About Me

Devoted green traveler.

Travel blogger and explorer.

WordPress and GA enthusiast.

Former scientist, now full time web publisher.

I´m a smiling woman with curiosity to all the stuff and people I still don´t know. I like dreams and thoughts, all the people I love spending time with, to meet new people, travelling, to find a new favourite song, impulsiveness, concerts, fresh air, red wine, vegetarian food, nighttime, cats, energykicks, to sleep till I wake up naturally.

I`m a writer and the funder of Taste of Slow - a website about green travel and food culture the vegetarian way.

Philosophy: I believe in the power of YOU!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I host or meet travellers in Oslo when I´m able to, I do my best to answer all requests and messages, I meet CS´ers when I travel, I do my best to answer questions about my city.

I have only good experiences with Couchsurfing, and I have met alot of wonderful people.


I like spending my time with friends, during the summer I love hanging out in the parks or go to the beach to relax and swim. I read books, and also online articles about communication, web publishing and blogging. I love walking, in nature, but also in cities - watching people, drinking coffee and finding new favourite spots. I´m a cityspotter for Spotted by Loals and write articles for their cityguide to Oslo.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to cook vegetarian food, and I can teach you about travel blogging and social media.

I like to listen to people`s stories about their life and their travels.

I share my own experiences, and hopefully we will learn something from eachother - or get inspired with new ideas!
