About Skandinavisk[edit]

My real name is Jon Behring

This is probably going to be a bit dry, but you probably want to know who I am, and if I really know what I've written. Thus this is going to be a bit like a CV.

I'm a norwegian currently live in Tromsø. However, untill 2018 I lived in Malmö, and worked in Copenhagen, comuting every day by train or car. Before moving to Malmø I lived and worked in Bergen, and before that I lived in Trondheim. I grew up outside Oslo in a town called Lillestrøm.

For those of you who knew I was jonkb. I'm currently looking for another website to replace it.

Language I speak[edit]

My native tongue is Norwegian, but I also speak

  • Swedish (see footnote)
  • Danish (see footnote)
  • English
  • German

Footnote: I actually taken lessons and used the languages, not just understanding the languages because I speak Norwegian

About My name[edit]

Skandinavisk is Scandinavian for Scandinavian. I'm also on other travel related sites sjuch as

  • Travellerspoint (Skandinavisk)
  • Virtualtourist (no longer an active site, I was jonkb)
  • Travbuddy (TrueScandinavian)

I try to stay away from Tripadvisor, because of their behavior towards VirtualTourist, but I am a member (TrueScandinavian)

Contact posibillities[edit]

You can contact me via E-mail: [email protected] If you want my adress or phone number, you'll have to email me first.

Places I visit often[edit]

Copenhagen and Malmö: I still have a lot of friends there, and I try to visit them. Most of my family live in Oslo

Places I've visited for work often but no longer visit.[edit]

Workrelated trips were often to Brussels (2007-2017), or Vienna (2007-2017), for international meetings. We also travelled to Torshavn (2012-2014), and Nuuk (2012-2017) for setting up our services, We had services in Haderslev (2007-2017), Bornholm (2007-2017), Thisted (2007-2017), Næstved (2007-2017), Hundested (2007-2017), Aalborg (2007-2017), Grenå (2007-2017), Møn (2007-2017), Nykøbing (2007-2017), Herning (2007-2017), Aasiaat (2012-2017) and Qaqortoq (2012-2017), and thus travelled there almost every year. Kristianstad is a place I visited quite often while I lived in Malmö, because I was a member of an organization that have a local headquarter there.
