Studenterkredsens Sommermøde x Grundtvigs Højskole 2015

Atter en gang stimlede håbefulde unge mennesker fra nær og fjern sammen på Studenterkredsens sommermøde, der i år foregik på Grundtvigs Højskole lidt nord for Hillerød. Der blev sunget fra Højskolesangbogen, hørt foredrag, diskuteret intenst og drukket vin til langt ud på natten. Tak for en herlig og livlig uge!

Jotunheimen, Norway x 2015

My brother David and I went to Norway to do some trekking and glacier hiking. We drove from Oslo to Jotunheimen National Park, where I hadn't been since I was a boy-scout, 10 years ago and had the exact same age as David. The trip was thereby, in some sense, a nostalgic re-living of my early teenage memories and an obvious opportunity to introduce my brother to a bit of rough and beautiful nature. We spent the first two days in 'Leirdalen', a valley with breathtaking, snow-covered mountainsides and a aggressive, rushing river providing an around-the-clock soundtrack. 
On the third day we went for the big fish: the summit of Galdhöpiggen, 2469 m.a.m.s.l (the highest peak in Northern Europe). 

During the four days we had in Jotunheimen, the weather consisted of primarily snow, hard rain, fog, mist, wind and a bit more of rain, temperatures from -2 °C to 12 °C. On the first night our tent, which was already defect due to some missing, crucial, pieces, was hit by powerful gusts, blew into pieces and ended up being completely useless. Luckily we had a spacious car with great seats and A/C (!), so this ended up being our interimistic bachelor pad for the following nights. As I prophetically told my brother before take-off in CPH, "This is not going to be a pleasure cruise".
