Från Vestmanna, utsikit mot Vága, 1991.
"I have many interests and I tend to do things in
periods. I have not taken photographs for a long time,
but I still can call it my interest. I like
travelling, different cultures, learning languages
(Iīve studied about 7 different languages, but I can only manage a few). I like dancing, swimming and hiking. When I lived in Sweden I liked skiing, but that I
canīt do in the Faroes. I enjoy nature and I have
fingers" with plants. I like reading and
learning about many different things, I like writing
too, but donīt do very much about it. I am a very
social person, like to meet new people and talk. I
like playing chess, but have no one to play with. I
like corresponding with different people, but donīt
have much time for it. Iīm interested in different
religions. I like cooking vegetarian food and find up
my own recepies......
Of course a big part of my life is the Bahá´í
activities and that takes a lot of my free time.
I think I can go on and on!"
