About Me

A way up north, there was a fella. A fella I want to tell you about,
fella by the name of John Bergquist. At least, that was the handle his lovin' parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. This Bergquiist, he called himself Love.
Now, Love, that's a name no one would self-apply where I come from. But then, there was a lot about Love that didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. And a lot about where he lived, like-wise. But then again, maybe that's why I found the place so durned innarestin'.
Sometimes there's a man - I won't say a hero, 'cause; what's a hero?
But sometimes there's a man (and I'm talking about Love here), sometimes there's a man who, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there - and that's Love in Malmö, Sweden.
And even if he is a lazy man - 'cause Love was certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in Skåne län, which would place him high in the runnin' for laziest worldwide.
But sometimes there's a man... Sometimes. There is a man.
Well, I lost my train of thought here... ah hell, I'm done introducing him enough.

For more information about Love Bergquist, please send a message or request to surf his couch. Also, there is a lot more information about this fascinating fella below.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hosting, mainly (at the moment). Surfing occasionally, as often as I'm traveling and able to. Meeting new people in my city. Meeting new people in other cities. Information while traveling. Information while not traveling. Finding parties. Advertising my own parties/dinners/hang-out sessions.

I had my first CouchSurfing-experiences during a month-long hitchhiking-trip in Germany, which was awesome.
After that I've had the privilege to host a lot of people in both Umeå and Malmö (Sweden) and tons of travelers in Antigua (Guatemala).
I surfed Rome in april 2011 and a couple of couches in Mexico and Guatemala - always had nice experiences!


1. The World
2. Sleeping on comfortable (or just nice-looking) couches.
3. Reading Guinness World Record-books inside book stores without ever buying them
4. Photography
5. Old buildings
6. Languages
7. Ideas for Masquerade costumes
8. Hungarian bath houses
9. Busting balloons with cigarettes

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

why do people always make lists in this slot when it specifically says "ONE amazing thing you've seen or done"?

Teach, Learn, Share

Sharing my electronic project, have a listen if you'd like

I could teach you how to play the piano (or the basics anyway), swedish of course, how to ride a bike (if you haven´t learned it all ready), nice handwriting, swedish drinking games or anything else you might want to learn.

I would like to learn how to juggle properly and play the trumpet. Both at the same time, or seperate, doesn't matter. Can you teach me this?
