About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To become wise

ABOUT ME

I am a very openminded person. I like to play music, dance and smile. right now I am very much into art in all sorts of way; photo, painting, video, sculpture, installation, you name it. I am a vegetarian, I love to hike and do yoga, I love the nature so much it hurts, I love to bicycle. Of course i LOVE to meet new people and see new places. I don't care about money in a commercial way, I collect them and turn them into experiences. I love life.

PHILOSOPHY

Your life is an occasion. Rise to it! Every one has the potential to become the most beautiful and lovely person in the world. We should live like the lotus flower; above the sea it is so beautiful, but the beauty comes from underneath the surface, from the mud, which it sucks up trough it's roots. So the black mud is the power and beauty of the lotus flower; this is how we should take the worst things in our life and turn them into the best.

I want to live everyday with such care and dedication. I'm ambitious and I believe that every second is a gift and should be treated that way; with great excitement and joy.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host people in my humble apartment, and I surfed in Amsterdam, Reykjavik, Paris

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Every time couchsurfers come to visit us in Roskilde, we try to make them feel home, even though it's only for one night. We host people to share something with them and hopefully they share back! Everyone has done so far. We love to take couchsurfers dumpsterdiving, becuse that's a really great experence to share, plus it's eco friendly and so much fun!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

When I went to Iceland last summer. It was 8 days on the back of a horse, experiencing the amazing nature and everything was so wonderful there. I really want to go back. I learned so much about myself and everyday was a challenge I someway handled and learned from. I felt so strong. I felt so alive! One day, we had a tough ride climbing up and down some mountains and I was leader for the day. I was very nervous, but we found our way up and down and everything went perfectly well! When we got to the plce we we're camping it was just next to a waterfall. This place was the most beautiful iv'e ever seen. I suggested we took a swin in the lake by the waterfall. The water was like 5-10 degrees celcius. I am really not good at getting into cold water, and I screamed jumping into it, but I did it! I conquered my self that day and it felt wonderful. Later we gathered wild blueberries ond the cliffside.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you want we can do some yoga together. For me, yoga is a gret way to connect with your inner self. It's a great effort but it pays off immediatly. It relaxes the mind and strengthens the body. Not many activities makes me feel as good as when I do yoga.
