About Me

I'm mostly hosting last minute/emergency couches.

Keep in mind that i prefer hosting on a short notice and that i have a 4 day hosting limit.


To meet people from all over the world


If you have general questions about Iceland, what to do and see, when to come etc. please post it in the Iceland group

I'm open minded and outgoing and love to meet new and different people from every part of the world.
Typical middle age woman? NOPE that's not me :-D
By the way I have a cats!

Be happy, be yourself, smile and live your life!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I cannot travel as much as I would like these days so instead i hope to meet new people and learn about their culture by offering them my couch and introduce them to Icelandic nature, culture, saga or anything they are interested in here in Iceland. For me it's all about cultural exchange!


My CS experience is mainly hosting but i've stayed with CS friends that i've hosted myself. I can truly say that joining CS is the best thing I've done. I've hosted so many wonderful people and made good friends all around the world.


I could not live without MUSIC!
Nature preservation, especially in Iceland.
Traveling and learning about different cultures.
Meeting new people from all over the world.
