About Me

I'm Jens, a 21 year old half Norwegian half Dutch combo man who currently lives in Oslo, Norway. I consider myself a openminded, curious and talkative person. For the time I'm studying International relations at the University of Oslo, doing freelance photography work ( and arranging seminars for my bachelor program. At the time being I'm looking for future adventures, possibly to Iceland.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm interested in getting to know new and interesting people, sharing experiences and stories. Also, I plan on making an extensive continent hopping motorcycle trip and couchsurfing would be a great way to travel and also be able to meet local people on the road.
