I happened to go on a light hike/walk today, which resulted in my first ever contribution to Jo’s Monday walk. Usually I go on hikes/walks on weekends and record them in my weekend posts. The weather and heavy brainstormming at work persued me to use my office training time for a short hike.
I like walking in natural surroundings
It is obligatory to take at least one picture from the top. Do you see a big cruise ship?
Time to go back to office
Thank you for joing me on the journey 😀
After going back to office I continued my work for an hour or so.
On Saturday, with everything in place we decided to go hiking on mount Ulriken (643moh.) It was a good decision after all.

In every season we make interesting memories on mountains. Little surprises wait for us on every corner.
We enjoyed our short breaks for relaxing and chit chatting. The view from every stop was awe-inspiring.
Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley. ~Theodore Roethke
Time to go back! There are hundreds of unpolished stone stairs to hike down. Sherpas from Nepal are building stone stairs by hand with no powertools.
The major portion of 800 m trail is finished. Sherpas are working on the last section near the top. This section was very steep, dangerous and nothing to hold on. I really wanted to showcase this specific part but was asked to walk carefully instead of thinking about taking pictures which I promptly accepted. A tourist (lady) fell down and hurted herself badly just luckily air ambulase was not needed.
We were able to cover a distance of around 10.5 km due to supportive weather with clouds and little breeze.
Did you do anything special on the weekend?

It might be for any reason but I am here now and I want to live it to the fullest. For this moment I belong here.
These are some of the pictures from my tour on Wednesday! Above marked map is for one fine summer day 🙂 In reality it was as you see…
Hope you like tour de Algrøy for this week’s photo challenge.

I could not find any appealing entry for Macro or Minimal Monday! I decided to create Magic. Hope you all like it.

For this week’s photo challenge I decided to share pictures of the world’s biggest and busiest pedestrian crossing in Shibuya district in Tokyo. According to some published figures during rush hours around 2500 people cross the streets at the same time 🙂
I am glad that for once I was part of this crowd and you believe or not but there was not a sinlge incidence of misbehaving. World needs to learn so many things from Japenese people.
You can watch from live camera the present situation 🙂 Soon it will be 4 am in Tokyo. How about watching it tomorrow around 6 pm Tokyo time?
