To become fluent in mandarin
I am a happy person, always wanting to push my limits, both physical and personal. I am always eager to learn something new, meet new people and see new places. Therefore travelling is one of my favorite interests. It is also important for me to sustain my old relationships. I like to join a good party, and you could call me a "beer fanatic"!
To always overcome my own goals
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Both hosted and surfed through Russia and China. Couchsurfing is by far the best way to get to know locals when you travel
International conflicts and globalization are two of my main interests. I also, as everyone else, love music. Radiohead is my favourite band, and I am open to all new music. Before I went to study in Hong Kong I played bass guitar in a band called Arlie Mucks in my hometown Stavanger. The band are still playing with a new bassist in Norway. Lately books have also caught my attention again, after many years without reading a book.
