BROKEN DREAMS OF MY HOMETOWN AND A NATION..

I originally posted this on my photography blog http://www.kenneshaw.se

I have been many places in my life, I was born in japan, raised on Honululu Hawaii, currently living in Stockholm Sweden by way of Umeå and Sävar Sweden. There is one place however that I call “home”. I grew up here, had my first love, found out who I was and at the time what I wanted to be.

This e-tapp starts in Flemingberg (huddinge stockholm) and makes it way down to crossing towards Paradis. Read More

However, I have one constant problem always bothering me and the reason I even changed over to a Hammock: I get massive pain in my hips and shoulder when sleeping on the ground. Read More
