Touching my nose with my tongue
Will be living in Lisbon from February - July 2016. Unfortunately I can't host anyone as I'm living in a shared flat, but I can meet up for beer, etc.
My name is Øystein, I'm 23 years old, and I think pears are underrated. I am from a city called Tromsø, one of the northern most urban cities in the world, although I now live in Bergen, the city with the most rain in Norway. It's too cold for me here in the winter time, so I go traveling as often as I can. I did two exchange years, one in Uruguay and one in Russia. It was pretty sweet. Next spring I'm off to Lisbon for six months!
I try to be as open-minded as I can, but I can't say that I am completely free of prejudices. I try, though. I also have some stereotypes, and I even like them. I don't even think there's anything wrong with it, as long as you don't expect every single one of them to be fulfilled.
I have a love/hate thing going on with religion, as I guess most people do to a certain degree. I don't believe in a God, but of course don't mind if you do. If you are a Buddhist, you are especially welcome.
I'm quite eccentric, and I have a very direct and politically incorrect humor, so be prepared. No, really: I joke about everything from religion to holocaust, so don't say that I didn't warn you!
The biggest dream in my life, beside growing wings and learning how to use the force, is being completely free. But I guess they represent the same thing. I just started paragliding, so I'm coming closer to self fulfillment. Hurrah! Having the opportunity to do exactly what I want to and to go anywhere I want to is my objective. As I can't fly everywhere, my favorite form of traveling is hitchhiking. You meet the weirdest people, but it's so liberating.
Step out of your comfort zone.
Por que estou no Couchsurfing?
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm living in a shared apartment at the moment, so I cannot host anyone. I'll get back to hosting when I get my own flat. Which could be in some time, as the real estate prices in Norway are ridiculously high.
I used to host quite a lot of people, but nowdays I'm not too active anymore. I have used couchsurfing when traveling, but it's not my main source of shelter while out in the world.
Blowing soap bubbles
Things that blow up
Candles that smell so good that I might, under some circumstances, be tempted to eat them.
- scuba diving
- rock climbing
Músicas, Filmes e Livros
Above all else, I am a music lover, and I love progressive rock. Psychedelic, spacy, beautiful progressive rock. Also, I have a weakness for house and techno.
My favorite bands are Supertramp, The Beatles, Alan Parson's Project, The Doors, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Camel, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, The Hives, The Police, King Crimson, Rolling Stones, Franz Ferdinand, The Zombies, Jane's Addiction, Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears, and last but not least, my band, Olgas Amazon. Oh, and there are the prog rock bands from Argentina: La maquina de hacer pajaros, Sui Generis, Crucis and Espiritu.
My favourite movies are Donnie Darko, Almost Famous, Memento, The Prestige, Silence of the Lambs, 99 francs, El piel que habito, Populærmusikk fra Vittula, The elephant man and of course The Shining! I am averagely interested in litterature, but mostly modernistic works like those of Hamsun, T.S. Eliot, Joyce and Dostojevsky. Also I love modern crime novels, like those of Stieg Larsson, Jan Guillou and Jo Nesbø.
Uma Coisa Incrível que Eu Fiz
I have seen the sky explode in purple and green waves of northern light, or "Aurora Borealis" right outside my front door. It's something you don't easily forget.
A guy in Myanmar just gave me a live chicken in my arms with no explanation.
Spent two months in India
Hitch-hiked from Argentina to Colombia.
Got kidnapped and mugged
Fought a bunch of evil monkeys at a monkey temple in Jaipur
OOOhh, and the best: Once, while in Uruguay, there was a natural phenomenon happening in the ocean. The water was filled with small organisms that would shine when there was movement, like if you swim in it, or where the waves broke. This was, obviously, in the middle of the night (as you wouldn't see them in the day, duh!) Anyways, me and my friends grabbed our surf boards and surfed these blue, shining waves.

I can teach you to part an apple in two with your hands, to make an origami lily, or to cook ceviche! Never tried ceviche?! You've missed out on one of the best treats in life. Here's a link: http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/seafood-recipes/peruvian-ceviche/#OhJI44zMvKGqKiVU.97
