Travel experiences

Past trips:

I have lived in Lithuania, Germany, Sweden, Slovakia and hitch-hiked in 33 countries (more than 100'000 km). Traveled few times above the arctic circle - ultimately loved it.

Planned trips:

One of my ideas is to experience hitch-hiking in all 45 (?) countries of today's Europe, and to visit every single capital in Europe. | When I was a little kid, fascinated by Jack London books, I said to myself: one day I'm gonna walk by foot to the North Pole! However, I am not sure about it now. Some winter, though, I am planning to go into the wild of the north Scandinavia (Lapland) and try to survive there for at least 1 month with the only provisions I'll carry with me. | Even though for the last few years I was residing calmly in Sweden without traveling so much, in general I do have a habit to stay and live and work in different places, experiencing local life not as a tourist, but as an explorer who tries to melt within the local community and its daily routine. My next big desire is to go to Asia in my own car or on my own bicycle, then walk from the Indian ocean coast up to Tibet, staying/living/working anywhere I can. Someday I simply want to abandon this fancy and poshy life in rich Europe. However, I never forget that "When the wishes are few, the heart is happy. When craving ends, there is peace." (The Buddha)... peace... love... empathy...

We are all vegans in the family, that's why no animal products (no meat/fish, no milk products and such) are allowed at our place, and prefferably no alcohol.

Public transport:

there is no public transport around, but we live 3 km from a train station where there is a commuter train to Stockholm every hour.
