Join Couchsurfing to see Maren’s full profile.
Currently not hosting due to Covid-19. Anyway, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
All I need is peace, joy and tolerance. I don't need much more to be genuinely happy, I always try to focus on positive things-life is way to wonderful to get stuck in negativism.
I hate racism, fascism, sexism and nationalism, that's why I fight for tolerance as much as I can. I really like the idea of being a citizen of the world, there's no need for borders, flags and nationalities!
The Arctic is my passion. I just love the cold North so much that it can't be described in words.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love meeting new people from all over the world cause there is always something new to learn and to think about. Honestly I got inspired a lot by some Couchsurfers I met on my way, and I am happy to call them my friends today.
When I travel I don't really care about visiting all famous sights, I prefer to get in touch with interesting people, try to adapt to their lifestyle, spend some time with them and just drift around in the place I am- so you won't find me in one of these red hop-on hop-off sightseeing busses.
Furthermore I like to help other travelers during their trip.
WHY I AM NOT ON COUCHSURFING
Guys, please note: Couchsurfing is NOT a dating website. I am so sad that I need to write this in my profile but I get a lot of very weird messages, so please stop that. I am not looking for a boyfriend, I don't want to marry you, and also I don't want to share the bed in a luxury hotel with you.
If you are interested in finding a girlfriend/boyfriend/whatever, try www.tinder.com. Good luck!
Also, send a proper request if you want to stay with me and try at least to write my correct name in your request. Personal requests are always preferred, copy-paste messages will just be declined.

I'm interested in almost everything, that's why I am keen on meeting people from everywhere with different backgrounds and opinions.
Anyway, my main interests are philosophy, literature, politics and of course the Arctic.
Here's a list with all my interests:
*Living in peace, love and happiness
*The Arctic/Scandinavia/Northern Lights
*Philosophy, especially presocratic philosophy
*The world, its countries, cultures, languages...
*Music (I play the flute and the piano)
*The beauty of our nature, I love the nature and it makes me happy every day
*Early mornings and late nights, everything is so beautiful and peaceful then
*Cooking and baking (there's always a homemade cake around, so if you are our guest, you will most likely be lucky)
* Board games and Escape rooms
* Lindy Hop
And of course: traveling. I know it's pretty cliched, but I think everyone in our community is here because of that ;)
- board games
- aurora borealis
- peace and love
- escape rooms
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: I like Electroswing, Reggae, Disco, 50s/60s music and Balkan music, some classical music as well (especially Strawinsky)
Books: Albert Camus, Jean Paul Sartre, Michel Houellebecq, Haruki Murakami, philosophical stuff in general, books about expeditions and life in the Arctic- actually I love reading so I read everything (except of Fantasy!)
Movies: not a movie person at all
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I fullfilled my lifelong dream and traveled to Iceland and Greenland for two months in summer 2016. I still can't realize that I made this breathtaking trip. It was just overwhelming.
Traveling to Svalbard. I can't put it into words.
Sitting around a bonfire in the middle of nowhere in Lapland and watching the intense and colorful northern lights dancing above us. That was one of the most beautiful moments in my life.
Hitchhiking to the North Cape.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can tell you some philosophical stuff/some simple but tasty recipes. Also I can give you some advices about traveling in northern/arctic countries. You'll see when we meet ;)
