About Me


To find myself a future


I'm 25 Years old and I live in Reykjavík, Iceland. Before I came to Iceland I studied German and History at University. I had always been obsessed with Germany and have spent a lot of time living there. I like to travel as well and have been to South East Asia and Eastern Europe on long trips. I am currently planning a little Euro-trip, couchsurfing and staying with friends. I may be going to Sweden in September to do a masters in European studies, but I'm waiting to be accepted.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've not done much surfing or hosting, but I have been involved in the Leeds and Reykjavík networks. I would like to surf more, but I already have so many friends around the world, there aren't so many cities I need to find a host ;)...
