About Me

Realized I wasn't able to answer the insane amount of requests I received (hence my response rate dropping from 100% do 80%). Made some changes to my profile and removed a lot of text.
Trying this new approach for now.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

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

I made a guide for Stockholm, see: www.stockholm.pluntky.se

For more info about Stockholm see:

• Wikipedia
• City Visitor Information
• City Information (for living here etc.)
• Public Transport (prices and routes)
• Sweden.se great site about Sweden in general.

Upon arriving in Stockholm I suggest you get an "Access" card for the public transit system. The card is 20 SEK but you will earn this money back if you plan on using public transport more than twice.

A single journey in the city is 44:- if you pay in cash (or 36:- by card at a machine). It's only 25:- if you pay with an Access card. You have to charge it with the minimum charge of 100 SEK before you can an use it.

I know a lot about this cities I've lived in and like to share my knowledge and give personalized 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.

I've hosted 52 people from 26 different countries

Teach, Learn, Share

Ones with interesting and different experiences and are not afraid to share their thoughts and opinions.

If you need some help with your bike I might be able to help you out!

I am trying to move away from social sites (Facebook especially) and so I am making my own website. So if you are good at making websites and feel like helping me I would be ecstatic!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Me, myself and I? I like to cook and would be happy to do it if the circumstances allow =)
