I like frozen water, too.

I travel with my family (mom, dad, sister and her husband and their two kids) and my husband for holiday fun and sun.

I travel with my husband Henrik, architect and fellow photography enthusiast, to study fitness, wellness, nature, art and architecture.

I travel with colleagues and on my own due to work, lectures and workshops (previously more as a national AER gym coach).

I like petrified water (caves) and other earth stuff, too.

My home and base is in Denmark, Scandinavia, but I enjoy travelling to meet new people and discover new places – and love to learn and share ideas and information.
