Mr. Bliss

January 28, 2013

By Koseli.

I’m always a fan of Radiolab, but the Bliss series is especially interesting. In one of the episodes, they interview Aleksander Gamme, a Norwegian explorer, about his ephoric moment while traveling on a freezing expedition in the far North. I don’t want to give it away — you just have to watch. This may be one of the best YouTube videos I’ve ever seen. It’s left me feeling so happy!

This reminds me of when I was in Saudi Arabia with the military and would get a care package from back home. It’s amazing how those little things like frou frou-y soap and gummi bears can make your day when your whole world is brown on brown on brown. Loved this!

Thanks Maria! A little taste of home can totally turn it all around. Thank you for your service!

This was such a great clip to watch! I have to share it on my site as well – being Norwegian and all. I especially like it when he says “Is it for real?” and “A double sized bag of Cheese Dooodles!”. Thank you, Koseli:)

Thanks for the translation, Marianne! I love that he said that!
