About Me

Denmark born and raised. Master's student of Biomedicine with ambitions of a career in neuroscience.

Currently studying abroad for a semester at Caltech in Pasadena, California.
Not able to host myself as I'm living in university housing with strict "no overnight guests" policy - sorry!

Going on road trip to SF and Yosemite with my girlfriend Emily from May 13 to May 30

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I firmly believe that the best way to travel and experience other cultures is through meeting locals.


Music (both playing and listening)
Gathering great stories to tell future grandchildren
Music festivals
Physically active
Climbing (only indoor so far!)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiking in several European countries - both with friends and on my own - in the summer of 2013. Visited Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia. When hitchhiking I got to meet lots of cool people with interesting stories to tell, not to mention the amazing opportunity of seeing the world in a different way than I would have travelling the "normal" way. I imagine couchsurfing will give me the same kind of feeling hitchhiking did!

Oh, and being on a boat close to sinking halfway between Sweden and Denmark on my first (and last?) sailing trip ever - now that's a great story!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good fun, great company, cool stories. And food and beer, I guess?

I will also be very happy to teach hosts Danish phrases - but be warned: I will probably laugh at you attempting to say "rødgrød med fløde". If so, please feel free to ridicule me with foreign phrases which I can't pronounce!
