Bicycling

I like to ride my bike and have done many races, including Vättern Runt, a 300 km race around a lake in Sweden.

 Español

My daughter was born in Venezuela so of course we try to speak Spanish as often as we can.  She of course is fluent and doesn't have an accent whereas I have spent most of my adult life trying to achieve something even close to that.

Entonces, si lo desea, puede escribirme en español, y  trataré de responderle también en este idioma. Para mí sería un placer ya que aumenta mis posibilidades de practicar esta lengua.



Travel

I haven't been to 100 countries yet, but I am seriously working on it so that I can become a full-fledged member of the SwedishClub100.


"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness"  said Mark Twain (American writer, 1835-1910). I therefore drag the above-mentioned daughter with me on as many trips as possible, in the belief that it might turn out to be good for her. Occasionally she even accompanies me willingly.

Aquarium

When not working or travelling,  I like to relax in front of my 170 liter aquarium.  There are some fish in the tank, but my main interest in the hobby nowadays is growing aquatic plants.
