Anna Håkansson is a former teacher in history and languages, with an additional special interest in art. Although she started her career in tourism by working at the Tourist Office in Stockholm back in the early '90s, today she works as a qualified tourist guide in her beautiful hometown of Stockholm. She also does tours in the Swedish parliament, where she interacts with a mixed bundle of international/national state officials and pupils from Sweden. In her spare time, Anna works with a Swedish public authority, The Living History Forum, which is commissioned to work with issues related to tolerance, democracy and human rights. She has also studied abroad and is fluent in English and Spanish. Anna lives with her partner, a musican, and their two sons on one of the 14 islands that the inner circle of Stockholm is built on.
Lars is himself a world traveler, but Södermalm in Stockholm is where he feels most at home. He has a passion for Stockholm’s history but very much up-to-date with the city of today. With a love of food, he is sure to know where the best chefs have their restaurants. And as a trained ranger (in South Africa) Lars is also sure to know the city’s parks, flora and fauna.
