What hidden talents do you have?
I held the Gotland 100-meter freestyle swim record for more than 15 years.
I sewed dresses for an entire hairdressing salon in Visby in the 80s. I can’t say that they looked great, but they were wonderfully 80s in white and mint green!
What´s the last adventure you went on?
A real adventure was a family trip to South Africa where we spent days far out in the bush with the most animal- and nature-friendly people I ever met. They were truly born and raised with a strong connection to nature and generously shared their knowledge of the amazing wildlife. We were completely alone with the gamer and tracker in an open jeep that took us around every dawn, evening and night.
