Sinus infection on the flight, 0 NOK on my bank account and it’s inhumanely early – but at least we’re in Abu Dhabi and I’ve never been more excited in my life. And “we” as in I picked up a weirdo on the way, Rune, who is joining me and the Refuga gang.
Just left A-town! Right now I’m still all over the place with things I need to finish before I’m leaving mother Europe. But, I feel the happiness. Knowing I’m on my way to something I’ve dreamed about since I was young.
