Does the Sky Connect Us?

Some days ago I sat down with a map and looked for a route to Egypt. My intention is to move in that direction, because I would like to see the Nile.

I’ve decided to only travel on the surface of the Planet, by train, bus and boat. So how to get from Sweden to Egypt?  If I take the west route I have to go trough Libya and the east route will take me trough Syria. Suddenly the conflicts in those two countries came close, very close. I was involved.

When I sat there looking at the map I heard the airplanes flying over me. So easy!
We live in this nice and safe country and then we take a nice and safe airplane and we are in an other place far away. Jumping over all the problems on the ground.

I don’t know the exact flight route to Thailand from Sweden, but there are countries like Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Burma on the path. If there were no airplanes — If we had fast trains instead, would we become more or less connected?

I took those three pictures today on a bike tour, thinking about this question.

Double Rainbow

Double Rainbow

Went out to take a picture for the first blog post.
Grey wether but I found a nice motive.
Went inside and started to upload it to my computer.

Looked out the window:
Strong wind, heavy rain and a breathtaking golden light.

Went out again, photographed the forest and the raindrops.
Turned and saw the double rainbow.
— Thank You! What a wonderful gift to start this journey with.
Amazing.
