About Me

My name's Mattias (you can call me Matti).

First, I feel I should say these things because it will help to remove some misunderstandings and you can see if I am someone you would enjoy being with. I know that the quality has declined a lot in Couchsurfing since it became a corporation and numbers have hugely increased. I just want you to know that I won't treat your place like a hostel, where I come back late at 03:00 from a bar completely drunk, or have a party with other strangers in your house, and will always clean up after myself. I also won't have my head stuck in my electronic device all the time! Another thing I should say is that I don't like nightclubs or bars, just so you know. I just like hanging out with people in a calm and casual atmosphere, just getting to know eachother, cracking jokes, laughing, swapping life stories and possibly cooking together. Those are the kind of exchanges I enjoyed the most. An emotional connection is what I value most with people I'm with.

Who am I, and why am I the PERFECT guest? A short parody, for those who do not understand the subtle humour:

• I am first of all somebody who feels good receiving from others, to such a degree that I willingly let them pay and pay nothing in return! If you want to take me out for an expensive meal and pay for it, I am absolutely fine with that. Then I will pretend that I forgot my wallet, or say that I need my mother to wire some money to me. I will come up with any creative excuse to avoid paying because, well, I'm a traveling backpacker, give me a break!

• I am willing not just to stay with you, but also sleep with you/your friend/your roommate/ all of you if I am lucky! When I say I am "open-minded", that is what I mean. Also, when I say "I love to meet people from different cultures", that really means "hhhmmmmm... Exotic women!" When I say I am "colorful", that means bisexual!

• When people ask where I am from, I say I come from the "Millennial" generation, also known as Generation Entitled!

• I am told by everybody that I am very naïve. And I believed them!

• I am "respectful", "hospitable" and "generous". However none of these self-described traits apply to men, because I have nothing to gain from them.

So there, I am the perfect and typical Couchsurfer! Now my serious self-description:

• I am honest in my observations of people and things.

• I have a lively sense of humour and I like to tease people, so if you are "sensitive", watch out! So many stuck-up narcissists out there.

• By the way, I should honestly say this at the risk of sounding very controversial because I feel it is necessary. I am not like Zimbabwe, which is ruled by a dick. if I really want sex, I will go to a prositute. I'm not bloody joking. I can afford it, and at least if I spend money on a prostitute, she is DEFINITELY going to "deliver the goods". She is not going to "have a boyfriend" or a "headache" and there is no need to waste my time for a long dinner in a restaurant or paying for 5+ drinks in a bar trying to get a girl drunk, which still guarantees nothing! Hopefully that will clear things up. I know this level of honesty is not valued by many here and are therefore uncomfortable or offended, and that's fine. Let them be and me be.

• I am a big fan of words and plays on words.

• I am an introvert so I am not the type who is extremely lively or likes to jump all over the place and who never stops moving.

• I consider myself quite emotionally intelligent and mature for my age. I relate very well too with people older than me.

• I'm a volunteer for the time being. I travel to all sorts of locations to do random volunteer jobs, in exchange for food and board, which I really enjoy. This website Helpx.org allows me to do this. Check it out, maybe you'd like it. I like to talk about adventures.

• I am learning website design, computer languages and IOS app development and investment. A lot to learn! University sucks!

• I am also working on writing history stories, which are detailed yet concise, told more from context other than content, which I love doing.

• I really love being with people who have a developed intellectual side to them, to help stimulate my own. Also individuals who are emotionally developed are also very much appreciated.

• I have very mild Aspergers Syndrome. When I say very mild I am not like other people with Aspergers, I just want to let you know that I am a bit different from other people, and I don't mind if it disappoints you. Not all people are "tolerant" and "open-minded"

• My goal is to live forever... Well, so far so good!

I would love to expand my social circle around several countries. I would rather not say too much, because I risk repeating so many banal platitudes used so offen on Couchsurfing, like "I am open-minded... love travelling and meeting people from different cultures..." I am quite happy to allow my reviews to speak for me.

I use Couchsurfing not just for staying with people, but also to make new friends from all sorts of places. Remember that how good a place is depends on its inhabitants.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I like to talk openly with people. I have plenty to talk about, including travel stories, close encounters with danger, weird spiritual experiences, and other things which are too generic to list.

I also help cook, and keep the place as I left it. No use in doing nothing. And no worries, I'm not a freeloader.

I give them great entertainment with my cheeky and wicked humor!


Well, the people I stayed with I really all enjoyed, except one, well, look, he was an extremely nice guy, but you see, he kind of tried to fuck me and I did not want that! But all in all, Couchsurfing has been a blessing!


My passions more like it!

Inner growth



Writing concise history stories. I love writing history that is told more in a field of context rather than just dry facts and content.

Cooking. I have a good touch with food.

I enjoy telling and swapping jokes with others.

I like making friends who I can keep in touch with.

I really dont like places like bars, nightclubs, or loud places, because they just are not the places for me at all, and I cant talk to anyone. I like places and events in which I can talk openly and freely with people and have fun, ideally without the pressure to drink.

Music, Movies & Books

World music of nearly any type. Also Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim, Lynrd Skynrd, Mylo, REM, Ted Gärdestad, A-ha, Fun lovin' Criminals, Classical music...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I had an out-of-body experience. Yeah, the only amazing thing I could think of!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share my humour that lights up peoples' days.

Personal insights, that may or not be interesting for the other person.

Please let me think of more

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can help cook if they want it. I always love to cook a meal with someone as a way of being social. I also clean up always. If you want any information about online learning portals, then I can help with that! I can also help with English, as I have a lot of patience.
