About Me


Rocking with


It's a bit hard and limiting to try to describe yourself in a text box, so I'll just stick with one word and an explanation; "Interested". I'm interested in understanding everything or at least to know something about everything. I'm interested in meeting people and trying to "get them". When I'm in a nature park I'm interested in how the birds breed, when I look at old buildings I want to know how and why they built them, and if a milk box has a text about how they make cream, I just have to read it :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted some fantastic people through CS and HC in Aarhus some years ago.
Now I have couchsurfed with more than a 100 different people on 4 continents - and I will never stop! :)


Music, politics, poetry, litterature, psychology, history, beer and so on.
Also with age I've become more of an outdoors person, and really enjoy hiking in the nature. Well, actually I enjoy walking in general :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: I'm not good at watching movies (I fall asleep...), so I prefer books.
Music: I listen to blues, jazz, rock, postrock, trash, folk music (mostly gipsy and balkan) and so on. Some of my favorites right now are "Gogol Bordello", "Nick Cave", "Tom Waits", "System of a Down", "Sigur Ros" and different danish singer-song-writers.
Books: Don't know where to start.. Let's just say i've read a LOT of different books. In the last months I've been reading: Murakami, Connie Willis, Dawkins, Michael Chrichton, Heinlein and China Mieville

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a lot of more or less useless stuff about everything...
I can teach you how to play silly danish drinking-games and maybe some guitar.
I have a violin, but no idea about how to play it, so a guest that could teach me some, would be very welcome :)
