test. The Olympus OMD E-M5. A small and handy mirrorless system camera. South Korea left a lot of different impressions on me, both good and bad. But overall I really enjoyed the place and I will undoubtedly return one day. It’s a mix between modern and old cultures. Technology and temples. Seoul was the main attraction of my stay there, and I tend to seek out these megacities. Seoul has a almost a population of 24 million people in the metropolitan areas, making it one of the most populated cities on earth. Lots of people and lots of things happening.

Riga

Even though I just returned from South Korea and Japan, just 1 month before I left on that journey I was a weekend trip to Riga in Latvia. It’s about time I publish some of the photos I took there before I move on to the other material. This was a “leisure trip” together with Procontra, just for relaxation and team building as a design team and ad agency. It was an interesting and fun trip to the ex-soviet country.

Barcelona – Class contrasts

During my short stay in Barcelona and already within the first day it was quite clear to me that Barcelona was a city of contrast, in more than just one aspect of the word. It’s quite the tourist place, and it has nice buildings and locations, but you don’t need to even walk into any dodgy back alley to see all the huslters walking around to trick some stupid tourists or snatch their wallet. But when the night actually comes around and you do happen to walk in the alleyways, it’s almost absurd how frequently you’ll be bombared with offers of everything from the illegal scene. From all the drugs you can imagine to completely ongoing hookers that are pretty much begging you for sex(and money).

Bangkok

On my way back to Norway, moving back there from Australia, I decided to drop by Bangkok in Thailand on my way back, and took a few days off there to explore and see the place. I was lucky enough to meet locals who showed me around what Bangkok had to offer. I honestly got a bit mixed reactions of Bangkok and it has without any doubt been the most ghetto place I have ever been to so far. Very strong contrasts between the very rich and the very poor.

See through my eye

Equipped with a camera, wide angle lens and an iPod, I walked the streets of Melbourne and collected random shots of the urban city life of Melbourne. The wide angle shots created a very unique and interesting super wide/stretched look to the photos which makes it feel as if you’re seeing it through my eyes.

Tokyo

Photos from my trip to Japan, Tokyo. Capturing the Japanese culture and surroundings. The locations in these photos are Shibuya, Harajuku, Ginza, Yoyogi, Tskiji and Odaiba. One of my biggest regret from my trip was to not bringing my professional camera along when I went to the Tokyo Tower, so sadly no city overview – which I just have to say was amazing. That is on my “To do”-list for next time I go to Tokyo.
