Arctic Surf

Adventure, STAY, SURF

Surfing and summer tend to go hand in hand. So, what on earth is a surf school doing in Norway? Well, the story goes that in the early 1960’s two boys, Thor Frantzen and Hans Egil Krane, were working aboard ships that sailed all over the world. One day, the boys and the ship they worked on arrived in Sydney, Australia. After trying surfing in Sydney, they returned to Norway with a new found passion for surfing. By looking at the album cover of a Beach Boys album they copied the design making their own surf boards. And so, surfing in Unstad Bay began.

Speightstown, Barbados

EARTH, STAY

Our driver, Kevin, is wringing his hands. We have stopped in Barbados’ historic Speightstown to take photographs but he is concerned about me wandering off alone.

“You could get lost,” he frets.

I look up and down at Speightstown’s sole two streets, their rainbow-coloured houses bathed in the afternoon sun.
