Join Couchsurfing to see Jesper’s full profile.
I TAKE LAST MINUTE REQUESTS! AND I HOST DURING COVID.
send me a text message if it's urgent: +46764271340 (updated February 2022)
I reply within 24h. If you text me, then probably within 30min.
I LOVE SHORT, CONCISE, GENERIC REQUESTS. PLEASE SEND ME YOUR BEST TEMPLATES! I care about your profile more than your request :)
Please don't read my profile! It's too long and who cares. My profile tldr: I'm Jesper.
I am currently traveling the world but I'll still gladly host you through my friends in uppsala who are living in my apartment. You won't be disappointed.
I like to go for street art walks, to go to abandoned buildings and when I'm bored I go hitchhiking randomly. Come join me ;-)
I really enjoy the outdoors and organising activities. I like to do unusual, quirky, random, silly things. I try to always be up for crazy shenanigans and to keep an open and inquisitive mind. I love meeting new people while also keeping in touch with old friends and acquaintances. I am a big fan of traveling and of hospitality, both on the giving and on the receiving end. I care a lot about connecting to people from all walks of life and I strive to live my life to the fullest and to be a positive force in this world. I enjoy helping others on their journey and I enjoy deep talk.
If you want to meet up to spend time together, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm always happy when people write to me.
I am a globetrotter, worker and university student (eternal). But what I really am, that's for you to find out ;-)
Here are two poems of my favourite Swedish poet, Bruno K. Öijer, because why not? :p
"strawberries in my mouth
silverbeads in your heart
but weep not, weep not
we are many who wanna flee tonight"
"revenge" by Bruno K. Öijer
I love you
as long as you don't
the sign they throw
at your feet
but that's only the name
of another madhouse. Help
away from there
and he sends you
a bill the day after
the food they wheel
forward on waggons of steel
is called: "your reward"
but it is a bowl of
jacket crowns. If
you want to live
you have to starve
if you want to live
you have to take revenge on life!
and the cross they whip
your face with
sings "Silent Night"
but it is only a heap
of revolvers that have been melted down
aaaaah, I have
everywhere you lived
to pick up
from the gutter. I have
to a round Magnet
in my fist
it rips off the nails
of every house
I walk past
and the buildings
in time with your eye lids
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
BECAUSE I have a room I can share to help other people, in order to support a money free alternative for poor people to travel. AND because I like to share. It is a value in itself. ALSO when I travel myself I appreciate to be hosted by interesting friendly people who offer me shelter.
I think it is incredibly important to be willing to help your fellow human beings and also other species on this planet or beyond if there may be.
I do appreciate to meet other people and to connect in various ways. I love to get a different view of the world through s.o. else's perspective.
Love having a good life!

Life is now. (memo to myself and YOU)
I value friendship a lot. It is something that is ridiculously rare.
Why is it so hard to find good friends?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
lots of things ...
I cherish memories of hiking in the Scandinavian highlands, feeling primeval and animalistic, grounded and exhausted, etc etc. pushing it to the limit and beyond.
I enjoy peeking at the moon every now and then. It's a fleeting sensation, but it's a good one, esp when I grab sth from the supermarket.
I also really like abandoned buildings. Eerie and desolate.
took the car from Kiel to Pecs to meet a girl I've barely met before whom I've been writing for and was desperately in love with (It was a fail though. Life has its regrets.)
been in a relationship with Maja Nieragden (Maja! If you're reading this, yes, I did mention you in my profile you fucking stalker! Feel honoured will you ;-))
Broke in to a National Park in Croatia twice to avoid entrance fee.Ate other people's waste because I had no money left. Hiked 80 kilometers in the Swedish fjäll walking cross country.Almost froze to death in Swedish Fjäll because a storm surprised me and I lost orientation, it became freezing cold and I was wet all over, etc. I was saved the next day by better weather and a safety hut ;-)Slept in regional trains because I had no place to stay for the night.Cycled 100s of kilometers in various trips.most amazing thing I've seen was the Swedish Fjäll at Vålådalen, and the Krka National Park in Croatia and many more...
hitchhiking over 20000km in Europe, Turkey, North America, Central America and Australia. countless adventures. Hitchhiked 6000km in Iceland during Covid.
Every day I experience fantastic stuff. Most of the time I am not able to value that. But once in a while, I lift my head and look straight into the universe and it's just "wow" or I notice someone, who really amazes me, or I have a really fantastic insight, etc. Every little thing or non thing has the potential to be absolutely fantastic and fascinating. It's up to you to become conscious of it. That is, conscious of the world around you, and of the fact that you are a part of it. And conscious of the fantasy about yourself and the possibilities you have.
Go out and live!
Teach, Learn, Share
I know Swedish. I can talk about literature and philosophy. I like to go for walks.
I am interested in: alternative lifestyles, handcraft, wisdom, secret society, ecological farming, saving the world, philosophy, indie music, personal development, human nature, self realisation, bla bla, intellectual conversations
learning how to cope with the gloomy outlook for our future.
learning how to deal with disappointment, resignation and helplessness.
share moments of happiness. share moments of sadness. share moments of gravity.
learning how to be a real human being.
I can teach you something about Swedish meadow herbs, like what filipendula ulmaria (against headache) looks like or Swedish grass like anthoxanthum odoratum, which smells really nice and tastes like cola.
I would even be willing to teach you some basic chemistry if you are interested in that.
And I wouldn't mind talking about various topics in biology.
Teaching is immensely hard.
What I Can Share with Hosts
politeness and genuine interest. Sometimes even a few munchies.
And most precious of all: TIME! (2min of my time are worth about 40kr as of 2020 :p)
