Travelling is supposed to bring its guests surprises. To us Roatan turned out to be so beautiful that we just could not leave after just five days. Inger Lise, Marius and I decided to go through a full open diver course to get the licence to dive. The old ones did the same thing back in 1990 in
Thursday night Tina and Inger Lise came to Honduras to spend the last three weeks with us. It was lovely to be united again. We took a boat to a true Carribian island called Roatan. The boat ride was tough. Both Tina and I had to feed the fishes... On Tuesday is the return. But out here you find

My school is part of a big international project including 7 institution who have composed a musical based on the theme migration. The first performance takes place in Gazientep (Turkey), and the last one in Grimstad.
Countries visited so far in my life
Together with my son Marius (15) I will travel to a great number of countries this summer. The reason why is that Marius invited me to join him because he receives some money at his "Confirmation" April 08. This is a seremony in the church. Last summer he was in Quito in a summercamp organized by the peace organization CISV. This summer he will meet with people he met there from Lima, Bogotá, Quito and Mexico. At the end of the trip we will stay with an old friend of Arve living on Manhatten, New York.
