Meet the Flight Attendant / Marine Biologist / Pre-school teacher.
And she is single ...!

I was born in 1943 in a sailor family on the west coast of Norway. In my childhood I experienced that my three younger brothers after confirmation signed on ships that sailed all over the world. As a girl, I had the same longing to travel, but life at sea was reserved for men. My dream was therefore to fly - to work as an airline hostess, a dream of many girls in the 1950's and -60's, a position then considered highly prestigious, glamorous, exciting, sought-after and for the few. When I finally got my "Green Card", I left promptly for New York City, where I in 1966 was hired as a flight attendant for Overseas National Airways. In 1968 I married a Norwegian, gave birth to a daughter and left ONA. After two more years in New York I returned to Oslo, to give my daughter a Norwegian upbringing and schooling. In Oslo I received my pre-school teacher diploma, and for the next 20 years I had an absorbing career as a consultant at the Municipal Kindergarten Administration of Oslo. Meanwhile my daughter had finished her Junior College and decided to leave for Hawaii to start her University studies. Aerial view of Coconut Island in Kane‘ohe Bay showing the location of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology and some of the surrounding reefs. In 1995 I felt burnt-out in my job and decided to leave for Hawaii too, where I studied Journalism and Marine Biology at the University of Hawaii. For my Marine Biology paper. I ended up writing a book about Whales and Whaling, based on my father's and grandfather's whaling experience. The book "From Norway to the Icy Waters of Antarctica" was published in Norway in 2000. The book title in Norwegian is FRA Haugesund Til Isodet I Antarktis by Karin H. Evensen Akademisk Fagforlag As ISBN: 82-7868-030-2 copyright 2000 In 2005 I published a historic book about my home town. Since then I have settled in Oslo, working as a kindergarten teacher and writing children's books as well. My grandchildren live in Hawaii, so I shall still be visiting America on a regular basis. I also look forward to meeting former colleagues from ONA! MARY REZNIK IN CALIFORNIA I have kept in contact with ONA F/A Mary(la) Reznik residing in LA, blessed with two college graduating offspring! Contact me via the ONA webring to get Mary´s address!

Sincerely, Karin Baardsen Evensen
