About Me

Please read my entire profile before sending me or my husband (www.couchsurfing.com/people/quotar) a request.

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

We host preferably during weekends so that we can enjoy the company of guests and do things together. But you are welcome to visit us during the week as well.

I like to travel and to meet people. I have travelled a lot and I have friends in many countries. I'm open minded, politically involved (left liberal), and I have been a vegetarian for almost 20 years.

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 422 persons (July 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!

Interests

Friends. I spend a lot of time together with my friends - playing board games, watching movies, 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 more than 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.
