About Me

I try to make a good and rewarding life, see my old profile for more details: https://www.couchsurfing.com/users/2532415/profile/legacy

I think it's fun to keep track of where I've been, here's where I've flown:

I prefer your request to be from one hour to fourteen days prior to your arrival. I will be most likely to accept a request for Saturday to Sunday/Monday, as I'm usually busy at work from Monday/Tuesday to Saturday. Generally, the fewer nights, the higher chance I will accept. Thursday to Saturday is rarely accepted, unless national holidays.
These are not specific rules, only recommendations for your courtesy.

Former hosts, friends and former surfers, please feel free to send a request as a message, regardless of my couch-availability-status. Write me if you come to Copenhagen.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To have different experiences. It gives me the opportunity to stay at more rural areas when I travel and live with local people, which is a better way to experience a culture. That is what I find the most interesting about a country.

I also enjoy to host, as this broaden my horizon with great people from different cultures.

I have surfed at 22 people for a total of 48 nights; and hosted 41 people for a total of 114 nights (07/25-2016). I'm happy for those experiences.


Chess, football and long walks while listening to music. I spend a lot of time taking a walk at home in Copenhagen, and when I travel I also like to discover a new city by foot.
