About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Search for answers.

ABOUT ME

Kind and sensitive. Quiet like a mouse and curious like a cat.

PHILOSOPHY

I have been working on it for quiet a while. But every time I discover something and get some answers I have been looking, a lot of new questions come to light. I travel to get answers, to meet new people and learn from them. And quiet often I learn something new about myself. People are different everywhere, different background, different culture, different color, but actually we are all the same. We are all in the same eternal circle of life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host while I can, not always able to, and usually only one at a time. Sometimes I get tired and take short break and when I feel like, I travel myself. I have chosen not to spend big money on a and fancy big house for living. But my place has some mysterious and strange soul.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have hosted a few people, and have also surfed several times.

Interests

Sport, music, movies, traveling, culture and human behavior. Strange, unusual people interest me. Normal things can get boring.

Music, Movies, and Books

Sigurros, Tom Waitz. Blues, jazz, electronic music. All kind of music.
Movies, quality movies, Euro movies, French, Danish, Spanish, British, some american movies also of course. Woody Allen, Cohen brothers.
Books.. world literature, everything from ancient books to modern literature. Our Halldor Laxness, Samuel Becket, Hemmingway, Kafka some slavish writers, german and South american writers. But now not reading so much, my eyes are tired of much reading.. now I prefer to watch the movie instead !

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1. Spending whole day in Agra, watching the sunlight constantly change the colors of the great Taj Mahal.
2. Going to Paris first time. Later going to Versailles on my honeymoon trip.
3. Discovering Asia, the charming culture, colors, the beauties and nice people living there. Discovering great China. My big love today!

Teach, Learn, Share

Still in the learning phase. I am ignorant person and probably not so wise man, and I lack knowledge about many things.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I don´t have much to teach others. So I share mostly my own ignorance and misunderstanding.

IMPORTANT - HIGHLY IMPORTANT :

I do not accept requests for 1 single night.
When you send request, you must write my password in the request: NONNI.
If you don´t have the password, unfortunately I cannot host you.
