so there I am, flying high
sensing the landscape passing by

light blue sky, dark blue sea
mountains tall, right next to me

I smell the flowers, the wind's in my face
I close my eyes, I feel amazed

how lucky am I to see all this
with all my senses - nothing to miss

it is my country, it is my land
and the key to joy - right in my hand

I smile to myself, feeling thankful like few
I don't take it for granted, the freedom to do -
- things like this, and enjoy them too

and with my love, right in front of me
seeing the same scenery

a joyride, from the back of a bike
nature and wildness - what's not to like?

to drive along - with wind and sun,
I smile and feel: here I belong

green fields and white snow and blue blue sea
and a bunch of nice people - around me

a joyride of life, I enjoyed so much
I am grateful for it
for the moments non stop

I hope you enjoy your moments too

and if I can
- then so can you


- I spent 4 wonderful days, road-trip, on the motorcycle with my love one. In company with some great people. Here are my favourite moments : 
Along the fjord.... breathtaking...:-) 

Road to Lysebotn, Rogaland. Yup, still snow ...
On top of the world; Gaustadtoppen in Telemark

Between mountains and fjord: on our way back - ready for take off from Eidfjord
