I am norwegian and moved to Santiago de Compostela in 2003 after living in the USA for 6 years (Pullman, Wa and Fort Collins, CO).

While learning spanish, I started this website as a hobby. Now, many years later the website has taken a life of its own... but I still consider it my hobby. Dreaming of one day running this website as my job.

More about me on my website.

Here are some videos of me. :)

I got a chance to participate in this promotional video. Fun!

Me on “Destino España” (TVE 1), a program about foreigners that have settled down in Spain.

Me on Antena 3 national news in Sain related to my “Camino Travel Center” in Santiago (I no longer run it).
