My name is Helena and I was born in the northern parts of Sweden. In 1989 I moved to
Stockholm, the beautiful capital city. There I met my dear
Lars. :-) In summer 2004 he got a nice job in
Norway, and we live there now. For how long we don't yet know. We'll see how we like it here.
In 1997, while I was studying Biology/Geology at the University, I built my first website
and drew some graphics for it. It quickly became my favourite hobby. :-) Now I have my
own business and do the graphics full time. Never in my wildest
dreams had I imagined that that would be possible.
Other interests are animals and nature, reading, flowers and gardening. I'm not very sporty, but
enjoy long walks, and cross-country skiing and ice-skating on lakes in winter.
We both enjoy travelling and have visited several countries around the world - USA,
Iceland, Faroe Islands, Spitsbergen, Greece, Italy, Portugal,
France, Germany, Israel, Jordan, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Turkey, Britain,
It's impossible to say which was the best - each country is so different - but some of my
favourite trips were (in no particular order): north-western USA (marvellous
nature/views and friendly people), northern Britain, the northern parts of Portugal (pretty
landscape and friendly people), Norway (incredibly beautiful!), Petra in Jordan, Iceland
(magical) and Italy.
