About Cathrine...

I like to walk in the forest, pick berries,listen to the birds, look at the beauty of nature. And I do love everything related to the sea and nature in general; wild life, the "power of nature" (high waves, lightning, fog, rainbows for instance), the ocean, (costal) landscape, lightouses.... I'm also fascinated by the space (polar lights, planets, stars etc), and what's beneath our feet (stones, minerals, fossiles...)
I do also love animals! My favourite animals are weird, unusual, ugly or beautiful (sea) creatures, hedgehogs, foxes, lynxes, tigers, squirrels, owls, puffins, jelly fishes and fishes!
One thing I really like about Norway the shifting seasons. It's hard to choose one favourite season. I like the spring flowers, the warm summer days, the autumn/fall colours, the apples in the garden and berries in the forest, the snow in the winter and the Christmas lights, decorations and snow lanterns etc.
I enjoy reading, and I especially like to read fantasy/fiction, historical books and books about animals. I'm also interested in myths, legends and fairy tales. If I find an interesting book, especially if it's on sale, I tend to buy it. I have too may unread books!
I do also like knitting and crocheting. I have plenty of yarn; can't stop buying it!
When travelling somewhere, I like to visit museums (not art museums, they are boring), zoos and aquariums. And just walk around in the cities, towns or in the nature, to see the place. I'm not staying on the beach the entire day, although a short swim is nice. I rather learn about the place I visit; culture, history, local food etc! I like learning about new places!
I'm fascinated by crafts; wood carving, glass blowing, blacksmith's work etc. I like to visit the local glassworks and see the glass blowers work!

I do also do various voluntary work. A nice way to meet people and do something good for others. Here's what I do:
+ Red Cross; Homework support, Childrens Red Cross and gatherings for elderly people living at home, baking Christmas cakes for sale etc.
+ Veien Kulturminnepark (Veien Cultural Heritage Park); Showing how to do Iron Age crafts at the museum. I'm a member if the local Iron Age Ring, where we learn about crafts from the Iron Age, and show it to others.
+ Zooniverse; I do participate different scientific projects on this website, like Bash The Bug, Penguin Watch and Galaxy Zoo.
+ I do also knit for several charity projects.

The message on the postcard is important to me. I love reading long messages on the postcards I receive (as long as a postcard allows!). If you don't know what to write, you might get some ideas here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NqzirqIpr2dqi-tpyKQunSVJsKAniKgeJVaK_2WHcec/edit?usp=sharing
