About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Recover from four months of travel and open my arms to other travellers since it has expanded my world so much.

ABOUT ME

I love to travel but now it is my turn to be the one with the arms wide open, ready to embrace fellow travellers and help them enjoy their time in the fine city of Brisbane. I am really, really easy-going and very playful - ie I will be the one playing drunken air guitar on the table at a crowded party. But I can listen and be a shoulder to cry on as well.

PHILOSOPHY

We have all been through stuff and it is good to take a minute to imagine walking in another´s shoes before condemning them. I´m not into bitching about people or the world and try to find the good in everyone - except corporations that are raping the world, of course!

Seen a bunch of refugee support projects in Thailand and felt awed by how much the displaced Burmese were maintaining their hope and dignity in the face of major trauma.
