About Me


To do a Greenland travers on cross country ski's


Often busy, seldom bored... I enjoy my work, my studies and making plans for future travels. I am a linguist. I enjoy physical challenges. I just finished a bicycle tour across the US and am now planning for a Greenland traverse on cross country ski's. I would love to meet up with and host people with similar interests!


If there is a will...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can help out with information about Sweden (Gothenburg and Lapland in particular) and also by offering a place to sleep. However, my flat is really tiny, so this offer will only be given to easy going people who happily sleep on a mattress on the kitchen floor, not minding if my cat wants to keep them company.


Lots from when I was cycling around the Baltic Sea + across the States + earlier experience from Hospitality Club. I am SO happy this possiblity exists! I have met so many interesting people who have all contributed to my understanding and knowledge about their countries and for this I am forever grateful.


I like all kind of walking, as long as it is not too slow. Hiking in the mountains or participating in the 4 days marches in Nijmegen or strolling through Jutland - anything goes. On a bike, however, you get to cover larger distances and still see a lot. That's why I went biking around the Baltic sea during june-july 2009. Since I liked it so much, I this year went across the States.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Amazing things can be seen every day, especially if you hang with young children who can point them out to you, I find four year olds particularly apt in doing this :-)
