Karin grew up in the Stockholm area and spent her studying years in Uppsala, a university town one hour north of Stockholm, before deciding to move back to the capital. She holds an MA in Languages Education and has been teaching English and French in Swedish schools for about 30 years. To improve her language skills and knowledge of different cultures, she spent time working and studying in the UK, France, Switzerland, and the USA. During her years of studies in Uppsala, she also took some time off to work as a tour leader in Brussels, Paris, and on the Channel island of Jersey. More recently, during the summer holidays, she has hosted passengers traveling through the 58 locks of the Göta Canal, a waterway between the two cities of Stockholm and Göteborg, known as “The Blue Ribbon”. Besides her background in linguistics and culture, her interests are music, dance, art and spending time with friends and family. Working as a qualified Stockholm guide constantly gives her plenty of new discoveries and knowledge about her city.
