About Me


Try to enjoy every moment of life and travel as much as possible..


With a restlessness, an impassioned spirit, and a love for the open road I´m an adventurer. I love diving and everything that has with the ocean to do. Im a padi divemaster with a dream of becoming an instructor and one day open my own dive shop in a warm country.

Sign by Danasoft - Get Your Sign


Life is short, break the rules (they were made to be broken)
Forgive quickly, kiss slowly
Love truly, laugh uncontrollably
And never regret anything that made you smile.
The clouds are lined with silver and the glass is half full (though the answers won't be found at the bottom)
Don't sweat the small stuff,
You are who you are meant to be,
Dance as if no one's watching,
Love as if it's all you know,
Dream as if you'll live forever,
Live as if you'll die today"

- James Dean

"A man needs to travel. On his own, not through stories,
images, books or TV. He needs to travel by himself, with his
own eyes and feet, to understand what he is. So that he can
grow his own trees someday, and value them. Know the cold to
enjoy the heat. And the opposite. Experience the distance and
the lack of shelter to feel well under his own ceiling.
A man needs to travel to places he doesn't know to break this
arrogance that makes us see the world as we imagine it, and not
simply like it is or it may be; that makes us teachers and doctors
of what we didn't see, when we should be students, and simply go see."

- Amyr Klink

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Ask me if I can host you, probably I can.. But I´m always up for some crazy fun stuff!!


Met a few guys from Couchsurfing and they recommended me to check it out!

Right now I´m been surfing couches in most of the countris I´ve visited and met up alot of people for partys and other fun stuff! Great experience.


Travelling, fishing, all kinds of sports (Watching, playing, doesent matter) hiking, drinking, the list can be long! I´m very open minded and I always want to try out new stuff.

Music, Movies, and Books

A mixture of everything,

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to Machu Picchu, and it doesent matter how many times you´ve seen it on a photo, it took my breath away!

I went on the shittiest bicykle ever down the worlds most dangerous road in La Paz, Bolivia..

Took some of the most amazing photos on Salar de Uyuni!

I went with a tiny airplane, with a pilot who had a coffe in one hand and a cigarette in the other, to a national park in Venezuela where I had the luck of watching the sunrise over Salto Angel..

I´ve also seen the northern lights a couple of times!!
