Tell us a bit about yourself, Monica:
I’m from Sweden, but moved to England when I was 19. I spent a lot of my childhood outdoors: riding horses, skiing, cycling, walking in the forest. It was often very cold, and it helped toughen me up!
I’ve always travelled a lot, whenever I had the money to. Also done a lot of hiking, cycling, running, kayaking and so on. I like trying new things too — in recent years I have done archery, aikido, and sword fencing among other things. I even have an interest in philosophy too — both Western and Eastern, trying to make use of it in my everyday life – as well as on challenges.
