My 'cv'

I taught chemistry and biology for 12 years, before working for the UN Association of Sweden - for another 8 years. Since 1999 until 2017 I worked for the International Union of Tenants, IUT, with issues concerning tenant’s and housing rights.

I have lived in Stockholm since the mid 1970´s – in most districts.

I usually use my bicycle in the city.


And of course, I walk! In the city, but I also go for longer walks, together with friends. This spring, 2019, the six of us will walk for ten days in Greece. We have also walked in France, Porugak, Spain, Italy and in Turkey. Need tips and ideas - ask me!


Stockholm, with an archipelago of some 25 000 islands, is great for sailing.  So I share a sailing yacht with a friend.


My philosophy:

- I have experienced that walking and sailing have much in common. It’s not the destination that is most important – it’s the route to the destination that provides the experience and well-being.

- Try to travel without too many 'must do’s'.

- Try not to plan too much ahead. Leave room for unexpected experiences and meetings with the locals or/and other 'slow' tourists.

- Sometimes travelling without too much pocket money, on buses, by foot or by train, provides great opportunities to meet the locals.

- Avoid all-inclusives!

- Challenge yourself, and make a trip on your own - and you will for sure meet and connect with the locals and other travellers. And there is often a spare bed for a single traveller - if necessary.
