About Me


Hello there,
I am a married woman and have 2 adult children; they live at home as they both are studying. I am interested in a lot of things like nature,politics,pets,reading a good book and a good conversation. I love to travel,mostly in Europe and my favourit country is Sweden. My husband and I are always interested to learn about other countries,their culture and their people.


Always look at the bright side of live. I wish that there was no hunger in the world and no war in the world but that's wishful thinking,I know. And I wish people would be more kind to eachother instead of being selfish.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


For the moment I want to participate in getting to know all about how the CS works and being a member of several groups here will help me,I hope.

Classical music,oldies from the sixties. Some folk music too,like Irish music. I love to read thrillers and Scandinavian authors are the best,well,in my opinian. I'm not such a movie lover but a few movies touched me,like out of Africa and on golden Pond.I love to see a good documentary.
