About Me


To travel the world is always my mission. I have always fallow my dreams and im always moveing forward. Not always so sure about what to do, but im on my way somewhere always. After my studies in Australia 2017 I went back for sweden in 2018. Nick came into my life and stole me away to this Thailand that he love so much. We have known each other for a long time though. I feelt like i would do a mistake if I didnt just quit my new job and followed him here. Our lifegoal is just to have as fun as possible and travel the world around like digital nomads. He loves Thailand, I love Australia, and I/we also want to visit Bali and Goa and Vietnam.

He has worked as a music video maker and with digital effects.
I have worked with blind people as their guide and also as a PT. But if I could do what I wanted to do in life.
I would be an artist. Love to paint in oil and graffiti and now also in procreate.


Honest, arty and fun. The short version. Im a extrovert and he is a introvert :) But I love to be alone and he is also very social if he feels comfy with it.

I also like the idea of basic income. Im a vegetarian and I dont smoke.


Take risks and conquer our fears :) and you will grow.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


More of a surfer, but I can hang out for sure. Depends on my work. It´s a one room apartment.


3 times in Switzerland. All was good experience. Very kind and friendly. Did not have time to hang out with them as much sorry, cus I was one the move all the time but in that case I hope I did´nt was in the way for them so much. Very thankful that they hosted me.

Two/three bad in Australia. Guys. Please couchsurfing is NOT a dateing site! Be respectful!

Music, Movies, and Books

I like two swedish writers the most but besides from that, JK Rolling. Not much of a reader I guess. But i like to listen to books while i paint.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

HR Giger exhibitions and Burning Man 2016
Loved Australia! Miss it so much, but it was very expensive, more then sweden.

Thinking to do burning man again next year but then with my partner and hopefully some friends, first time I was alone and yes, I felt kind of alone. Happyness is when shared.

Teach, Learn, Share

I think couchsurfing is so lovely and it is totally in my line of thinking. To be open to new people and learn and share stuff with them. Its a privilege to get a host to open their very intimate home for someone unkown and start to knowing them. So Im so grateful for that.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I like to give a print on one of my paintings to people that host me. So you have to choose at artbyjanina.com
And I might just give you a painting if I/we stay longer and I have time to paint.

And if you ever come to Sweden and we really click, my sofa is to your service if you dont snore :D And are ok to sleep next to the bed where I and Nick sleep in. Otherwise meet ups!

Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, United States, Åland Islands

Countries I’ve Lived In
