It hasn’t even been a year and I’m back in Japan again.
Since the last time I was here, my good friend @nunosans moved to Tokyo. So I stayed a week in his little flat, in Takadanobaba.
I feel very lucky that the Sakura (cherry blossom trees) were blooming when I arrived. It has been something that I’ve been wanting to see for a long time. This post will be very pink.
I mainly shot film during this trip, but the few selected photos in this post are shot with my Canon 60D, Sigma 30mm/f1.4.
It’s has been three months since I last visited my old home London, which is way too long. It was great to be back and gave me a much needed boost.
But before that I went to see Catarina, a new friend who made me motivated to shoot film again. So I brought my old Pentax MX and got the train to Cambridge to meet up with her.

Back in London I didn’t shoot as much, but here are a few shots of more lovely people.
Because one hike per year is far from enough, me and Fredrik went to Jämtland in September for another one.
It was pouring down when we woke up, so I made breakfast in the tent abside. A coffee and porridge with cinnamon and a bit of jam.
The plan for this hike was to make it easier than the previous and focus on good food and to relax. It made it harder when it rained so much.
When we left Stockholm I expected a couple of sunny autumn days. Good thing we’re always prepared, even for snow and hail.
Luckily the rain passed when it was time for dinner.
And now for a real treat: Blueberry pancakes, bacon with maple syrup/raspberry jam.
We barely finished our dinner before it started raining again. Time for a cup of tea and then some sleep.
Good morning! It was a very misty morning, and after the cold night my tent had a border of snow surrounding it.
It continued like this for most of the day until we got down from the mountain.
Since it was the last night out we wanted to treat ourselves to a nice dinner. But we were very tired and kept messing everything up. And it started raining again.
Note to self: If you’re going to bring Schnapps and white wine, don’t mix them up when cooking. It will ruin it.
The day after I could treat myself to a proper lunch at the mountain station. I felt sorry for Fredrik though, he rested in a sofa with a fever.

We packed our stuff before the rain came. I can’t remember if I stopped shooting today because of the rain or if I was too tired. Probably a bit of both.
We are now one day away from Glittertind (2,465m).
We reached Spiterstulen station and it looked like something out of LOTR. We all started humming the Riders of Rohan tune.
After a nice break and more waffles we went back out in the rain again.
We camped close to the bottom of the mountain Glittertind and went to bed early. Before I fell asleep I read a few pages in my Moomin philosophy book.
Time to walk across Norway’s 2nd tallest mountain.
But first, blueberry porridge.
Once we crossed the river and reached the path up the mountain, Eric read us a poem about water.
Time to celebrate today’s effort!
After a good nights sleep we all felt happier. The sun was out and we had a lot of time to just relax now.
And we’re back in Gjendesheim! Tired but happy.
And that’s it, our trip to Jotunheimen. Here’s a map of our route and camping spots.
