Making every day a memorable one.
I am a happy, energetic Norwegian - enjoying the excitement life has to offer! :) I run an NGO for Guatemalan children, and I love being able to contribute to- and improve the life of others less fortunate than myself. www.idashjelpefond.no

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have been traveling the world the past 6,5 years, and recently moved back home to Norway. I will continue participating in CS when I get my own place at some point :)
I was first introduced to CS through a Norwegian friend whom I was studying with in South Africa, in 2010. This is just such a brilliant idea!
Traveling, meeting new people and getting to know new cultures, outdoor activities, running, yoga, music, reading, charity work, and making people happy :)
Music, Movies, and Books
I read a lot, but one of my favorites are Shantaram - what an amazing book.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Where to start........;) BUT after travelling to Guatemala it amazes me every time how little it takes to change a little child's life!
Teach, Learn, Share
I am on CS to get to know people from all over the world and "exchange cultural knowledge" ;o)) Different cultures fascinates me, and I believe that understanding them makes me a better person, I get new perspectives on the world, new impulses and it broadens both my horizon and hopefully the people I meet too :)
