About Me

After 4 years in Iceland, I've decided it's time for a really big adventure. I booked a one way ticket to Poland, but I have no plans beyond that. Possible destinations include; Ukraine, Georgia, Serbia, Bosnia, Moldova Turkey and Romania. I'd love to meet travelers and locals along the way, so feel free to mail me if we're on the same part of the planet.

I describe myself as a free-spirited, an idealist and a dreamer. I love all things quirky and offbeat. I love imperfections. I am not materialistic. I try to get by with very little and I always travel light.

I don't like to stay in one place for a long time. I like when life is unpredictable. My greatest fear is settling for a mundane or a "normal" life.

Rationality is over-rated, the best things in life are irrational.

I value every moment and every breath I take. I live for the moment and hopefully leave some footprints when I'm gone.


Exploring the world, cycling, skiing, political theory, social justice, my PhD.

I love to find common ground with people who have different backgrounds and worldviews from my own. I believe that everybody can connect on some level.

I hate to confirm stereotypes but I love Guinness

I'm madly in love with my job, a PhD in Disability studies. I enjoy talking about politics and social issues.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: The National, Bob Dylan, The Libertines, The Velvet Underground, Sigur Ros, Janis Joplin, The Beatles, Damien Rice, The Strokes

Movies: City of God, This is England, Shawshank Redemption, Cinema Paridiso, Trainspotting, High Fidelity, Into the Wild, the Motorcycle Diaries, and lots of kids movies from the 90s... Home Alone etc.

Books: I don´t know why but I can´t read fiction, it kind of bothers me cause I´m generally a very imaginative person! I also have a problem finishing books or reading them from beginning to end (in that order).

Books about politics and history. Marx, Chomsky, Tony Benn etc etc etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I ate bread that was baked inside a Volcano in the Westman Islands.
