    Hello traveller!

    I have one supercute dog, Irma, and also I like to travel. So sometimes I need help with just hanging out with my lovely best friend, when I work extra hours or go travelling. Also I really like meeting people from all over the world and learn new skills. Hosting for workaway has been a great way to meet really interesting people and learn from them.
    I live by one of the most stunning fjords in the north of Norway, with perfect surroundings for those who like exploring the mountains and sea. I love all sorts of adventure sports and can give you some really good tips on where to have the best experiences. Now, in autumn/winter is the prime season for seeing the northern lights - the aurora borealis, with amazing nights out just watching the magic sky. I am rather spontaneous and love hiking, kayaking, paragliding, diving and mountain running. But also to just hang out at the apartment and chill. I dont have TV, cause I rather talk, read or listen to music. I'm a very curious person indeed :)

    What else ...

    Nature is close here. One of the best divingspots in the world is only 40 minutes drive (Saltstraumen). Also you have a glacier just 2 hours drive south. The mountains is just around the corner, from 10 min drive to the most spectacular peaks overlooking the sea. Bodø climbing club has many good routes around the town. There are many good downhill trails, both for bikes and running, mountain or forest. There is a stunning archipelago for Kayaking around on the north side of Bodø, that is also the best place for Paragliding. For those with the urge to explore the region, the house is close to the bus stop leading in and out of the town. In the weekends you can go to several of the norwegian cabins, that are open for visitors (I can provide with info).
