About Me

Just another ordinary person doing my best to live an interesting life while trying to cover my general needs for cultural stimulants an a vast amount of good coffee.

I am living with my girlfriend in a flat in the center of Vejle.

My friends tell me that I am a happy and outgoing person and I generally tend to believe in them. I can cope with most kinds of people as long as they are friendly and honest.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For me Couchsurfing is a way to remind myself that there is more to the world than simply just yours and mine. I have surfed a few couches now and then and I am always happy provide other people with the same possibility.

* I do not respond to empty requests(!)
If you want to stay with me, then please tell me one interesting thing about the place you are coming from.


I have a big fascination with languages, their different pronunciations and their ways of being connected to each other. I spend some time at university studying Russian language and culture.

I am interested in medieval and early history and culture. I have spend several years playing in various early musical orchestras and working with historical re-enactment groups.

Music and stage art is big part of my life. I play several instruments but my main instrument is the hurdy-gurdy (Danish: drejelire, German: Drehleier, French: Vielle a roue, Spanish: Zanfoña., Italien: Ghironda) (Please go and look it up).

Music, Movies, and Books

My choice of music depends on the situation so everything from Jazz over electroinc and traditional and classical music works on me.

Sci-Fi series and British comedy for the win! Doctor Who, Star Trek, Firefly, Black Adder, Big, Black Books etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing my first opera ever at the Bolsjoj Theater in Moscow made a great impression on me and this later made me spend a year at university studying Russian language.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to roast your own coffee or perhaps tell you a thing or two about whiskey.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I hope that I can leave a little something that will have changes things in an interesting and positive way.

If I am traveling with my instrument I will be happy to show you or perhaps even give a small concert. - Ever head of a hurdy-gurdy before ?
