About me

  English version here

Jeg hedder Thomas og er født i 1965 i Himmerland, i landsbyen Gedsted. Efter en lidt rodet tilværelse med mange flytninger, højskoleophold, rejser og forskellige jobs, flyttede jeg til Aarhus i 1995. Her startede jeg på pædagoguddannelsen som jeg afsluttede i 1999. Jeg var i forvejen uddannet elektriker.

Jeg arbejdede dels på døgninstitution og dels i klubregi frem til 2007 hvor jeg i forbindelse med den store omlægning i Aarhus kommune fik job som IT administrator og supporter for en række institutioner. Samtidig var jeg vicevært i den ejendom min lejlighed var en del af. I fritiden var jeg vinylsamler blandt mange andre ting, samlingen solgte jeg i 2014 for at samle penge sammen til den rejse min bog handler om. Jeg tog afsted i oktober 2014 og rejste det meste af et år frem.

Nu bor jeg i Ceske Budejovice i det sydlige Tjekkiet sammen med min kæreste Katka og hendes søn Jakub. Jeg har fået tjekkisk ID kort og forsøger løbende at lære sproget. Det går lidt trægt fordi vi taler engelsk hjemme, men vi vægter en glidende kommunikation.

  Dansk version

My name is Thomas, born in 1965 in Himmerland, Denmark in a small village Gedsted. After a kind of messy life with many changes of location, stays on folk high schools, traveling and different jobs, I moved to Aarhus in 1995 and settled down, more or less. I started an education as social worker which I completed in 1999. I was already educated as electrician.

I worked partly at residential institution and partly in the clubs for youngsters up to 2007.  I  changed to a job as an IT administrator and supporter for a number of institutions in Aarhus. At the same time I was a caretaker of the property my apartment was a part of. In my spare time I was a vinyl collector, among other things, the collection I sold in 2014 to collect money for the trip my book is about. I left Aarhus and Denmark in October 2014 and travelled most of the following year.

Now I live in Ceske Budejovice in southern Czech Republic with my girlfriend Katka and her son Jakub. I’ve got Czech ID card and continuously trying to learn the language. It takes some time because we speak English at home, but we emphasize a smooth communication.
