First day of work

Just a quick update here cuz i cannot think of a proper length post.

I should feel lucky enough that my first working day of my life has been put of until when i'm 20 years old. I wouldn't say that it is because i'm lazy, which i am, but the income i've got from my father if not enough it has been sufficient for an acceptably livable life.

My first day of work was basically what i expected + a lot more rain. My workplace was "cleaning after" a major concert of a world famous band. This involved lots of heavy lifting (and muscle fatigue for 2 days), then some more lifting to help a forklift to get out of one stupid situation it got itself into , then lots and lots of cleaning after the inconsiderate and littering Danes from the night before. This was all performed under very heavy rain and resulted in my feet swimming in water. Was worth it tho , for little more than 15 euros/hour. Go very high standards in Denmark!!  Tho there was only work for 4 hours :(

This is all for today. Have fun and be happy :)

Greatest party of awesomeness ever !!!

Hello guys(and gals) !

Best party experience EVER!!! I'm quite sure i posted in an older post that i'm going to be at one party/concert/awesomeness where one of the best DJ's in the world would play. I had relatively high hopes for that- forst because he's my favorite DJ ever and because last summer i was at a similar one , with an equally famous DJ and it was quite good. Was I in for a surprise tho!!!

This party defines the word -EPIC- and not in the now mainstream way. It's was without a doubt an amazing show with the greatest laser and light effects and the greatest atmosphere one could ever hope for. No wonder that DJ's is so highly sought after and had millions and millions of fans around the world. With 10-12 000 people it wasn't the biggest thing ever, but so much people that are mesmerized so well make for an utterly electrifying place to be.  The DJ himself said that the party was way above average and you could see that he was also enjoying himself. I'll defo go to another one of his gigs , if possible. In short it was great, the music amazing, lighting effects wonderful and all that put into an epic epicness thing!!!

Also i'm again in Denmark now and it's raining a lot and around 12-15 colder than where i was. :( On an upside tho thanks to me being a very good person and helping an old guy thru 2 airports i was awarded by his daughter , free train ticket in first class to my town. If you do good , good comes back at you. :)

Hope you're having an amazing time!

It's good to be a man

.... in Turkey.

It's really amazing how people from different countries can have such different views of the world and different way of thinking than what i'm used to. When i went to Denmark i cannot say that there was a very big culture shock and people were not the same but mostly similar. In Turkey however people see the world in such a different way , so it was a very good opportunity to see how a Muslim country makes out of the world. 

First of all Turkey was quite amazing! The country itself is quite interesting and the cities(not Istanbul) had a very vintage look-like you're back 30 or 40 years. People are extremely polite which i didn't really expect, to such a point that they can get far out of their way just to help you. Men are mostly smartly dressed with shirts and trousers, but at least for my taste they were not at all appealing. Some women however were actually following the muslim ideas and were mostly covered. It was really weird to see women in 35+ degrees with trousers, sweaters, with their traditional headcloths and on top of that a raincoat. Those women weren't that much but still was crazy.

The most interesting part is the position of a man in society. For example we were in a kebab place and it was me( a guy) and 3 women,at the time, and the guy was calling me "the chief  or "the boss" and whenever he asked about something he was addressing me and waiting for me to answer ,listening to me. He wasn't disrespecting women at all,he was quite polite even, but in their culture the man is,as the guy said, the boss and he's looked as the head of the family with no questions asked. I actually liked that , it was a weird ego boost type of thing.

Istanbul on the other hand is very modern and a giant piece of city. 5th largest in population terms according to wikipedia- 12.8 million people. It's incredibly beautiful and just a proper treat to see. A must see in my opinion. Also was in the Asian part of the city so i can say now that i have been in Asia aswell. Went over the Bosphorus which was smaller than what i expected, but still amazingly breathtaking. A thing that i saw was the large amount of mosques there, at one point when we were going on the freeway i started counting them and for 5 km there were at least 15 , but i stopped counting cuz it was close to impossible to count the hundreds of mosques out there.

Overall it was an amazing holiday and would defo go another time if the opportunity arises. I had a blast tho very soon i'll have to go back again to depressing Denmark. :(

I hope you're all good and have a great day/night/week :)

High life and Playboy

Hello there blog readers,

My days have been quite fine since the last time i blogged. There hasn't been anything major or mega interesting , but just small things that make life a bit more interesting. Like a few days ago I was at a disco with my best friend and we had a grand all time. More interesting was that i met with the owner of the national airlines company, who actually had my best friends phone number, but i didn't go deeper into how on Earth she knew him(i've learnt not to ask about some of her iffy acquaintances :P ) . From what you can learn from a person at a disco ,I thought he was a genuinely nice guy and very down to earth. Of course he had 2 bodyguards, but that is expected from someone with so much money. Ouu and his female friend was a Playmate from Playboy 2009, so now i can say that i know a so called "bunny" :P Honestly tho she was dumb as a brick and excluding her face she was quite beautiful. So can i say that i was part of the elite for a few hours?

In the next week or so, the plans are not entirely sure, I'm going to visit Istanbul(both Asian and European part). From people i have heard that it's one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Also it would be the first time i'll be in Asia so that makes me quite excited. It's also always nice to visit a new country, a new continent and new religion.

Hope you're all doing good.
