ABOUT ME

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many to sum up but to give a few, The Name of the Wind is one of the most magical books I've ever read. I love listening to Nick Drake and the Fleet Foxes.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the most amazing things I've done is spending a week in the Amazon. With my boyfriend and his uncle Paulo, who started Greenpeace in Brazil. We went on a boat trip trough the Amazon river to get to a very beautiful and basic house on a little desert island. There we spent the week with some friends making music, telling stories and exploring nature. It was very back to basic without electricity or a warm shower. It was so nice and relaxing and the natural surrounding was absolutely amazing! Listening to Paulo's stories about his work for Greenpeace was so interesting and inspiring. I recommend everyone who's on a holiday in Brazil to stay in the Amazon for a few days!
