Allmänt, Berlin

The 6th of January came. It was the day of my flight back to Europe. I decided I wanted to move back to Berlin so on the 6th of January I had my flight with a stopover at Copenhagen for 6 hours. FUN! Anyhow on the flight I booked extra leg space and thank god I did. Because the space was tiny. I mean not like Ryanair or short haul flights tiny, but it was definitely not huge. Specially since I am 184cm. The day started with me having to fix the last things in my apartment, giving up the keys and so on. I headed over to the airport and I got there so early. I was the first one in the queue for check in. Like I was there 55 min before the check in even opened?? Anyhow I got on the flight and actually fell asleep almost right away because I was so excited. Unfortunately I woke up just as we were about to take off. So I got to se the sunset over Mexico but it also meant I could not fall asleep again! Ever! Like I was awake for the remaining 10 hours of that flight. UGH!

I arrived in Copenhagen, picked up my bags and headed over to terminal 2 where AirBerlin fly from. To get to terminal 2 I had to actually go outside for 400m or so. It was snowing, freezing and all I had was a not so very warm leather jacket. Yay! My hands had never been so cold before since I was so used to the heat in Mexico. Omg it felt like my hands would fall off. Don´t worry boys and girls, they didn´t. So I got checked in and started the now 5 hour wait I had until the next flight. I brushed my teeth, bought the amazing ginger soy latte at Joe and the Juice, killed som time on grindr and walked around quite a lot all over the airport. Oh yeah I also bought a very cozy and big scarf from H&M.

25 hour after I first stepped into Cancun international airport I arrived in Berlin. I got the best greeting by Mitch, yay, which made me so happy! So babes, I am now back in Berlin and it feels so, so, SO good! Like I know there is not a singel place in the world where I would rather be than here right now. And that really is a great feeling to have. Absolutely no regrets because I know that I made the right decision. So here I am. 1,5 years later I´m back in the coolest, edgiest and most dynamic city!

Berlin I´m home

Yes, the rumors are true!

I made the decision to resign. I´m not sure how much I actually can tell about this without being put to jail or at least getting a fine. So I´m not going to say so much more about that. Although I do need to mention that it was absolutely the right decision to make. Yes, I do miss some of my friends I´ve made in Mexico. Yes I do miss..... No actually I think that was about it! I do NOT miss the work at all. I do NOT miss the feeling of not being able to be myself. And I absolutely do NOT miss the corrupt mexican police.

Anyhow I left and 3 weeks after when I´m writing this I feel so incredibly much better! I´m actually like a person again. Yaay go me! So to anyhow who feels stuck in their job or even life, if you are not happy in you everyday life, make a change! I did and it really paid off! "But Oscar Mexico is so warm and such a beautiful place." Well, yes it is! But how does that even matter if you are not happy. You can be at the freaking paradise and still be unhappy due to the circumstanses or others. So I thought for my self, I´d rather be happy and freaking freezing my ass off In Berlin than being unhappy in beautiful Mexico.

"Oscar, I hate ordering food because I´m so slow at deciding".

"This really is life bro!"

"Carpe f*cking diem"

Many quotes from my bro Angelo, OR simply called Angebro..... You get it? See what I did there? Anyhhwo christmas happened in Mexico and I honestly did not have any christmas feling at all. There was no snow (to be honest there was no snow in Sweden either at the time but you get my point), no warm lovely feeling from my grandparents, my little brother didn´t scream my name running around the house wanting to play, no Kalle Anka (!!!), and also since I recently became vegan there was non of my grandmas meatballs. Ugh! SO christmas was not the best even though all of the Nordics tried to celebrate together, which we did. But as you can imagine it was not at all that kind of christmas you get with your family. Whatever, I guess I´m growing up and then you can´t do everythin with your family, but honestly though I have been living my myself for a while now and I rarely see my family anymore so was it really to much to ask to actually be able to celebrater christmas with them?! Well YES it was, apparently!

After this super amazing christmas my bro Angelo came to visit me, yaay! We met in Siciliy actually and immediately bacame friends. He is such an positive and inspiring person. VERY social and have no problem talking with anyone at the street. Which is admirable, but also pretty freking annoying when we are in a hurry trying to get somewhere on time, and he´s chatting up with some random person on the street. GAAWD! But it´s good tho because I definately practise on having patient. Hahah lol kidding, yo´re the best bro!

So we did all these cool mexican things together, we went to Chichen Itza where I guided a little private tour for him even though he was more interested in taking photos of the pyramid rather than listening to me, we drove all the way to Coba, Tulum and even a cenote called Ik Kil. It was actually pretty ahAmazing to have a last exploration around Mexico before leaving.

In this job, when you have days off you don´t want to stay at home and just "chill". Because of the days off are so few you want to actually get up early and do stuff. For example one could take the ferry over to Isla Mujeres and enjoy a full day driving a golf cart around this Island, drinking coconuts and taking cool pictures. At least that is what I did.

Chichen Itza is one of the modern seven wonders of the world. The place it self is just so historically important, mainly for the Maya people. They watched the stars here during hundreds of years to be able to make their calendar. They could also predict eclipses years before they actually occurred. The Mayan where just years ahead of their time in mathematics, architecture and astronomically. That is why this place is so important. There is just so much information and history connected to this place. After visiting this place one time I was then 5 weeks later expected ti guide a tour here in Swedish. Wow! Can you imagine how much I was studying for this excursion?! Loads and loads of compendiums, information and also that i need to remember it when standing in front of the guests. Fortunately I was already guiding guding some tour back in Sicily, Etna and Randazzo for example, so I already kind of knew how to do it.





