About Me

Easy-going guy, life-appreciator and sport-fan. Thus, I am positive, with a good attitude to people I meet, places I see, tasks I have to perform, and so forth. I enjoy life to the full wherever and whenever possible. Among many, sports are one of my main interests, and I find just as much joy in playing as in watching. Give me a ball, ballon, frisbee, racket or so forth, I will never be bored. Further, I enjoy good food, good books, all music and happy moments.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Coachsurfing to push out of the comfort zone.


See above, but plenty more. Board-games, snowball wars, king-of-the-hill competitions, hiking.

Music, Movies, and Books

Favorite music is rock-based, but also jazz and indiedisco. I appreciate the old guys, as David Bowie and Neil Young, just as much as the newer stuff, like Arcade Fire or The Black Keys.

In terms of books, I have yet to find a clear style, but I like to read in general. I've read the books of Thomas Mann, Orhan Pahmuk, Nadime Gordimer, Knut Hamsun, John Irving, and many more, and I always enjoy working myself through a good book.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've built a series of Lego-dams to find out which best stood the test of water-pressure in a bath-tub. I learnt quite a bit of engineering, albeit I've never used the knowledge in a professional setting.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Norwegian, toe-twisting and Nordic (unrythm-based) dancing. I also know how to exhale smoke (prefer shisha, I don't smoke cigarettes) as rings, but I never tried to teach others. I wanna learn how to dance (rythm-based), I wanna learn to connect the dots, and much more.

What I Can Share with Hosts

See above. I also share a drink or two, if the host would like.
