About Me

I'm from a town in Norway, but I have lived most of my grown up life in Oslo. I've been working as a teacher and computer engineer until now. I don't have many worries in my life and I've been told I carry a smile by default. I finished a year of travelling August 2012 and moved back to Oslo to work. Now I'm married and just living a normal life with a 9-5 job :)

I love traveling and being in other countries.
I love being with people with a different background than mine.
I love waffles, both making them and eating them :D
I love hiking in jungles and mountains.
I love cross country skiing.

I don't care if you write a personal message or not. I enjoy the randomness of the people I meet. So far I've realized it's impossible to know how you connect before you meet. Some of my best experiences on cs have been the ones with people totally different from me.


Everything always works out, so don't stress and plan too much:)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host when I'm in Norway:)And I try to be a nice guest when I surf.
I'm an ok guy to have around, some would even say fun!:)
Here is my travelling blog:


I've had a couple of guests and I've been surfing a couple of times. So far it has worked perfectly and I'm looking forward to my world trip to see how it works on other continents.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I traveled through Asia one year and met fantastic people and cultures!!!!

Lived one year in the north of Norway and experienced many a night outside with stars and northern lights(aurora borealis). Still the most spectacular natural phenomenon I've seen to this day.

Diving with thresher sharks in Malapascua was awesome.

Trans Siberian railway through Russia and Mongolia with a bunch of awesome people!

China! China! If you wanna see one thing before you die; China! A fantastic place! If someone's ever going to kill me, I hope it will be through poisoned Kung Pao Chicken!

Bungee jumping tickled a lot in the belly.

I've started using the "current mission" on cs and so far I have:

Couch surfed the Philippines: DONE!
Hike off all the Filipino fat in Korea: DONE!
Dress as a samurai in Japan: DONE!
Buy a tailor made suit in Taiwan: DONE!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can take you cross-country skiing, bore you with group theory, show you the basic steps of swing, tell you some useless WW2 info and teach you chess.

I want to learn Spanish and salsa.
