Maren is one of the most beautiful, caregiving, funny and knowledgeable people I know. She is one of my very best friends and we have had amazing fun together for many years now. I have stayed in her house and at her cabin a million times and she always takes care of everyone in her house, providing comfort and will never stop until she's sure everyone is absolutely happy. She is really, really funny and has one of the best laughs in the world. She loves good food and good wine, and has the cutest possible house mate: Oskar the pug! Her interests and knowledge are endless, I'm sure she can talk to anyone about anything because she would be interested in hearing about their life and learning from it. Be careful not to get into a laughing fit with her, or you'll end up laughing for hours and actually working out your abs, and who wants to do that from having fun! Very highly recommended both as host and as guest.
