About Me

There was a lot of outdated information here (Jan-20) so I have deleted it for now. Looking to add some new fresh info soon.

I try to answer every request asap..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hosting whenever I can. Otherwise a free guide with plenty of knowledge. Also help manage a couple of groups.

For more info about Stockholm see:

• Wikipedia
• City Visitor Information
• SL.se - Public Transport (prices and routes)
• Sweden.se great site about Sweden in general.

A single journey in the city is 37:- whether you pay by cash, card or use a top-up card. However you can only use the ACCESS (top-up card) on busses so I suggest getting that.

I know a lot about the cities I've lived in and like to share my knowledge and give personalizsd tips (but please be a bit specific with your requests).

I have also recruited four members to the site so far.
Since I travel by bike I am also on WarmShowers.org

I've hosted 61 people from 29 different countries
