About Me

Originally swedish, green-fingered archaeobotanist sharing an apartment with my boyfriend.

Have a very international social sphere and love to learn about other cultures.

I enjoy hanging out with people who can teach me something, no matter the subject.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I haven't surfed many couches yet but I find that meeting new people from other countries and ways of life is almost like traveling from home, so I hope to invite the world to our living room :)


Urban gardening! Just starting up a "garden" on our balcony that will hopefully provide a lot of fresh herbs and veggies this season. I also love cooking and experimenting with baking, making jam and lemonade and such. Vegetarian.

Random creative outlets. Right now it's stick painting and dot art. I also try to learn to sow my own clothes, but still have a lot to learn.


* Needle-binding and crocheting
* Tea - drinking, collecting and mixing
* Making fires and watching them burn
