Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It surprises me every time how easily travelers can connect and how nice and inspiring it can be to talk to new and open-minded people, share experiences and ideas.
Couchsurfing is the place that brings all of us together and opens up opportunities and chances to have a great time with interesting people.


I love taking photographs on the street and being in the mountains or next to the sea. I'm also interested in art and tips about cafés, hitchhiking spots, hidden beaches, hikes and streetart/urbex corners. I love outgoing adventures/hiking/biking as much as I enjoy cozy days with playing cards/going to the cinema or cooking together. I also volunteer at film festivals to see many good movies in a short time for free.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

sitting in a mini hot pool at the lighthouse in reykjavík with a friend and watching breathtaking northern lights.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am open for all sorts of new ways to do and see things and I get excited about interesting and funny facts, objects that look like faces and aesthetically pleasing compositions.

I can offer my ear for all sorts of life-problems, my hands for cooking and my eyes (and index finger) for taking good shots with the camera.
