About Me

PLEASE READ!!!!!
(In an effort to reduce requests that will have to be declined)

I HOST FOR MAX. 2 NIGHTS IN A ROW,
I DO _NOT_ HOST ON WEEKENDS, as we use our living room so much Friday evenings through Sundays.

Due to a busy schedule, I generally do not have time to show people around. I may have time, but it's rather unlikely. I may be able to tell you of interesting things to see or do, though.

-------------------------------

CURRENT MISSION

To learn as much as I can, and to be open minded. And to take time to do things I enjoy - now - not always later.

ABOUT ME

I'm interested in visual arts and handicraft, literature and music. I'm currently a member of the Hafnarfjörður brass band.

PHILOSOPHY

"Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'd love to start hosting again, but I am finding it a bit difficult due to busy schedule. Visits and coffees are more easier to do, though, and are often welcome.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've so far hosted only a few people for short time and had one surfer over for dinner. I have stayed with two hosts in Sweden, for one night each if I remember correctly.

Interests

Literature (some, not all), history, music, illustrations, writing (short stories), brass bands / wind orchestras, linguistics/etymology...

Teach, Learn, Share

I might be able to teach you some knitting, and discuss etymology (which I'm very interested in).

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can probably discuss and share information/opinions about the Nordic gods and our modern approach of the old religion, and probably some cultural things. I can also share knitting ideas and the brilliance of knitting sleeves onto a sweater-in-the-making, instead of sewing them on later! Icelandic way.
