About Me

You'll find me swimming, humming, reading, at some meeting, writing, trying to gather my thoughts. I'm a bit introverted, but I love to share stories and laughter over tea or beer or veggie food.

I've decided to stay in Oslo for a while to study gender and criminology. Trying to figure out how to live happily - or at least feeling like I'm contributing to something - with as little money as possible in the city center.

Still, as Jorge Luis Borges,“I am not sure that I exist, actually. I am all the writers that I have read, all the people that I have met, all the women that I have loved; all the cities I have visited.”

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I've surfed and hosted a couple of times, and many of the experiences have made my heart and mind grow. I'd love to host and surf more!

Interests

I like to swim in the ocean, climb roofs, to sleep on the grass or deep into the forest, dumpsterdive, sing, think, live without money and time, travel, eat a lot of fruits, play cards and board games, visit exhibitions, underground/avant garde theaters and cinemas, feeling contact with a stranger, learn, drink beer and wine, get new perspectives, walking in the mountains, going to music festivals and intimate concerts, sharing, discuss politics, play video games, read, hitch-hike, afternoon naps, sitting up all night, write, sleep, wild animals and birds, laugh, vinyls, explore the world and the human mind, street art, flea markets, giving away, trading.

I also love to be alone.
