I was born in New York City, but came to Denmark in the early 1970's during a break in my graduate studies in anthropology. I never went back, though I often go back to visit. After a career change I became an English teacher at a Danish secondary school from which I retired last year. My husband Leif was also an English teacher and our apartment is full of English-language novels and other books. Though we're no longer teaching, we still do a lot of freelance work, among other things, translating from Danish and Norwegian into English.

We love to cook!

We love theater, film and art, and our apartment is full of Leif's art work.

We spend a lot of time with our grandchildren, but we also like to travel in Europe and the US. We've been to the Middle East and South Africa, but there's a lot waiting for us out there.

It's important for us that our airbnb guests feel comfortable in our home. I am actually slightly addicted to 'pleasing' my guests. Hope you give us a try.
