About Me


Do good things for the world and write songs about it, and build libraries in poor villages in Tanzania.


I am a singer, songwriter, saw player, social worker and elected politician in the local city council. I want to develop and improve living conditions for people and communities though social work and politics and music.
This is my music: http://soundcloud.com/thebeesniece/sets/i-dont-speak-cat/ and you can find more on youtube (search for Ragnhild Zeigler or The Bee's Niece)


Life is unpredictable, eat the dessert first!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I do not have a place of my own at the moment and not able to host. Some time in the future I will buy a farm house far out in the country side and make a refuge for artists and alternative people tired of city life's demands.


I have met such amazing people through couch surfing. For me it is now the only way to travel:)


Music is a big thing in my life. I also love good food, hiking in the mountains and I love to learn new languages and travel and have interesting conversations with interesting people.
I love politics and social work and I want to change the world for the better.

Music, Movies, and Books

All songs by Tom Waits, books by Paulo Coelho and Knut Hamsund, movies by Jim Jarmush and Quentin Tarantino + farenheit 9/11, bowling for Columbine, Lord of the rings, Amelie, cinema paradiso, chocloate, Charlie and the chocolate factory, Harry Potter, anything by Philip Pullman and Erlend Loe. I also really enjoy reading factual books and biographies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

saw Tom Waits in Dublin - best concert ever!
Stayed 4 days in the Amazon rain forest in Ecuador. It was the most amazing experience of my life! But also living in a mud hut in a poor village in Tanzania really put things in perspective for me.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach norwegian and saw playing, share experiences and views on life, and I want to learn more about other cultures so I get a better understanding of the world and its people.
