About Me




I enjoy not spending too much time in one place, I get restless very easily. I guess you can say I like change. Change is good.



When the going gets weird, the weird turns pro.

To always have something to look forward to. I really enjoy making plans, but somehow I enjoy it even more when they change unexpectedly. Either way, it is always good to reflect on what you want to do with your time.

Viva la evolución.

Free Burma and Palestine.

How can you conduct a "war against terror" and still support the actions of Israel?

Du må ikke sove.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host when I have somewhere to live and surf when I am backpacking. Only positive experiences so far. To stay with someone local while travelling makes the whole difference, I can't imagine life without CS now.


But there's oh so much. Music is extremely important. I have a habit of documenting my life through photography. I can't live without books. Horsebackriding is hella fun. I wish I could speak a hundred languages. I'm terrible at playing chess, but I still love it. Also there's travelling, historyl, biking, politics, dogs, poetry, documentaries, walking around barefoot in the sun. You know, the usual. And everything else too.

Burning Man is pretty high on my list, I guess.

Teach, Learn, Share

Skill share is great. I can teach you Norwegian. And how to play bridge. Probably other stuff too.

I would love to learn more languages, and in general I really enjoy learning something new, so hit me!
