About Me


To find and appreciate beauty in it's different forms.


Pirate from the islands who has settled down on the coast.
Restless, at peace when things are moving and changing. My spirit flies when I am finding, exploring, discovering.


Be positive! When meeting with difficult situations, dash forward bravely and with joy.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have surfed couches in Finland and Peru, and hosted a number of people. Very positive and inspiring.

Couchsurfing has also proved to be a magic bullet for making friends in new places. Almost too easy!


Right now I'm most interested in judo, gardening, hiking in nature..... but my passions usually change after a few years. I also enjoy playing electric guitar!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Bicycling in the Andes. Crossing the highest point on my route in the night, in complete darkness except for my pathetic headlamp, and seeing the other side next morning when I crawl out of my tent into the zero degree air!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you both my local languages (Finnish and Swedish). We can talk about nature, rock/heavy metal, people, life, whiskey, animals, humans, love, anything......

If you have been to rural Mongolia, where people play with bears instead of kittens, I'd love hear about it.

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Colombia, France, India, Japan, Nepal, Peru, Slovakia, Spain
