About Me

CURRENT MISSION

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

ABOUT ME

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)

PHILOSOPHY

Life is unpredictable, eat the dessert first!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN 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.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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

Interests

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.

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.
