About Me


To spend (at least) the year 2014 by combining working and travelling, staying out of my comfort zone to learn new things about my self, stay open for cool people and improve my foreign language skills... And enjoy of course: D


After finishing school I could finally release my inner traveler and start to properly explore this beautiful planet in my wonderful woolen socks... I'm just a bit nerdy when it comes to studying languages - but it is alright. I love to wander and relax out there while enjoying the nature. One of my passions is to design and make clothes but it is really hard to combine this and simple lifestyle... I've started be more and more into cooking now that I've been living on my own and I just can't wait to try out couple of new recipes... I love sports and being in the nature - I really want to get better at skiing and climbing...


Still working on that...

Music, Movies, and Books

I know something about other things but not a lot about movies... : ) Hayao Miyazaki is my favorite director...
Atm I'm trying to find new bands singing in Swedish or German - it's a nice feeling when you actually get (some of) the lyrics...
I love reading... It's a wonderfully terrible feeling when you need to wait till the next book of you current favorite series comes out... But in the the end it's so worth it: )

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have ice climbed in the Swiss alps, river rafted in a glacier river in Iceland, slept under the stars, seen tumbleweed, knitted a woolen sweater...