There is a 2hour bus ride to get to Chichen Itza. So obviously I had to update the world on how the tour was going via Snapchat.

As you can see, El Castillo (the pyramid) has four sides with 91 steps on each side. If you add these steps that equalls 364 steps. Which is suppose to symbolise one year for us. Since one year is 365 days and then a leap day each 4 years. One of the pyramids sides has a snake coming down from the top of the pyramid and down to the ground. This snake honors the Mayan history where a blue eyed man came down from the sky, out of this snakes mouth and down to the Mayans. He then teaches them mathematics, architecture and how to watch the stars properly. So this is why the Mayans where so cleaver. Anyhow once every sixth month, 21st of mars and 22nd of September, when the sun is perfectly lined up with the walls of the pyramid it looks like the snake is coming down into the ground. Thanks to reflections of the walls it looks like the snake is slingering on its way down to give the mayans their knowledge.

There is actually a place in Mexico that has turtles swimming close to the beach. The place is called Akumal and it is absolutely breath taking as you can see. The turtles come here every day to eat the sea grass that grows here. Akumal beach has quite a lot of rules how to behave next to the turtles and also how to behave among the seaweed. For example you are not allowed to have any sun screen on. You are also not allowed to put your feet down when snorkeling. I got the opportunity to snorkel over the coral reef here and also with the turtles. It was such an amazing experience!!

Mexico is a really cool country with so much to offer. I have many many great stories to tell yáll soon. It is almost christmas and probably freezin back in Europe so here is two of my absolutely favorite drinks you should try if you ever get to travel to Mexico. You have to order a yellow and sizziling Mango Tango. It is a Mango Daquiri. The second one is named Miami Vice and it is the absolute best drink you will try,. Queeeen, Miami Vice is half a Pina Colada and half a strawberry daquiri. OMG double trouble! YASSS!

Do you ever feel mentally exhausted and just beaten down from society? Well kids, let me give you the truth. So do I. Almost every singel day to be honest with you. Society is beating me up and sometimes it just feel like I can´t fight back no more. Let me spill the T for you.

Growing up as a gay boy in a small close minded town was absolutely not easy. I honestly had a really hard time and I will always carry these memories and experiences with me my whole life. Usually I am pretty good at not feeling beaten down and keeping this happy-everything is fine-face to people. Lately that is getting harder and harder and it is really not a nice feeling. When I was living in Berlin I was standing on my own two feet, I decided who I was going to interact with, where to live, what to do, what people to surround me with and so on. That freedom is partly taken away from me at the moment. Or at least that is what it feels like. To everyday being "forced" to sit and hear from the majority of people I am working with that I will find a girlfriend soon and I will get married and have kids in the future. To ALL. THE. FUCKING. TIME. having to listen to those straight people going on about me supposed to have a girlfriend just really makes me feel like my own happy and energetic Oscar personality is dying a bit for each day. Being surrounded with straight people who has no idea what we gay people has gone through or what we still go through is really not easy. I hope I can be honest with you guys. But I really really do miss Berlin. I miss Mitch, that one person who can make me laugh so hard no matter what had happened before. He is such an amazing person and I am really happy to have him in my life. I miss Santi, my queen. Everytime I see you I get so amazed. Because you are always yourself no matter what. You have an incredible mind and this understanding of people that I will never get. Honestly I am not at all the best person to show graditude or affection and for that I have nothing but regrets. I am really happy for having you guys in my life ❤

Where is this post even going now? No one knows and I am just being kind off emotional at the moment. Ugh go away I hate emotions and I want to be a robot. I not so sure what I am trying the get at with this post anymore. I started out with these retorical questions and trying to be all grown up and fancy about it but yeah that passed by pretty quickly. I guess what I am trying to say is that society is absolutely insane. I hate being this gay boy in a straight mans world where pepople approach me assuming that I am straight and that I like naked girls. NO SIR FROM YESTERDAY NIGHT I DO NOT WANT TO GO TO YOUR STRIPCLUB!

2016 has absolutely not been an easy year. Brexit, Pulse Shooting, hate crimes, Trump, terror, Katya did not won RuPauls Drag Race All Stars2... the list goes on and I am happy that there is only 23 days left of this year. Even though the society I am finding my self in at this moment most likely is going to be there even though the world has completed its circle around the sun yet one more time. I have my hopes. I do wish for a more open and loveable society. 2017 please be more understanding. Please be kinder. Please be more loving. And for gods sakes please stop being so aggressively abusive to one another!

So what happens when you arrive in Cancun, Mexico? You get to walk through Cancuns International Airport. It´s like any other airport I suppose except for this one thing. When you have collected your bags and done the immigration and everything ready you need to go through some kind of security. Where loads of security persons stands and tells you to press this big red button. I was like, what? What in THE * is going on? Is this a lottery or something? They where like, noo press it press it PRESS IT! I was like okay chill and so I did and this green light flashes so you can keep going? Like what the actual fuck? At least I have not ever seen this thing before anywhere but maybe it is common? I do not know... Anyhow I have later figured out that this button is a slump generator if they are going to check you bags for illegal stuff or if they let you pass. Seems legit?

Anyhow, just landed in Mexico and off we pop to our apartments in Cancun. First impression is good. Almost straight into bed since we had a very tight schedule with excursions going and also ongoing training. The one excursion I have pictures from here is called Sian Kaan. It is a boat safari trip where we actually got to see sea turtles, crocodiles, manatees and loads of birds. It was quite a cool day but absolutely not something I would do on my vacation since I like more adrenaline and adventurous things. Oh yeah we even saw some dolphins which was pretty cool. They really are amazing animals 🐬

We even spotted a Crocodile!
