About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To compensate for my own lack of travelling by inviting the world to my couch…

ABOUT ME

A bit about me:

I've lived in Aalborg all my life, but always travelled a lot.

I consider my self to be a very open minded being, with an easy and intelligent approach to life and most things in it. I have a great circle of friends from all parts of the world (long live the Internet!!).

Un-fortunately my job keeps me very busy and slightly looked to Aalborg, therefore my travel activities the last few years has been somewhat limited. I see CS as a GREAT opportunity to remedy this and re-find my contact with the outer world.

I'm into culture, history, architecture, people, art, films, design, cooking and good wine and lots more. I know a great deal about the country I live in and its history as well as its politics.

I speak English as well as most Scandinavian languages -€œ If I absolutely have to, I can get by in German.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host as often as I can.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Experienced host. - Have had many different people stay with me. - My overall experience is very positive! - I love meeting interesting people, and CS certainly provides opportunity for this. - I'm a very BIG fan of CS and the possibilities it provides. And I'm very pleased to tell, that so far, in the many many guests I've hosted - I've only had positive experiences.
The very real and genuine cultural exchange that surfing/hosting is - is very stimulating, educational and really does broaden your horizon - if you dear.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I once met the Emperor of Japan and shook his hand. I also met the former King of Jordan, had cucumber sandwiches with the Duke of Westminster, had tea with the president of Russia and met a great many other grand people. And of cause our own queen of Denmark on several accounts.
I’ve given a speech in the Russian duma and in the European parliament.
I’ve written two books on pedagogies of working with teenagers and in less than one year given more than 150 speeches throughout Denmark and Europe.
I’ve thought a class in minus 40 degrees Celsius in Greenland once.

…and I’ve done all of the above before I turned 25!

I apologise in advance if this seems dreadfully snobbish and arrogant. But I hardly ever get to tell all of this, and when the field said: “Amazing Thing Done/Seen” – I just couldn’t resist myself.
- sorry… :-)
