bridging the gap between my abilities and my dreams
Born and raised in a suburb of Copenhagen, but spend the most of my last 10 years in Copenhagen. A wonderful city, if you are considering visiting :)
About me: I like to think of my self as open minded, humorous, laidback and serious.
Not much, but I like this Mark Twain quote:
"It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog"
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
As I have recently moved to Berlin, our apartment is close to empty. Which I am working on, but for now, I have to stick with a cup of coffee, a drink or a night out.
A night in Reims, three nights in Pisa, two nights in Florence and two nights in Grodno so far. All of which were very pleasant experiences.
Running (Barefoot/Fivefingers), Reading both fiction and non-fiction, Classic Movies, Music, Culture, Languages, History.
Music, Movies, and Books
Authors: Brett Easton Ellis, George Orwell, Conn Igulden, George R. R. Martin, Chuck Palahnuik, Stanislaw Lem, Franz Kafka, Philip K. Dick, Stefan Zweig
Movies: Casablanca, 12 Angry Men, Stanley Kubrick, Orson Welles, Fritz Lang, Alfred Hitchcock, René Laloux, Two first Godfather movies, Holy Mountain, El Topo, Amelie, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill 1+2, American Beauty, Moon, and a lot more.
It would probably suffice to say, that I believe there are good music within all genres. But here is an excerpt of what I like listening to:
Music: most sorts of electronic dance music from Italo Disco and House to Berlin Techno, New Wave, Neue Deutsche Welle, and most things in Russian
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Not anything really amazing: But I have run three Marathons in decent times, and I did learn very decent semi fluent French in half a year, which I am sort of proud of. And my german is really improving at the moment. Other than that my three week visit to South Africa, really put a lot of things in to perspective and have got me thinking.
Teach, Learn, Share
If you should be one of the few who have an interest in learning Danish, I am here for you.
And I could probably teach the techniques of barefoot running and explain all of its advantages.
