About Me


To be more brave


Easygoing sometimes, shy others. Trying to learn more about myself, trying to listen and take space at the same time.

I am vegetarian.

I just fell in love with nature (again).

-> At the moment more than half way through 4 months traveling, been to Hong Kong for a week and New Zealand 2,5 months (hitch-hiking and tramping and camping my way around) and now heading to Singapore and Malaysia. www.paandrasidanjorden.tumblr.com


So many things i want to write here. It would be all to long so instead I will only say a few things:

- There is no neutral
- Solidarity.
- Queerfeminism
- Respect nature

If this doesn't make sense you can simply ask me when we meet. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing




Surfing in Iceland, India and around Europe. Hosting in Gothenburg.


Spending time with friends is the best. At the moment this mostly involves to play board-games or dance in the forest until dawn.

I love to learn. Sadly, i lost the relentlessness of my curiosity lately, but when others have a nerdy interest about somtehing it glimpses back and i get happy. I want to learn about everything. From understanding what capitalism really is to knowing maths or how to fix a bicycle or what makes plants grow or cool feminist writers or what rainbows are made of. Mostly i want to know what makes people who they are.

- Photography (www.flickr.com/droppe)
- Dancing (in the kitchen, forest, club, alone, togehter, whatever)
- Being in nature (In the archipielago of the swedish west coast, close to home. In the mountains in the north of Sweden, where i lived the last three months)
- Society/left-wing politics (studying sociology and economic history at university, almost/sometimes participating in the gothenburg activist scene)

Music, Movies, and Books

I like a lot.

eg. The books about Momintrollet by Tove Jansson.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Paragliding high up into the inside of a cloud. It was like being in total darkness, but white and fluffy. And without standing on the ground. You know like those movies when someone died and end up in limbo? Like that.

Teach, Learn, Share

love to.

Even though i don't want to I might get stuck in a swedish/western mindset -please tell me if so.
