Kathy tagged me on this one several months ago, and now I’m finally in the mood for talking about myself 😆

  1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
  2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself (on your blog, we all want to know them).
  3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
  4. Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I’ll have to break the rules here, because I don’t know of 7 bloggers, but when I get to know them, I promise to send this one to them 😆

These are seven random facts about me:

1. I grew up far away from everything – yep, I’m a country bumpkin – but it was a wonderful childhood in Denmark. I had the world’s biggest playground just outside the door, and I did spend much of my childhood climbing trees, playing around, building things.. and I felt really old, or “grown up” that day I was allowed to hand an axe and chop firewood.

2. My hair was white and very thin until I was 3 years old, then it changed.. and from the age of 5, it turned darker and darker.. now I have thick, dark brown hair. I hope I have my grandmother’s (father’s mother) type of hair – she’s 69 and still have dark hair.

3. I started to teach myself English, before we had English lessons in school in 3rd grade – I loved listening to music, and I was annoyed that I didn’t understand the lyrics, so I sat there with my mother’s dictionary trying to understand different lyrics. Lyrics I remember translating, is songs like Supertramp’s “the Logical Song”, and also some Michael Jackson lyrics.

4. I’m not good at jumping or running.. my body is just not built for those kinds of activities. But I am very strong, thinking about my gender – I often beat men in hand wrestling, and I rarely ask for help when moving heavy things. I’m good at hiking, and I can keep walking for hours without getting tired… good for me, because I simply love hiking/walking.

5. I only have one phobia – and that is arachnophobia. And that is in spite of that I come from a country, where spiders are harmless. I don’t know what I should to do in countries, inhabited by venomous spiders! Yuk.. I’ll panic..

6. A weird fact: I can scratch my ears with my feet 🙄

7. I have many goals in life, but one of them is to learn at least 10 languages before I leave this world – Right now I’m fluent in: Danish, English, Faroese, I want to improve my Swedish, Norweigan and German, and I want to learn Spanish, French, Icelandic and Italian. If I happen to learn these languages while I’m still young, I’ll just add some more languages to my “languages to learn”-list 😉

The blog I posted just before, reminded me about something completely different… “please tell me who I am”.. no problem, just visit blogthings.com, and there are no limits of answers on who or what you are!

I learned today, that I’m a soy latté, and I’ve also found out what my inner European is (Irish btw, or if I chage just 1 answer, Swedish), what kind of tea I am, what kind of flower I am, and what eye colour I should have… and best of all, what personality I have. I’ve always wondered about that one… (not)

Who are these people who creates these quizzes? They either have lots of fun creating them, or they must be really bored.

I just have to admit one thing.. I think they are really funny 😆 So don’t be surprised when I post these blogthings now and then… like this one:

You Are a Ham Sandwich

You are quiet, understated, and a great comfort to all of your friends.
Over time, you have proven yourself as loyal and steadfast.
And you are by no means boring. You do well in any situation – from fancy to laid back.Your best friend: The Turkey SandwichYour mortal enemy: The Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I was cleaning up, and found an old piece of paper – I had written a top ten list of countries to visit. It was a bit funny, because I have visited some of the countries on that list since I wrote it. But it gave me inspiration to write a new one… the question is; should I include those countries I already have visited, or should I write some new destinations? I mean, I’ve always dreamt of visiting Iceland, and now I’ve been there – because my plane couldn’t land in the Faroes. Does those hours in Iceland count? I don’t think so 😉 Anyway – the list of countries is the same – here goes:

– Canada
– Iceland
– Ireland
– Scotland
– England
– New Zealand
– Australia
– Italy
– India

And here is a bit about why I’m dreaming of these places. Some may have noticed one thing all of them have in common: beautiful landscapes and they all have coastlines. And those of you who know me well, know that I love hiking, sailing, kayaking, fishing.. anything that has something to do with nature and beautiful sceneries. I’d like to say a few words about some of them…

Theres one major problem with Canada and the USA – they’re freaking big! Where to start? What to see? It would take at least two or three weeks to zip around, and see just some of it! But again – mountains, lakes, forests… and awesome fishing spots.. Canada has it all. One big dream is to go kayaking somewhere.. and now I have to stop writing, or I forget everything about this blog, and purcase tickets instead!

Before I met my boyfriend, I was sitting with some important papers – if I signed them, and sent them, I would have ended up at a university in Iceland, and I would live there for 6 months maybe more. The rough nature, volcanoes, geysers (is that the right word in English? lol!), mountains, glaciers.. But then – while considering all that – I met this incredible, warm hearted Faroese man, who grabbed my hands and my heart, asking me to be his woman. Soo I chose to study him instead, and that was one of the better choices I made. But I still havn’t been to Iceland for a vacation.

Ireland has always fascinated me – incredible landscape (and people, I’ve heard). Some people say, that the Faroe Islands and Ireland are similar to each other.. grass covered basalt cliffs, and all that.. Which reminds me; the first inhabitants in the Faroe Islands were Irish! So my boyfriend may even have Irish blood in him, lol. I’m going to Ireland next summer, to meet a fellow Hodgson fan Mick.. what can I say? I simply can’t wait!!

Take a jumbo cross the water… yes I’d like to see America. But again… where to begin? Give me three months off work, and I’ll travel around the states and have lots of fun. The trip could begin in Ohio, since some of my relatives lives there. And then I’ll have to meet all my internet friends, that I’ve met over the years 😀

I found this blogthing, and I must say it’s true what it says.. even though I travel for adventure, not to relax all the time. 😉

Your Travel Personality Is: Easygoing

When you travel, you’re looking for a lot of downtime. Vacations are your chance to recoup.
All you need is a scenic spot and plenty of time on your hands. You’ll figure out the rest.
You’re not one to make lots of plans when you travel. You just follow whatever path seems right.
