About Me


Experience everywhere and learn everything, but taking it slow


I am a zoo keeper and not surprisingly I have a great interest in animals and their natural habitats. Whenever I go travel I really enjoy doing something nature related, like photo safaries, trekking etc. Experiencing different cultures are amazingly rewarding, and I learn as much about myself as I do about others while traveling - or just by living.

Besides anything animal related, I enjoy relaxing, seeing friends, walking/hiking/trekking, dancing (I LOVE dancing), reading and the occacionally night out.


Learn by travelling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been hosting in my home in Aarhus, where I had my living room to offer surfers, but after I moved to Edinburgh I havn't done much, as I didn't have a place for hosting - till now.

Unfortunately I don't have a spare room anymore. So when I host I stay with my partner.


I have mostly been hosting, and did a bit of surfing.

Looking forward to more of both, as I love the people and their stories.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Taking action in fulfilling my dreams and goals.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a great interest in Evolution (especially of mankind) and how we fit (or don't fit) in to this world, and I love a good debate.

If I'm lucky I can tell you something you didn't know about an animal.

I'm trying out different things in my pursuit in becoming a better person.

So maybe you want to join me in a class (most found on Meetup):

Wednesday morning: Zumba
Wednesday evening: Laughter class and/or English/Spanish exchange and/or CS meetup
Thursday morning: Fitsteps
Friday evening: international drinks and/or salsa dancing

Or maybe you know of something else.

I would love to learn anything about living sustainably. Maybe you've visited eco communities, make your own soap, grow your own food or something completely different. I'd love to learn!
