What most people don’t know about you? That I really don’t like flying, which is kind of a handicap with the travel distance between my offices.
The wildest/weirdest thing you have done? I’m sorry; I will and cannot ever tell.
What is your biggest achievement so far? Easy question; to be a dad.
When was the first time you came to Thailand? I came to Thailand the first time in the early spring of 1996. Its more than 17 years ago, and I was close to 30 years old. This is very strange since I’m just 37 now.
What do you like most and least about living in Thailand? I enjoy the food, lifestyle and friendliness, and I have also got many great friends here, both expats and residents.
I really don’t like jet lag, traffic jams and temperatures above 30.
Where is your favourite weekend getaway in Thailand? I must answer Baan Viscaya in Naklua. It’s my wife’s family getaway; an Norwegian oasis on Wongamat Beach north of Pattaya.
If you become Bangkok Mayor for one day, what will be the first thing you do? Except from the obvious, I would start full expansion of BTS and MRT, and reduce number of Taxis.
Your favourite restaurant(s) in Bangkok? Too hard to decide, and too many to mention. It probably should have been fewer.
The last book you’ve read? The last book I read was The Snowman by Jo Nesbø
Where do you live in 10 years? I will live in my boat in Norway in the summer and somewhere warmer in the winter. ;-)
