About Me

I like to travel and to meet people. I have traveled a lot and have friends in many countries. I'm open minded, politically involved (left liberal), and I have been a vegetarian for more than 15 years.

I love to host and surf! Do you want to stay with my husband and me in Stockholm? Get to know when we are available to host: www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=fdde3cq1fig3a046tfrhdjt824@group.calendar.google.com&ctz=Europe/Stockholm

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I try to participate the best way I can. Hosting and surfing. Organizing events in Stockholm and other cities. Having fun together with all nice Couchsurfers I meet!

I have had a really good time hosting many travelers in Stockholm. My husband and I have hosted 419 persons (June 2015) since we joined in 2007.

April 1st 2008 I was interviewed about Couchsurfing in Aftonbladet (the main newspaper in Sweden): www.aftonbladet.se/resa/article11933798.ab

It has been great fun!


Friends. I spend a lot of time together with my friends - playing games, watching movies, drinking wine, having dinners...

Travels. To travel is one of my favourite interests. I have been to more than 80 countries and I like meeting new people.

Politics. I try to make the world a better place - it's almost a full time job. :-)

History. I have always been interested in old times - and I like going to museums.

Music, Movies & Books

Try going to the movies when I have the time. Listen mostly to happy bubbly pop, also known as schlager. Read newspapers and political magazines.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have been to about 80 countries. To hike in the Grand Canyon was great. The same counts for seeing the pyramids. And I enjoyed scuba diving with dolphins in the Red Sea.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm very much involved in politics and can tell you a lot about how things work in Sweden.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I like to spend time together with my hosts, and get to know their way of living.
