About Me


Being a good mom and a decent human being.


I like making new acquaintances, learning new things and having my perspective on life turned upside down. I guess that's why I love couchsurfing so much!
I consider myself easy to get along with, unless you try to steal my kidneys, or worse- my coffee..
I enjoy all sorts of people, but particularly people with a sense of humor, who can laugh at themselves and don't take life too seriously :)


Live, laugh, love and eat as much squid as you can for $5

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have lived in Oslo for 12 years and partly grew up here, so I know the city fairly well. I'll help you out with where to go, when to go and what to do, as much as I can!


I love this concept. I have met so many interesting and wonderful people, and I wouldn't have missed this experience for the world. It is the only way of travelling, and a great way to meet new friends and get new perspectives on life. Also, having random people stay at your place all the time breaks up the monotony of everyday-life!
Surfing with other people has taught me a lot about what it's like to be a host _and_ a surfer, and I think that experience can benefit my own surfers.


I'm an atheist, a skeptic and a science geek. I love to read, listen to music and podcasts, but I hate sitting still, and am chronically afraid of missing out on life!
I have a plan to get out and do something exciting every day, but it doesn't always pan out.. This summer my plans are to read nice books, hang out with friends, go hiking in the woods and go fishing!

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to a lot of jazz, various electronic music, stoner-rock and other nice rock, and a lot of metal, maybe progressive metal in particular. I also like ska and dub, and virtually anything with a deep bass and drums..
