Henrik Vikse, a 28-year-old from Bergen, used to work in construction, but found he could not find the time for his favourite hobby — spending time in nature with his dog.
“I’ve been working in construction for about 10 years. I love being active so the work I have isn´t a problem. I could never have an office job that keeps you sitting all day,” he told Nextshark.com
“It was that 7-to-4 job with no flexibility that was the problem. I couldn’t just go on long hikes whenever I had the need for it. That’s also why I decided to start my own business — now I am my own boss.”
“The only thing I regret is why I didn´t do this years ago. I now have the freedom to work a lot in periods, and truly have the passion to follow my dreams. It´s gone surprisingly well.”
His Instagram blog, Akiakthehusky, subtitled “A dog with a nose for adventures”, now has more than 10,000 followers on Instagram.
