About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Not to be too occupied with missions

ABOUT ME

Hi! I really don't know what to fill in this box with, without sounding too complacent, but here goes.

In general I consider myself a nice and easygoing person, who (like most other people i guess) likes to me meet other human beeings. I tend to sometimes be pretty idealistic, for good and for bad. However this quality is often evened out by my sometimes lazy nature.

Although it can be rough I like to put myself out of my comfortzone, which has given me quite some adventures through the years.

But yeah, before this is getting to pompous I'll stop, and then you can figure out the rest when meeting me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting and Surfing.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

During a hitchhiking trip through eastern Europe I couchsurfed in Romania. A really neat experience! It definitely opened my eyes to why I should be a part of this couchsurfing-thing.

After that I have couchsurfed a bit in the northern parts of Perú which was equally fantastic fun.

Interests

First and foremost I'm a sucker for music and much of my life revolves around it. I mainly contribute to the culture as a consumer. I'm what they call a recordjunkie, and I love getting my fingers dirty, discovering rare oddities in strange places. I DJ quite a bit in different venues in Copenhagen. I also play in a band, where we play a mixture of psychedelic rock and psych-pop. Lastly I'm planning to start my own recordlabel, but this is in the making, so I won't promise you anything...(In other words, depends on the afore mentioned lazy nature)

I travel a lot so I guess I must like that too. I'm especially a huge fan of hitchhiking as I think it's one of the most uplifting ways to meet new people and as mentioned before it's a great way to get out of your comfortzone. There's simply nothing as enjoyable as putting your own life in the hands of a complete stranger. Furthermore it's a more climatefriendly way of travelling and I try to replace as many planetrips as I can with hitchhiking.

Relating a bit to the hitchhiking, I'm pretty interested in the different ideas related to non-consumption, and I try to arrange my life within these norms. When I'm in Denmark I dumpsterdive pretty much all of my food. Furthermore I'm a little bit involved in some guerrilla-gardening projects, and I hope to get myself together and be more involved in these movements later on.

Lastly I'm very interested in social sciences mixed with a philosophical touch, so I don't have to be to bothered with the real world. This is also what I study at the moment, luckily.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well during my hitchhiking trips there have been several occasions where I have been struck by the seamingly endless kindness and helpfullnes that man can posess. There are too many specific stories to be mentioned. You'll just have to swing by and I'll tell you.

Among the amazing places I've seen I think that the southern parts of Bolivia must have been the most beautiful landscapes I've ever laid my eyes on. Seeing ancient coralreefs 4000 meters above sea level, was a pretty awestriking experience. But then again, there's a lot of competion from the mongolian wilderness, the finlandian forests and lakes, the peruvian canyons and so on...
