41 years old – feel much younger, behave much younger, look…..nah….let’s not get into that! I am an energetic, smiling, easy going woman with a constant urge to try new an exiting stuff. I like action and being outdoors, but I also enjoy a deep conversation and reading a good book.I was born and raised in Esbjerg, Denmark but lived in Copenhagen since 1990 and consider Copenhagen my home.
I do not like conventional touristy stuff. I can understand that some people enjoy popular tourist attractions such as Vegas and Disneyland but it’s not likely that you will meet me there. I prefer to get off the beaten track and get a bit of dirt under my nails.
I work for IKEA and love the IKEA culture. The flat organization, the respect for people, the constant desire to change, the “think different philosophy”, the vision. It’s a good place to spend 38 hours of my week.
Normally I enjoy mountain-biking, snowboarding, squash and motorcycling, but everything except motorcycling had to give way to my biggest passion: Roller Derby. I am one of the co-founder of Copenhagen Roller Derby and we have managed to build a large team with powerful women and cool men (referees).
Motorcycling is freedom for me. I love the fact that you use your whole body when you ride a bike. You are extremely flexible and agile on a motorbike, the acceleration is breathtaking and the cold wind, rain or heat makes you feel that you are alive. I like being in control, and driving a motorbike makes me feel very powerful. Going off road multiplies that feeling. Going up a steep hill or riding along a difficult gravel road is adrenalin, fun and excitement.
I don’t like to be a spectator to life. Motorcycling makes me feel I’m living.
43 years old – born in Germany but have lived in Denmark all my life. I live in Copenhagen (Bagsvaerd) and work with IT-Governance in Novo Nordisk A/S as a project- and portfolio manager.
Motorcycles are my big passion. Unfortunately I live in a country where the price level on all motorized vehicles is enormous, due to a 180% tax. If it hadn’t been the case, I’ve probably would have a lot more than is the case. For daily transportation I have a 2003 Honda XRV 750 – “Africa Twin” . Besides the “AT” I also have a 2004 Honda CBR 1100 XX – this bike however I’m selling since I’m much more into the Dual Sport riding now.
I also love the outdoors. As a kid I was in the boy scouts. Later on, I joined the Army (Royal Danish Guards) where I’ve spend 15 years in the army reserve.
For some unknown reason I’ve always been attracted by the idea of living in either Canada or Alaska. Somewhere out in the wild in a big log house. Not that I don’t like having people around me – on the contrary – my hopes for this trip is to meet as many people a possible.
I’ve always been interested in different cultures. In 2006 I had the opportunity to work in China for almost a year. I had a great time and would like to go again if I get the chance.
Networking is another big interest of mine. You’ll be able to find me on a lot of the different soc.networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. Feel free to send me an invite.
Together we are a pretty odd couple, who supplement each other where each of us have shortcomings.
