About Me


Travel around the world and mature and learn from the experience


My name is Berglind but everyone calls me Begga :) I´m born and raised in Iceland, I love my country and traveling around it. My job is perfect because i get to experience it in a new way, I drive a bus and taxi in the summertime but in the wintertime i study psychology in University of Iceland. I don´t smoke or drink but if you do i don´t mind it. When i was 17 i lived in Spain for 2 months learning spanish in language school and when i was 21 i was in Manchester for one month learning better english in a language school. I love traveling around the world, when I was 19 I backpacked around europe with 2 friends for a month.. I loved it :) I would like to travel to every continent before i die.
I love meeting new people.. especially people you can learn something from.
