About Me

I never fail, I just have learning experiences.

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently reading: "The Power of Now" and “A new earth" by Eckart Tolle and "The little prince" by Antoine de Saint Exupéry

I also like fantasy such as David Eddings or Terry Pratchett and I do have all the books on James Bond by Ian Flemming in my book-shelf...

Music : Pretty much everything, but lately I have got a thing for the 50's and 60's :-)

Movies: Everything except horror movies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing a reindeer "talking" to my father in the middle of the night when we where out hiking on a mountain... my father was snoring and the reindeer that stood outside our tent thought he was talking to him so he responded, this continued for several minutes :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

I could probably teach you some Salsa-dancing if you want.

I also have loads of travel stories to share and also some hints on how to live in a communal setting if you are interested in that (have been running a collective house in Stockholm since 2010 so have some experience by now ;)

I enjoy Vipassana meditation and try to do it for at least a few minutes every day, would love to share some insights regarding that as well if you are interested!

Would be fun to pick up some Spanish, but also just a good conversation and some laughter.

Share then? Well, I am licensed in Thai massage (both Oil and traditional) and have also taken courses in Thai accupressure (healing 51 different ailments through pressuring on points on the body)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am more than happy to do your dishes, give you a massage or just tell a lot of stories about my travels.

I am also a pretty good listener and generally love meeting new people... quite a few people have described me as a person who changed their life (hopefully they meant that in a positive way... ;)
