About Connie Krug
In 2010, we moved from a tiny hamlet outside Stellenbosch, in the Winelands of South Africa, to the countryside of the department des Yvelines, in the Ile-de-France. Now we live halfway between Paris and Chartres, and the Chemin St Jacques runs right past our house. The household includes myself, my husband, my daughter, two dogs (once three) and three cats.
I am a field ecologist turned science coordinator, with a deep love for the variety of life around me. I am particularly fond of mice and shrews, having most of my research life dedicated to them, but I in some kind of idiosyncrasy, I also adore cats. That they catch mice is a minor problem – they help me keep track of the species and population densities of rodents around me 😉
My spare time is mostly spent with knitting and organic vegetable gardening. I also do cook and bake – and try and teach my daughter all those skills. I have to travel quite a bit around the world, and by now know how to find a yarn shop in any city.
