About Me


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.


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


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

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'd love to host more people, but it's been rather difficult for me/us lately due to moving and the arrival of a new family member (Dec. 2011). Visits and coffees are more easier to do, though, and are very welcome.


I've so far hosted only two people (for one night) and had one surfer over for dinner. I hope to expand my experience this year (2012).
