a year and a half ago, Allan key in one 70 centimeters deep excavation, fell, and struck out so violently, that he never came back to life as maskinfører and laborer.

It was a Friday afternoon, so we agreed that I would probably just go home and relax for the weekend, sugar he in, and he followed her round of his cigarette.

the Weekend ended, but it did allans chainsaw amazing not. The days, weeks and months went by, and eventually he lost his job in eastern Jutland.

Suddenly I was standing without a roof over their head. I lived in a townhouse down there to 6000 dollars per month, and I could not pay.

In any time was Allan homeless, and slept with family and friends. Until he decided to return home to Vendsyssel, where he was born and raised.

I have lived in many places. There, where there was work to get. But now drew it in me to come north again. Here you can always smell the salt from the sea, smiles.

Allan belongs in the nature and by the sea. There he finds peace. But it need not necessarily be in Vendsyssel.

- My better half is thailænder. If only I can get my pension, then I can move down to her.

But it is not entirely straightforward, and Allan has not much faith in the system.

- It is Denmark in a nutshell. I have pleasantly paid much in taxes through 43 years, but when you have a need for something the other way .. and sugar, he explains that a life in Thailand will also be good for health.

- When you have all the pain I have, then you have really good heat.

Therefore, looking for the couple not for family reunification in Denmark. They met each other through mutual friends in Sweden, where Allan in a period lived and worked.

- It is not the economic, that pulls in our relationship, it's damn built up on love, he laughs and strikes out with his arms in the small one-bedroom penthouse apartment.

On the dining table stands a large jam jars that are half filled with small ravklumper, as Allan has found on the beach.

- It is the kind of thing I go and do, I gotta move me a little, even though I have no trouble with the go. I use a walker most of the time, he explains and shows a larger lump.

He finds them best in the dark, which he lit with an ultraviolet lamp.

- So, lit up like gold, he says. the

But he must share the catch with others, he rarely take out alone more.

- I fall over the once in a while, so it's nice, there are others.

Allan has grown up by the beach, in the Loop, and he has been looking for the golden nuggets in the shallows as long as he can remember.

- As knejt I found very much amber. Yes, people call me Amber-Jensen.
