About Me


We are a traveling couple from Norway, currently living in Oslo. Synnøve (25) is a journalist and a dancer, and Michael (27) works for the government. We live together in our apartment in Oslo with a friend of Michael's, so we don't have space for surfers at the moment, unfortunately.

We both love traveling, meeting new interesting people, having a beer or four, getting to know new ways of living. We have traveled the world both alone and together, and together we have lived in Czech Republic, Italy, Spain and Mexico.

We blog together about our travels, Couchsurfing experiences and more in our Farafolk Travels-blog! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Micheael was the one starting it - he had already done it for a while when we met, and I LOVED the idea, so now we do it together. We've had many different people sleeping on our couch, and so far we've never had a bad couchsurfing experience.


We collect post cards!
The idea is to get postcards from every couchsurfer we've had, so make one or bring one :)



Michael: Travelling, sports (any competition!), hiking, culture & politics
Synnøve: Dancing, art, languages, photography, nature/hiking, pilates, etc...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Crazy story: We met some mexicans while backpacking the Philippines in 2013. They said "come to Mexico guys, it's awesome!" So we did and the autumn of 2014 we lived with two Mexican families for 2 months each! An amazing experience, and now we're going back to celebrate Christmas with them (2017). <3

Teach, Learn, Share

We LOVE to learn new things (at least Synnøve does, haha)!
What about
- learning some Norwegian or Italian or Spanish
- learning some cool dance moves
- learning to make some traditional Norwegian food
- getting inspired by our crazy stories - and you inspire us
- try the Norwegian brown cheese
- we showing you Oslo!
