About Me

Hi there!

I have once again decided to take up a life of traveling and meeting new awesome people. The last time I did this I hitchhiked through more than 20 countries and spent 14 month's on the road... let's see where it brings me this time :)


I never fail, I just have learning experiences.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


* I have hosted massive pillow fights in places such as Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Istanbul, Singapore and Kolkata.

* I have held lectures about my couchsurfing experiences in high schools.

* I have hosted several potlucks

* I have hosted Murder Mystery dinner events

* I have hosted Salsa events, Friday gatherings, museum nights and loads of "let's meet up for drinks tonight"-events while traveling.

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently reading: "The Power of Now" & "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 Salsa-dancing if you want...

I also recently became a dive instructor so if you want to learn how to dive I could help you with that.

Would be fun to pick up some Spanish.

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... ;)
