About Me


Reclaiming myself


Discover it yourself.


Not ready to formulate this.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


None in this manner. In my youth though, I let various people in - friends who wanted out from their families, french travelling hippies, norwegian drug-addicts with no place to live.

My own coach experiences were mostly in Holland. Once with English people getting into heroin in a very dirty appartment. I cleaned their extremely greasy kitchen in return for their hospitality.


Truthfullness. Life. Gardening. Cats. Psychology. Society. Childhood. Power mechanisms. The things not said, but expressed. Beauty. Comfort. Good food. Wine. Water. Movies. Stories. Lies.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: CS Lewis, "Cosmic Trilogy". Marie Cardinal. The 9th step (was that the title?). Marilyn French. Harry Potter. Tolstoj.

Music: living, organic music. In youth: Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Queen, Pink Floyd, Mozart, Beethoven, Russian ensembles. Still like them. Gloria Gaynor, Tina Turner. Later: Gospel, Leonard Cohen, Bruckner, jazz. Greek music. Turkish dancing music. Tavli. Singing. And much more.

Movies? A danish one called "Festen" is absolutely unforgettable. The late "Golden Compass", Star Wars, is all that comes to mind now.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have an ability in listening - hearing, understanding and seeing a person. I know somewhat about plants and cooking.

I would like to learn about interior decorating, to make things beautiful and practical. A skilled historian who could tell about long lines of this planets history would be appreciated. Exchange opinions on life on Earth, family-life, childhood,cooking, experiences, culture. Anecdotes from real life appreciated.
