About Me


Explore, dream and discover


I´m a native of Iceland, born and raised in Reykjavik. I consider myself an open-minded person that is always willing to experience new things, have fun and enjoy life to its fullest capacity. My ultimate goal is to travel further, learn more and love better


"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you did not do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

"I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in" - John Muir

"What people do about their ecology depends on what they think about themselves in relation to things in their environment." - Lynn White

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I´m always willing to share my knowledge about Reykjavik with travellers. Send me a line if you want to meet up or if you need information about anything!


I´ve met a lot of great people and gained friends for life since I started with CS. It has changed my view on travelling and opened my eyes to how easy and inexpensive it can be
