"Friendship: When You are walking in the footsteps of a stranger;
Be open minded, You might learn something!"

Who am I?

My name is Gunilla; Nilla to my English-speaking friends.
In 1988 I graduated as a Medical Laboratory Technologist (MLT) and moved to Gothenburg, on the westcoast of Sweden, to work at a hospital in my proffesion.

I stayed in Gothenburg until January 2001 when I changed carrier and left Gothenburg for a town called Linköping in the eastern parts of Sweden. I had decided to work full time with a computer software, developed for Clinical BioChemistry Laboratories, called "Flexlab". This was the software that the BioChemistry Labs in Gothenburg switched over to during 1999 and which I worked with a lot during the introduction at the BioChemistry Lab where I worked. So nowdays I am working with "Flexlab" for the IT-company Tieto, but since May 2009 I am as well back in Gothenburg again.

When I am not working I do a lot of running and also other kinds of training.
I also like to do horseback riding when I get a chance (especially on Island-ponies), hiking; I am an outdoor person. I like to work with computers, especially Web-Designing, to write and to work with photos.
Usually I have some kind of project going on.

How it all started?

I went on my first overseas trip in 1984, when I was visiting a friend in Nova Scotia, on the east coast of Canada. After that trip I traveled mostly to different places in Europe. Then in 1990 I went overseas again together with some friends and at that time we went to Hongkong and Australia for 6 weeks. We had a brilliant time.
Since I was child I have been very interested in the culture and history of the North American Indians, the Nature and Wildlife in North America. So in 1992 I went over to Usa with a Swedish travel-company called Swanson's.

Through Swanson's I came in contact with the adventure company TrekAmerica. In 1994 I went on my first Trek with them and after that I was hooked. Until today I have done 7 Treks.

My first Trek.

That first evening on my first Trek I was extreamly nervous to meet all these strange people from all over the world, and not to forget that I had to speak English all the time. Phuuu!!!! I was the only Swede in the group as I have been on the following Treks as well so it was a bit difficult at first to understand all these strange accent´s but pretty soon I got used to it and I believe I have learned a great deal of new words and not beeing afraid to speak. Nowdays it doesn't bother me at all.

The best thing about these Treks is that I have made friends, from all of the world, possible for the rest of my life. The people from the Rocky Mountaineer Trek in 1995 were the group that were just made for each other.
Since 1995 we have had an yearly reunion in our different countrie's and I believe we are quite uniqe in that matter. So believe me when I tell You it is a great way of travelling, especially if You're travelling by Yourself.

I will to tell You a lot more about my Treks in 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998 and 1999.
So my friends, there is a lot more to come. Info and photos. So lets hit the road shall we?
