I live in Grimstad, town on the south coast of Norway with 15000 inhabitants. But I grew up outside of Reykjavik Iceland, in a small town called Álftanes, 2000 inhabitants at that time. I have been living in Norway for the past 20 years. I am married and we have two boys and one girl.
I am a landscape architect and I work for the engineering company Multiconsult witch is the second biggest engineering company in Norway.
I have a kayak and a boat which I use in the summertime. In wintertime I go cross-country-skiing or snowboarding. I have traveled quite a lot trough the years. One of the best places was Australia and India. The past years I have mostly traveled in Iceland, which is my favorite place. There are many things I like about this island: the open panorama landscape, the bright summer nights, the northern lights in the wintertime, the changing weather, and of course the people. Hospitality is one of the things that I regard highly. I really hope that our guests enjoy their stay and I will do what I can to make it so.
