Where the dreams
The book is written in Norwegian and its
original title is "Nå er det din tur". It means
something like that: Now it's your turn (time) to go on tour!
I am holy convinced that this book would have a great
international potential if it was issued in English and Spanish. The book is
about ordinary people on unusual places. It visualizes a world of adventurous
opportunities, available for most people.
The authors, the
two experienced Norwegian travellers, Odd Harald Hauge and Lars Ebbesen (from
the well-known tour and trekking operator Hvitserk - www.Hvitserk.
no), describes 10 extraordinary tours, and the book is full
packed with breathtaking reports, extracts from diaries, great stories,
interesting historic background information about explorations and discoveries,
idioms, slogans, words of wisdom, maps, useful advise and big beautiful photos.
The book's big format (27
X 27 centimetres) comes to its fullest right when photos cover the whole page,
and that make you even more curious about the world's last frontiers. All this
will freak your adrenaline already before you start your next
Even though it
looks so professional, be aware that these photos are not taken by professional photographers, for example on mission from
National Geographic, who lay down for months waiting for the optimal light
conditions. All photos are taken by amateurs, travellers with heavy backpack,
who like explorations and adventures. Sometimes they have been totally exhausted
on their tours. Instead of resting they have taking some fantastic photos and
caught unforgettable moments, showed in this book.

part of the book is about the east cost of Greenland. It starts with the heading "Forgotten by humans -
not by god!"

Når drømmer blir virkelighet skjer det
noe med oss, vi blir aldri den samme igjen. Hvis
du drømmer om å gjøre noe ekstra ut av feriene dine, så er du ikke
alene. Stadig flere vil oppleve noe spesielt, og kan gjerne
yte for å nyte. I dag er det ikke lenger slik at de store vidder og de høye
topper er forbeholdt polfarere og fjellklatrere. De gikk foran, men sporet etter
dem er bredt, og har plass til mange som vil på tur.
Denne boka skal hjelpe deg over terskelen, fra
turist til turist. Den er en idé- og inspirasjonsbok, den kan lede deg til en av
livets store opplevelser. Boka beskriver 10 uvanlige reiser; fra Grønland til
Kilimanjaro og rafting i Grand Canyon. De flere hundre fantastiske bildene viser
at det er folk fra 13 til 70 år som når sine mål. Det er rett og slett vanlige
mennesker på uvanlige steder. Skulle noen være i tvil om det er verdt den ekstra
innsatsen, så forteller bildene at man blir lykkelig på tur. Og uansett; det er
alltid sunt å drømme!
