I'm a optimistic, easy going guy from the north of Sweden who moved to Stockholm after a while in Malta for work. I love traveling and challenges. I'm a running addict and really social and interested to get to know new people all over the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Couchsurfing is a good way to get to a new city and see it from their side and not succumb to the tourist traps. Nice way to find out the best part of cities you are visiting like other tourists will miss.
I created my account when I lived in Malta but had to move back to Sweden. I started using this a bit more in the autumn 2010 mostly hosting but also surging many times. Check references from all amazing people! :)
