About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To make life an adventure!

ABOUT ME

I dont really know where to begin.
My name is Simon, I was born in Denmark in 1990, but it didn't take long before I wanted to experience more of this beautiful world. I have been to over 30 countries, spanning four continents, but I am far from done with travelling, which is one of the reasons I joined this site. I also hope to make some new friends, and of course I want to help anyone else who is looking for a couch to crash on.
I like to hang out with my friends, go to bars or clubs to drink and meet new people, draw crazy pictures, or just geek out on my computer if I'm by myself.
I currently live in Thailand, where I work as a teacher, but I'm always looking for new adventures.
I look forward to meeting you :)

PHILOSOPHY

In order to determine the meaning of life, we must first define the term itself. Defined as a single purpose of such importance that it justifies the existence of all living things, we are brought to the obvious question: is there even such a meaning of life? If yes, we don't know the nature of this purpose at this point, and until we do, determining this will be the meaning of life. If not, the closest thing to a purpose we can have must be to give life meaning ourselves, which can only be done by seeking out joy anywhere possible, and sharing it with the rest of the world.

In other words: Have fun!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've mostly been surfing in the past, and I've hosted a single surfer once, although I'm afraid I'm not easily able to host these days, due to my own living arrangements.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I heard about it from a friend, and I immediately got interested. I later found out it was much greater than I expected. I have met some really amazing people on here, and we have had some incredible experiences together. So far I have mostly surfed, but I hope to start hosting soon.

Interests

Travelling, friends, partying, drawing, movies, video games, tabletop RPGs, music, animals, meditation, the big questions in life, and so on...

Music, Movies, and Books

I would never finish listing things...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have a lot of amazing stories, meet me if you want to hear them ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

I am working on a project where I collect music from all the country I have visited, and put them into a travel playlist. For all my hosts, I would really appreciate if you could recommend some good music from your country.
I would like to teach you something too, but I'm not very talented, haha

What I Can Share with Hosts

Other than my amazing company?
I've tried offering my hosts things in the past, but so far, they've mostly refused. That being said, buying you dinner and/or drinks is the least I can do.
But as you probably know by now, hosting is it's own reward, I'm sure we will have plenty of fun together, and hopefully we will both gain a friend for life :)
