I'm a man who have been active trough my entire life, always been running in the woods, hiking to mountain tops and camping.
I'm always looking for the next stories to tell around the campfire or at the dinner table.
Now I want to help you write your story about Norway.

How did you get involved in travel?

"I have always been fascinated by the urge to travel, experience new places, enjoy the culture the world has to give, the dreams that comes true, the people we miss and the places we keep coming back to."
