Join Couchsurfing to see Frida’s full profile. It’s free!
Actually living on Koh Phangan.
I know that my profile is massive & might be a bit terrifying but don't worry, there is no hidden message you have to include in you request, I won't be sad if you didn't even read half of it. Just read the " my home" information, anything important concerning your stay will be there.
Short about me: I love life, it is amazing. I like cooking, acrobatics, nature & a bunch of other things. Generally happy & easy going, everything is okey & there are no problems. The most active lazy person you will meet & secretly the shyest extrovert you've seen.
Long about me: see below.
To live life. To develop and be the best that I can be.
I come from the swedish forest & find it essential to my well being to be near nature. Have big and loving family who I keep close to my heart.
Always moving, sometimes more & sometimes less. Right now I am in Koh Phangan since the end of November & without a plan as when to leave. I lead a quiet but busy life spending my time visiting friends, riding my bicycle, collecting fruits & trash, smoking green, cooking, creating (I make coustumes for a party where I dance), climbing trees/rocks, writing letters, hitch hiking, chasing rainbows, writing, dreaming, dancing, reading, enjoying the sunset, sweating in the sauna.
Bubbles, glitter, rainbows, sunsets, stars, bugs, colours - life is full of wonders & hope I (or you) never stop to be amazed & excited by them. Naive by choice, generally trusting & liking people. Doing my best to understand, accept & respect everyone.
I try to lessen my use of resurces & waste as little as possible. Bring my own container for take away food, pick up everything I find usefull from bins (needless to say that makes my house very full), reuse plastic bags, refill my waterbottles, eat leftovers.
Rather muscle than machine, construct than consume, acid than alchohol, peace than police, gifts than greed, crazy than lazy, trust than threat.
Be the change we want to see in the world.
Here in Koh Phangan I lead a quiet life, I spend a lot of time at home & like so don't expect me to leave it very often. I like to play in the kitchen, cooking & baking usually without a clear vision of the end result when I start. I enjoy to meet my friends and just hang out, watch a good movie, have a meal or go for some adventures. In summer (since I live in Sweden it's the only time you can really spend any longer time outside) I like to visit music festivals and to stay outside at night to enjoy our amazing light nights. My best week of every year is in the beginning of August when I go to Sweden's biggest medieval event (medeltidsveckan in Visby) with my friends.
Have been traveling to Asia o lot and really love the way of life I have there; warm, free and easy. Since I feel comfortable with that part of our planet and have a lot of friends living there it's easy to just go back but I want to see more and is currently planning to learn Spanish and then explore south america. I also want to travel north america, europe, africa...I am curious about every place I haven't been.
I'm crazy about dumpster diving and stick my head in the bin every chance I get. Most of my food comes from there, it's cra-azy the amounts of good things they just toss out.
I like yoga and meditation...but have a hard time to actually create an habit of doing it. I get on it for some time and then I move or get sick or start work and all my high ambitions just fly out the window. I really enjoy acroyoga and also did some aerial silk, so much fun!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
What is not amazing in life?
Travelled over land from Sweden to south east asia a few times.
Lived in the forest of winter Sweden without water or electricity. Spent long dark evenings with my fellow forest rebel talking about which is the ultimate sin, building poetry, scrap booking our own newspaper, massaging feet, drinking tea, planning actions against advertising, practising signlanguage, cooking, expressing gratitute. Spent days doing the same, & chopping wood, climbing trees, doing yoga, writing letters.
Fell in love, again & again.
Endless sunsets, sunrises, starry skies & rainbows.
Teach, Learn, Share
I am happy to share any knowledge & skill I have, I can cook, bake, do a little macrame (would love to learn more!), know how to make a fire, some acroyoga, swedish sign language, simple sewing & have endelss optimistic views of life to inspire with.
I am eager to learn almost anything! (except most sports involving teams or balls, I'm not big on those) I would like to know all the eadible plants in the world, how to attach stones in macrame pieces, nature medicine & some star constellations.
