About Me

My wife Frida and I are working and travelling the world together since 6 years back. We're ski- and scuba dive instructors. We season work and travel in-between the seasons. It's a great lifestyle and we have no plans on changing!

We are both active and like adventures. We do bicycle trips, hiking, skiing, diving (scuba and freediving but are beginners) and much more. We enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle.

Food is a major part of our travel and we love trying new food. And we like to learn how to cook local dishes. We are both vegans so we don't eat any animal products. No meat, chicken, fish, seafood, egg or milk. This might sound difficult but it's normally not. Most places got many dishes we can enjoy :D

Non of us are big alcohol drinkers. We drink very rarely.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We've surfed with over 60 hosts in 15 countries. We move around working and travelling almost all the time so we can't host at the moment but the day we settle down we will start giving back to the community.


Retouch, environment, photography, diving - both sky and scuba, many different kinds of adventure sports, food and cooking, cultures, travel

At the bottom of my interest list is cars and motors (as long as it's not a mini cooper or electric cars)

Music, Movies, and Books

Music is best live.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When my girlfriend Frida and I started our charity organisation and could complete out first project. I realised the possibilities of helping and how much you can do with a very small budget. It is possible to change and make it better. I have seen it and I have done it.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to discuss things, see the way other people look at problems.
