About Me


To find a couch in New York on 1-8 of June!


Hi, we're a young couple from Reykjavík, Dýrfinna Benita and Ingi Kristján.
Dýrfinna studies art and Ingi is starting three years of graphic design at the Icelandic Arts Academy next fall.

This page is set up out of desperation! We have nowhere to stay in New York, going there this Wednesday! HELP US PLEASE!

We are always fun and nice and polite and respectful, we are also real people, as seen on facebook:

Ingi paints walls, graphics and posters:
Dýrfinna makes all things:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing




Our friends, Loki and his sister Urður have had loads of couch surfers over, mainly from the United States. We've helped them showing their guests around town and hung out with them. They were all really good people so we've had a positive experience from the CouchSurfing network, and this plays out as the main reason for trying it out for ourselves.

UPDATE august 2011:
Dýrfinna hosted Julie Slotnick while Ingi was in Norway


Art & Culture. Graffiti, graphic design, books, movies, philosophy, drinking and loving life.

Dýrfinna likes clothes and fashion and does some amateur modeling.

Music, Movies, and Books

Directors Emir Kusturica , Gregg Araki are favorites. Japanes and KUNG FU. Classics. Extreme 90's. B-movies & cult mostly. Good bad movies. We just love good movies.

Music varies a lot depending on mood, but both of us are involved in reykjavíks heavymetal/hardoce scene, Aka. our friends play in bands and we show up. Listen a lot to pshycadelic sounds, hip hop, inde, alternative, electronic from trip hop to dubstep.

Ingi is a reader of all kinds of stuff from comics to heavy 18th century poets and philosophers. Enjoy childrens books also. Wiiide range. Common sense and nonsene. Dýrfinna is into indie comics and manga but Ingi is all about Vertigo: Preacher, Transmetropolitan etc. also Don Rosa!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Dýrfinna almost drowned in Estonia this one time + she has given Ghostface Killah a high five.

and Ingi fell down a mountain once.

Maybe more clumsy than amazing, but you get the picture.
