I have the honour today of giving you all a sample of my home country, New Zealand. I’ve been living in Scandinavia for 10 years now and only been back in NZ once since I moved here. It might be time for a trip back soon, as home-sickness is pretty strong right now at the end of Winter. It is of course Summer in New Zealand right now, with temperatures around 25C – 30C. Hope you like the pictures :)

I divide my time between being a professional musician, performance coach, and website designer. With Inredningsvis, my work is by and large behind the scenes, but I have published a few "How to" posts, as well as some (previously) top secret recipes!
