About Me

From the westcoast, from a city built on herring; Haugesund.
I've yet to go to the Pulpit Rock,
I dream of one day hiking up with couchsurfers, a boomblaster and my bunad :)

Oslo knows me well and I know Oslo well.
I enjoy comic moments, friendliness,
a slow coffeebreak,
singing in groups, big hugs, hiking,
walks by the sea, discoveries,
roadtrips by car or on a motorbike,
a good portion of chocolate, filmfestivals etc.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meeting locals and travelers, through couchsurfing or not, over a cup of coffee or a cartrip, is just great. I think CS is dynamic; always changing, always moving.
I will give you advices and meet you if I can. I am unfortunately not hosting at the moment.I am very happy when I get to meet couchsurfers at meetings etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Singing a duet in a cathedral in Normandy when I was 15.

Stayed and worked alone in the highest-lying and most western lighthouse in Norway for 1 month and explored the peaceful silence. It was a success and his highly recommended. The Lighthouse also has a an Artist in residence - flat. Ask me for more info...

In 2008 we went hiking from Skogar to Thorsmork, (passed Eyafjallajökull) stayed in tents, singing the traditional "Maria, Maria", with bonfire, wool and icelandic traditional food. We then jeeped straight down to an amazing, free concert in a park with Sigur Ros and Björk playing together.

Teach, Learn, Share

Listen. Laugh. Love.
Once I met a 10 year old boy in a small tribal village in Andhra Pradesh, India.
He told me "I really want to go to Tromsø¸ and see the Northern Lights".
Thanks for sharing your dream!
