About Me


Discovering France


Currently I am living in Paris to study and to learn french. I am an easy-going guy who spends a lot of time studying, but also enjoy to go out and meet new people and to travel a lot, learn new places, peoples, cultures and languages.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to loan out my couch to travellers who are in Aarhus, or just meet for a drink. And I want to loan couches around the world or just meet people at the place I am staying.


I couchsurfed in Istanbul while on Interrail in the summer of 2010. It was great. My brother also had couchsurfers visiting him, who I also showed around Copenhagen, so that is how I got into it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Biked from Aarhus, Denmark to Helsinki, Finland in the summer of 2010. An amazing trip.
Same summer I was interrailing through eastern Europe with to friends. Got all the way to Istanbul and thereby Asia. Amazing feeling.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to improve my french and my spanish. Maybe couchsurfing can help me with that
I would like to learn and meet a lot of different people.
What can I teach. I can hopefully be a good discussion partner about politics, philosophy, litterature. No teaching, just conversation
