About Me




I am a former journalist at a daily news paper here in Reykjavik. Before that I lived in Beijing China, teaching english. Before that I travelled around Asia for a year. Before that I studied Political Science. Now I am studying philosophy an creative writing.


Something about having dreams, knowing them and following. I think.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have a small jeep (Suzuki Jimny) and am able to take people on legendary tours to the highlands. Please contact me for further details.


Stayed with a nice guy in Hong Kong - that was through my girlfriends account - after that I started my own.


Reading. Writing. Music. Travelling. Politics. The global depression. Empire. Multitude. Anarchy. Socialism. Capitalism. Mc Donald's. Concrete buildings. Mountains. Loads of stuff I guess.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once saw the woman that walked the world. She was 59 but her laughter like a ten year olds. She was the most amazing person I have met.

Teach, Learn, Share

"Then go to the mountains! Or to the steppe! Just go off that god damn road!"
