The author of this page, skiing on a cold day in Guovdageaidnu

Who is behind this page?

I am a Norwegian, grown in Skien, Southern Norway, for more than 37 years I have been living in the north, mainly in Hammerfest and Guovdageaidnu in the county of Finnmark. I have been working among others as a mechanic and a teacher of mechanics, but lately I mainly try to live from what I write.

A good part of my time I spend in Gdańsk in Poland, the main reason for that is the webmaster behind these pages.

Pictures from one of our travels between these places - and some others - you may find here

Here I have put some of my writings. Most is written in Norwegian, some in Sami or English. Gradually here will also appear some texts in Polish, as I am developing my ability of expressing myself in Polish.

On the left side of the screen, you will find my writings sorted according to theme, language and time. Here I present one of them, which partially is translated into English.
