The idea of a single day devoted to the earth is absurd. In the 49 years since the first Earth Day was celebrated, human civilization—checked by neither morality nor policy—has wrecked devastation upon the planet, increasing with each passing year of excess and inaction the likelihood that coming generations will live in a world unrecognizable […]

I strongly believe that reading, and educating yourself, is the answer to a better life. And ultimately, freedom.

When I returned to Bergen from four chilly days in the Lofotens, the first thing I did after checking into my room on Ovregaten Street was change to lighter clothes and take the Floibanen to the top of Mount Floyen. My ticket is stamped 8:20pm, but I remember it felt like early afternoon on a very sunny day! I stood facing downhill as my fellow passengers and I were pulled up the track to dizzying heights and the city of Bergen quickly fell away below us. At the top, I had a glass of white wine from the Fløien Folkerestaurant and set out to enjoy the walking trails through the forest at the top of the mountain. I had to make a point of getting back to the station in time for the last ride down at 11pm! If you have the Bergen Card, the Floibanen is 50% off, which made the cost of my round trip ticket 50NOK or about $6.45US.
