About Me


My current mission is to figure out what I want to do in life. While I'm trying to figure that out I want to spend my time traveling and having as much fun as possible!


I grew up in a little place called Tyresö, a suburb of Stockholm. That's where my family, my friends and my life is. I love Stockholm but sometimes you just have to get away! That's why I decided to go to Canada for a year and get to know my half- sister and brother better since I didn't grow up with them. I've had a great year and I don't regret anything.

I am a pretty laid-back person who just wants to enjoy life. What's the point of living if you're not enjoying yourself?

A perfect day for me would be hanging out with my friends at a country house in the archipelago of Stockholm, reading magazines in the sun, walking to the store and buy fruit and then hit the beach. The day ends at the rocks by the water, drinking beer while the sun sets.

There are so many things I want to do, learn how to play the guitar for an example, and so many places I want to see... I'm just getting started!


Don't be too hard on yourself and live everyday as if it was your last.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am brand new to this site but couchsurfing is not new to me, I've spent every weekend on other people's couches this year since I live pretty far away from Toronto where the action is!


I love music, I've played the piano for 10 years and I used to sing in a choir. I like going to the movies, shopping, partying, dancing, baking, sunbathing, having coffee in the old town in Stockholm etc...
