About Me




I love sports (any kind), travelling - meeting different people and discovering new cultures, music and books. Studied sport regeneration and nutrition for 3 years, european studies and rural development for 5 years now. Really like to travel with a sport purpose - snowboarding, freeskiing, surfing, etc..Have been to almost all countries in Europe, har the chance to live in Florida for 10 months, university of Florida, masters degree. My favourite quote and maybe a little bit how i feel about life - Happiness is only real when shared..


Happiness is only real when shared ...
sports, people and enjoying THAT moment at the real time makes me happy, and if I am happy, I share and spread it as much as possible

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted many many more than ia actualy surfed. I like to hepl ppl and i know that when i need help, there will be ppl to help me. I believe in a system, whether you call it Karma, God, justice, I believe in something and am always eager to help people and treat everyone nice and fair.


So far I had no negative experience with CSing or CSers, I would only mention Cuba where we wanted to surf, but it wasnt possible and even the showing around wasnt very pleasing, or nice...anyhow, I love to be part of CS as one of the greates communities in the world. Thanks


Sports mainly, teaching sports, advising, any outdoor activities, nature, meeting and helping people with the same 'flavour', 'bloodtype' :)DIY stuff, music, enjoying the beauty of everyday life

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies that I can get sth out of, that leave a message or inspire me
Music that makes me feel happy at the particular moment,
Books about self-realisation, motivation
