About Me


Help, aid and guide people that visit my country.


A skilled photographer, fond of art and music. Communicative person. Work with tourism and am driving around the area almost every day, short and far. Photo tours in the evening and Northern Lights tours every day thru winter.


My way is my own. Yours might be different. I´m not going to change that nor try to.
PS. Anybody who intends to rent a car/campervan can do so with some rebate thru my FB page. Rebates up to 5% Message for info. I take no toll on that what so ever.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


You are left alone as much as you like.


Some good :) Some not so good :)
PS. As m life is very much from day to day with projects and work popping up with short notice it might take me a while to accept you as a surfer. That is why I do not reply very much in the early days of your request.


Hitchhiking in Europe in the 70´s for some months. A lot of nice people paved my way with shelter and food.
