Go wandering around the woods, the lakes and the fjords.

If someone offered me the possibility i would go right away. Even would consider selling all mys tuff and use the money to get settled and try to build a new collection when I am all good there.

I hate Holland, hate my work and hate just everything right here.
Sounds like my life. Here in the "Varmland" region of Sweden there is actually a lot of Dutch and Germans settling down to live a quiet life in the woods, bying cheap houses because of all the natives leaving for the bigger cities
Damn! You´re so lucky! :cheers:

Besides, I would assume Finland is the "Jerusalem" for black metal freaks.
You obviously don't know anything, do you.. :lol:
I wasn't even trying to be funny. :lol:

Isn't Finland, like, one of the main strongholds for black metal? Like Norway. Or like Tampa, Florida and Sweden in the old days for death metal. Aren't there a lot of BM bands in Finland? (or some well known ones anyway)?

Norway is definitely worth a visit! Aurora borealis up north, majestic fjords, mountains and waterfalls here in the western part and many other places throughout the country. I wouldn't say Norway has a lot to offer culturally, but if you're in need of serene, tranquil scenery, long hikes amidst majestic nature and adventurous climbs and such, this is the place. The perfect place to relax from the busy urban rhythm.

Here are a few ideas:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trolltunga (near Odda)

The Hardanger area in general is worth exploring! You could explore Hardangervidda (a majestic mountain plateau), the fjords etc..

Here is some more info:

http://www.visitnorway.com/en/Stories/N ... Hardanger/

Also, a good way to start a trip to Hardangervidda (with tent, or you can stay at special cabins) is the so-called Mågelibanen, an old railroad that goes "straight up"! some photos here:

http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mågelibanen

I'm not sure if this is still in operation though, as the county has been cutting funding in recent years.

If you go to the Odda area, you can experience the famous glacier Folgefonna. There are weekly excursions (glacier guiding). More info here:

http://www.visitsunnhordland.no/en/Arti ... onal-Park/

http://folgefonni-breforarlag.no/UK/tours.htm

And of course, in my area, there's the following:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preikestolen

http://www.regionstavanger.com/en/Produ ... -Man-farm=

http://www.gjesdal.kommune.no/web/web.n ... 15002F3C48

Månafossen (the lunar waterfall) is highly recommended, and if you procceed further up the mountain you'll come to the Frafjordheiene (a looooong valley basically, that is absolutely amazing! Great for camping out!). There's a photo in the above waterfall link.

Hope this helps!

horrorC.K., obviously I don't know your financial situation and your links to family/friends, but you have been talking about how depressed you are with your life and where you live for such a long time now. Maybe you ought to really think about paying that price to change things. A house and record/VHS collections are nice in a nice life. But if you don't have a nice life then maybe none of that is all that important.

It's very scary to change things completely... but maybe you should take out some time and really consider how it would be to throw it all away and start all over somewhere else. Are you gonna be happy in 10 years time if you don't change anything? Obviously (again) I don't know what would make you happy but I really do think you ought to consider the alternatives. :hello!:
