The Perfect Life

Kajsa

I decided not to shoot any portraits on my visit to the Agricultural College as there was so much else to focus on, but when I spotted Kajsa I changed my mind. I met her as the open house weekend was closing for the day. She turned out to be from Västerhaninge. She is a sailer, or a mariner if you like. Employed by the Waxholmsbolaget, the ferry company that runs the archipelago traffic in Stockholm. She works there six months of the year. The rest of the year she either studies, travels the world, or goes on two months long sailing trips. She's been all over the world, and when I asked Kajsa for a favorite place she picked Central America, with Panama and Costa Rica as two favorite spots. Seems like a perfect way to live your life.

I am very happy that you changed your mind, the results are very good. Lovely girl, not to say more, and interesting (read enviable) way of life.

Aha! Where's her feet? I knew it!

I agree. Studying or travelling half the year and working half the year sounds like a good way to make use of our distinct seasons.

How nice that she picked Costa Rica as one of her favorites.
