Lagos, Portugal - October 2001
Our trip to Portugal was equally balanced by sightseeing and partying. In Lagos we were convinced to stay at a private home and the granny that lived there would not allow the boys and girls in our group to share rooms. (after several nights of wild sex orgies, I suppose this was a welcome relief)
Our first night in town probably counted as the one with the heaviest consumption. It ran late for most but ended abruptly for one individual who had sipped too much Absinthe. (no, not me) Anyway, let's just say we're happy the boys' room had tiled floors which were easy to clean.
Hamburg, Germany - June 1999
Mossman and I were in the 3rd week of our European hostelling trip and we needed to get to Stockholm for soup while on our way to Estonia for the song festival. (the song festival happens once every 5 years and it's massive) Anyway, budget travellers know that overnight train rides are the same as overnight accomodation so the Paris - Stockholm train was a no brainer.
North of the arctic circle, Norway - July 1999
A couple of weeks after we met the crazy guy, Mossman and I visited my old friend Eero. At the time, Eero was living in a small Norwegian fishing village called Lysnes (or something like that). This village is north of the arctic circle and rests on a picturesque fjord. We had flown from Tallinn to Oslo and to save money we spent the night at the airport, sleeping on benches next to an enormous flaccid penis. Eero's one wish was for us to bring beer because in Norway, the cost is almost prohibitive. (something like $100 a case) Arriving in Oslo, I had 24 cans of Saku Originaal which was above the allowable alcohol limit stated on the customs signs. Luckily, there are two exits from the airport - one is marked in red and is for people with stuff to declare, the other is marked in green, is unattended and is meant for those with nothing to declare. Guess which one we chose? Yep - and it worked fine. The next morning we flew to Tromso and from there we had to take a boat to a place named Finnsnes where Eero would pick us up.
