About Me


Painting my bathroom...


"Leaving again?!" is something I hear quite a lot. My friends are slowly getting used to seeing me zooming around Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe, and all that lies around it. However, I always make sure to remember to take things a bit easy once I've left home and am on my way again. I try to avoid zooming on so fast that I lose both heart and head...


When in the subway, I love people who don't respect my private sphere, and I tend to act accordingly. When in the kitchen I love slowing down, having a good friend sitting, chatting in the corner with a glass of deep red wine while i chop the onions.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I'm home in DK me and my roomie like to have people staying whenever it's possible with the little space we have.


I've stayed some places around Europe, mostly in Turkey where it is amazing couchsurfing. My roomie and I have also had some people staying once in a while, when it was possible!


I'm studying music, art, litterature, and people, so that's what steals most of my time and thoughts. I love cooking, especially when I'm not travelling. What you create in the kitchen can somehow transport you different places all over the world. I'm definitely mad about my friends, and try as best I can to ask them about and understand whatever they find fascinating. When they present to me what is most tantalizing to them I am carried away. It's always so great listening to passionate descriptions, no matter how far the subject is from my own everyday life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The nature of Iceland will always hold a special place in my heart. It's so alive and the colours are so vibrant.

Driving through the desert in Australia with some friends and my big sis was also quite amazing. Coming from Europe to something truly desolate is a wonder!
