About Me

If you want to stay at my place, please look at my "home" description (;

For me, couchsurfing is about travelling to know other cultures and get new friends from all over the world. I like to get a bit more inside a country when I travel, seeing it from the point of view the inhabitants does. I'd like to go out and grab a drink with you, get familiar with the local culture and sights, cook for you, or just hang around and let you show me the best parts of your world. I will do the same, if you should come to Copenhagen, the city I've been living in for my whole life.

I found this description of me from a blog of two awesome american girls that I volunteered and travelled with in Morocco:

'Joachim came late on a stormy night, and having heard only that we expected a lone male from Denmark, I imagined that any minute now a tall, blonde, bearded viking would be pounding at the door. He was tall and blonde, but with a smooth, pink face, and bright eyes. With his Scandinavian looks, he immediately stood out everywhere we went, but his sweet, easygoing demeanor soon dispelled the intimidation factor. Despite his formidable height, he was only twenty, and like us, had taken a gap year before university. As I got to know him, he became younger in my eyes, and soon I could easily relate to him as an equal, though his chiseled features and stylish apparel put him at least in his mid-twenties at first. Like the rest of our group, he was always easygoing. He immediately inspired affection, was quick to laugh, and was a ridiculously easy target for Morocco's hustlers.'

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have surfed in cities around the US, Asia, South America and Europe and I have also hosted a couple of times here in cph - every time a great experience.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One thing was the time i hitchhiked with my good friends from Copenhagen to Amsterdam and Berlin. It were some really nice trips, fun to meet so many different people on the road.

I studied abroad in Madrid, and travelled the world in general. But it's always amazing to meet and spend good times with people, from your own country or the other side of the world it's not the big difference.

Teach, Learn, Share

I will teach and share whatever I can, and I'm open to whatever there is to learn!
Ahh, that was very specific

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good company and plenty of laughs, conversations in danish, english, spanish... And of course knowledge about Copenhagen and danish stuff in general I guess.

I can also share food with you if you dare taste it!
