About Me


Settling down in Norway


Trust me... I am a scientist. But can't get used to think about myself this way. I am too curious and want to understand how things work. Love to talk about history, politics, sociology, culture and values. Pursuing a PhD on something.

Serious and thoughtful but also easy-going and with sense of humor.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Travelling, hosting, spreading the word about this amazing community


Overall really positive in terms of broadening my mind even when meeting people whom I will not otherwise meet - actually those are probably the most interesting.


Meeting new cultures, exploring the world. Sociology, politics, history and (surprise!) travelling.

I would love to meet people who have similar interests to me.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have to read a lot of non-fiction literature for my work so I prefer to chill out with a nice movie at the end of the day. Some favorite movies that are on top of my head: The Shawshank Redemption, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, Gone Girl, Boyhood and TV series: Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, Breaking Bad, Vikings.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveled around Europe for 2 months without a plan - just bought a one way ticket to Madrid :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I am very interested in learning about other cultures. I wrote my Master thesis recently on the topic of cultural differences and similarities in Europe. I would love to share my findings with anyone interested :)
