HOBBIES/INTERESTS:

SUSAN HATED LITERATURE. SHE'D MUCH PREFER TO READ A GOOD BOOK

(Terry Pratchett, "Soul Music")

I read a lot. These days mostly Crime, SciFi, Fantasy (with age I have become a bit more selective and do not read absolutely everything in these genres). I am a great fan of Terry Pratchett's work and similar humoristic and creative literature, but honestly, I read almost anything from German "Alpenkrimi" and comics to Goethe and Shakespeare depending on the circumstances and how much time I have for reading. My preferred tools are my Kindle and my phone with audio books... My permanent recommendations for anyone are Good Omens by Pratchett/Gaiman and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy! But you should also read books like "The World of Yesterday" by Stefan Zweig, "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood, "Shantaram" by Gregory D. Roberts, Asterix and anything else you might like! 

BE PREPARED

I have been in Scouting since I was about 8 years old and am now a Scout Leader (Akela for Cub Scouts) in Gjøvik, Norway.Over the years I have been a scout and/or a leader in Oslo, Lakselv and Gjøvik in Norway, in Austria (St. Georg Graz 3) and in the USA (Troop 3 Milton, MA). Presently I am  part of Gjøvik Scoutgroup, an old group going back all the way to 1916, and in addition I occasionally participate as staff on Leader Training Courses.

BREATHE IN, BREATHE OUT, REPEAT AS NECESSARY

I enjoy scuba diving, both in cold and warm waters, but don't have time to do it often enough. I am a CMAS *** Diver as well as a PADI Master Scuba Diver, my offspring is a PADI Divemaster, we have been diving together since he was 12.

YOU NEVER LOSE, YOU ALWAYS LEARN

Otherwise I am a fan of martial arts and Asian culture. I started with Karate when I was around 15 and practising off and on until around 1990 (Shukokai and later Shotokan, leaving it with a brown belt 3rd Kyu), later I did Judo for many years, culminating in a 1. dan black belt December 2012, but now the club has "died", the last years we only meet once in a while and my skills as well as my belt have rusted fast :-) So instead I have started a "new career" with Tae Kwon Do (Mudo Gjøvik) achieving the black belt 1. dan in June 2018 (Kukkiwon/Mudo). I have also begun training Aikido at Jishukan Aikidoklubb at Mudo Gjøvik.
