About Me


Explore and create


I see travel as a way of learning and a possibility to get new perspectives. Interested in getting to know new people. I love to go places off track and explore abandoned buildings.

Photographer, philosopher, adventurer, freethinker, world traveler, wild at heart and a dreamer.

I am teaching at the University of Tromsø at the moment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Traveling, hosting, and sharing. I see Couchsurfing as an revolutionary idea as its give us the possibility to share experiences, perspectives, and time without commercial interest.


I have had some great experiences hosting people and getting to know many couchsurfers around the world.

I used to travel extensively but because of a change of jobs, I am now back in Norway. I now enjoy meeting people from across the world in Norway through hosting!
