About Me

ABOUT ME

Erik here!

I just moved to ր“rebro a couple of months back to study Human Resource Management at the University of Örebro. Seems to be a beautiful city.

I'm open for different kinds of cs activities and of course always up for a drink! ;)

I want to see myself as a honest person, therefore I am not that kind of person that holds back his feelings and I enjoy being open and saying what's really on my mind.

PHILOSOPHY

"The world is like an open book. If you don't travel, you've read but only one page..."

"You will miss 100% of all the shots you do not shoot"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

First time couchsurfing were in 2009 were me and my ex-
girlfriend were backpacking through Europe by train for a months time. This was going to open up a new door for me and I was very surprised of the friendliness of people offering us a place to stay.

Also during that travel I came in sight of Barcelona for the first time, which was going to be one my favourite cities of the world... and a lifestyle and culture that has formed my personality into who I am today.

Where in 2010 I moved to Barcelona with just a little knowledge of the languange (catalan and spanish). I made a living by working at IKEA doing HR admin work. I started to participate in language classes and diffrente events. During this time I came to meet a lot of good friends, that still today are in my heart. When looking back now, after living there for more than a years time I sit here with big silly smile upon my face, thinking about the opertunities that CS has opened up for me =)

Interests

I LOVE to try new things out! Wether it's to try new activities, sports, or eat new food, I believe that you'll gain a valuable experience in everything you do in life.

Food might very well be on the biggest interest I have. I mean, as we all need food in life, why don't we cook and eat as tasty as we possibly can? I think that when trying out new dishes you sometimes find a new favourite dish, sometimes you don't... I normally likes spicy food, however when trying out the world's spiciest hotdog, in Stockholm, known as "Harakiri" it just was a bit over my edge haha! But hey, a new experience =)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I recently came back from an amazing trip in South America, where I visited several countries such as Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia and Brasil. I always try to travel as light as possible and to be quick and neat. I have a keen interest in meeting new people, but at the same time I am also very conscience of other peoples space and privacy and try to respect that.

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Namibia, Norway, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

Spain, Sweden
