About Me

If you want to request to stay with me, please read "My Home"-section first!

I live in Gothenburg, the front side of Sweden!

I study to become a civil engineer at Chalmers University of Technology and my aim is to learn more about sustainable transportation and to work with it in some way, currently I work as a traffic consultant focused on biking aside of my studies. I do this because I love to travel and discover new places, even if they are just around the corner (or a bike ride away) .

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

During my gap year I biked from Gothenburg south to Berlin, where I mostly stayed with couchsurfers all the way from Kungsbacka to Gransee. This experience enriched my trip in a way I don't think it would've done if I'd only stayed in hostels! So I've continued to use CS as a way of traveling and by beeing a host I can have the experience even when I'm at home.


I love outdoor activites like climbing, biking and hiking, and currently I'm a member of Chalmers Ballong Corps where we go off flying hot air balloons :D
I need to practice regular music activities like playing the piano, making harmonies with the timer in the kitchen, making my own and of course listen to music. I also enjoying reading and writing.

I bike in my every day life and by long distance and also study and work with biking. So I like to bike...
Except for my Gothenburg-Oslo trip I've biked Karlstad-Oslo and along the west coast of Sweden.
