About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To experience and learn..

ABOUT ME
I live in the Hague, the Netherlands, studying Business and Hotel Management at Hotelschool The Hague. Previously have a bachelor in Archaeology from the University of Oslo. So, as you may guess, my interest spectre is wide ;) I never get bored if you teach me something new, and I'm sure I can share some of my knowledge as well!

As I live at school I won't be able to host, but unless I'm in the middle of exam periods I'd love to meet up for a coffee or a drink!


Facts about me:
- I'm addicted to coffee
- Non-smoker

PHILOSOPHY

It's better to live your life and risk dying young, than dying old without having lived at all...

Interests

- Traveling, of course
- Seeing new places, meeting new people and discovering new cultures
- Learning new languages
- Not being stuck in the same place for too long
- History and archaeology
- Gardening
- Architecture

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This might not be an amazingly unbelievable story, but it touched my heart (and I'm not one for clichés):

The first time I was in Brazil we stayed a few nights at my friend Milton's house in the favela. They had nothing.. The walls were made of hollow bricks and the roof of tin, they had one bedroom, a kitchen and a backyard which also functioned as a bathroom.
Still, Milton and his mom insisted we take the bed and they would sleep on the kitchen floor. The next morning they baked a cake and bought fruit to serve us for breakfast and were the best hosts ever throughout our stay.

They had nothing, still they gave us everything!!
