Kon-Tiki in pictures


In the mid 80s, I got it called someone hobby. After many trips where I always went for the concept of Sol-Strand-Water, I got the interest in underwater sports. For many years, I had taken photography as a kind of hobby, but it did not work out all the time. This hobby now came into a new period as I started working on image material on computer. At the same time, I began to photograph under the water.

The Dolphin in Holstebro became the club where I learned to dive. There was probably a club in Herning, but at the time the swimming pool was under renovation, as some might remember. In addition to looking at what was under the sea surface, I found it also exciting to photograph under the water. This later became one of my many hobbies. At home, the most exciting thing in my opinion is to dive on the many wrecks spread throughout the country.

Kon-Tiki and Olaf la Courin Krk harbour

The picture is taken in the havnen i Krk, Kroatien.

In 1990 I bought this motorboat - a 17-foot speedboat. It was ideal to take along also south, and it was possible to reconcile the many interests: diving, photography and a boat trip. The boat was named "Kon-Tiki" after a proud old boat.

It has been photographed here in the harbor of Krk - Croatia where I have been 8 times with the boat, last summer 2004 where we had a couple of wonderful weeks. It was in the port of Novalja, from which it went to the islands Pag, Maun, Olib, Silba and Veli Losinj. It also became a meeting with dolphins. In Denmark, we go to Tunø every time, a quiet island that I never get tired of.

The 20th of August 2015 was the last trip. The boat was sold on April 8, 2016
At the top I have gathered some material from the many sailing trips with Konti Tiki, tours that usually took place in Croatia.
