  • Description


    My name is Cristinel, I am a free spirit, with a stable character, father (my great 3 years old son will come by, usually 2-3 times a week), honest, peaceful and open-minded (hope that's what people say as well :D).

    I like being spontaneous, charismatic and following my heart. I'm not an everyday party person, I rather enjoy quiet and relaxed places. However, this doesn't mean that a dislike parties :P.

    ***Update: I am a bit in pain sometimes, I have a compressed nerve under shoulder blade and this is quite a hard one to handle. So you have massage skills, please mention it in you mail! :} ***

    -This summer looks like I am taking over a Permaculture garden, and since I am also studying Norwegian language at same time
    (my 3 years old son is starting to speak Norwegian with me now, time to learn this language :) !), so I will need some help,
    mainly with planting and gardening.

    My passions are:
    - Geography;
    - Traveling;
    - Alternative Medicine (medicinal plants);
    - Nutrition;
    - Wildlife & Wild Food;
    ...And always looking out for new and interesting experiences!!

    Some words from my `home made` bible:

    *Everybody is great or it can become.
    *Love the people around you not because they deserve it, love them because they need it, same as you do.
    *Your future self is watching you right now. Make it interesting.
    *Every day matters.
    *Guard your thoughts, they become words.
    Choose your words, they become actions.
    Understand your actions, they become habits.
    Study your habits, they mould your character &
    it will be your fate.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here is a good place to be if you feel keen for Permaculture. I will also make sure you have a taste of wilderness from around and some nordic culture. Hiking and camping, dinner made over camping fire fed with stories, jokes and philosophy in beautiful places. Those are things I like often sharing with others . There will also be little gatherings (events) for working in the garden with friends from around Oslo, so it can be a good opportunity for you to meet more people with same interest.
