I am a traveller. I love new places and activities and when i travel i try to get into the heart of the local culture, meet local people and share their way of living. This is what I want to offer to my guests with this experience. I left teaching IT technology 2 years ago and moved to Gothenburg which i love. The architektur of churches and the organ music are big interest to me. I have the honor of volunteering in one of the Protestant churches of Gothenburg and the privilege of having friends some of the best organists of Sweden.
coffee and swedish cookies. It is the swedish "Fika" tradition.
