I am leaving my safe, little home in Norway in only four days, travelling all the way to Indonesia for a month. I’ll be working as a volunteer research assistant, handling wild animals in both terrestrial and marine sites, diving in some of the worlds most species rich waters with the most amazing coral reefs and getting my diving certificate. It all seems a bit unreal still, there’s been so much to pack and prepare for this trip that I haven’t had much time to think of the actual trip itself yet! I’m bringing my Nikon D7000 + a GoPro 3+ Black camera so that I can get some cool underwater shoots, but there’s no internet where I’m going, so all the pictures and videos will be uploaded here after I get back. For the first time in years I finally feel like there’s nothing keeping me here in Norway, and that it’s time to do whatever I want without having to consider anyone else. The feeling of no strings attached is both extremely relieving and a bit scary, but right now it feels kinda nice not knowing what the future brings. This is going to be an adventure for life, and I can’t wait to get there!
