About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy what's out there...

ABOUT ME

I'm a Swede who moved to the U.K. I live in Winchester in Hampshire. I try to find excitement where ever I go.

In my leisure time I rock climb, mountain bike, go to gigs and enjoy a good ale with friends down the pub.

I like a good book, and good food (even though I am a vegetarian :D) and consider coffee to be a necessity of life. :)

PHILOSOPHY

I take things as they are and as the come. I am a very changeable and flexible person so I don't like to have fixed fragments of personal philosophy, policies, ethics or viewpoints. I cherish tolerance highly though.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I just signed up to this project since a friend told me about it. I'm doing a quick trip across Europe to Sweden, then to some friends in Italy and finally to go rock climbing in France. I don't really know what to expect or what I can contribute with but I am excited to try and if it works well I will have a couch available.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None!

Please help me understand this whole thing. I'm leaving soon on my first CS journey.

Interests

Music - most goes from Bjork, Bats for lashes, the Cure, Fever Ray, Violent Femmes, Dio, Maiden, White Stripes, At the Gates, The Dead Weather, Slayer, Philip Glass.

Rock climbing - This is a small passion of mine... I wish that I didn't have to work so that I could only travel and climb.

Skiing - Skiing is pure beauty. I tried ski-touring earlier this year and my god I loved it (I was pretty knackered coming down though).

Mountain biking - Sun, rain, mud, scenery, exhaustion what is not to like about this brilliant pasttime.

Ale - Sorry the rest of the world, there is only one country which understands how to mix hops, barley, malt and water... British Ales are the best :)

I've seen the sun shining bright at 12 o'clock at night, it's amazing.

I saw a lynx in my garden once.
