I am born and raised in Bergen in Norway and I have travelled a lot both inside Norway and the rest of the world. I have a master's degree in social anthropology with a focus on the relationship between tourists and the local population at tourist destinations.
I am very found of exploring the cultural and historical diversity of the world, but also within Norway. There is so much to see and discover in Norway like the unique nature and culture. Travelling responsible and ethically is the best way to discover the wonders of the world and also bring something back to the community you are visiting.

How did you get involved in travel?
"I have always loved travelling and I wanted to study the impact of tourism on local culture. After both travelling myself and studying travel I wanted to be involved in the travel industry and helping people have great travel experiences in a sustainable way. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I lived in Malta for 6 months when writing my master's degree. Getting to know such an exiting culture and the amazing people there over a longer time was really a great experience. The unique blend of cultures and the amazing nature is incredibly interesting to explore. "
