About Me

How to describe oneself? My view changes for time to time but I think the words I'd choose most consistently are: independent, quirky, relaxed, down to earth, informal, direct, honest, easy going, no-bullshit type.
I am also pansexual, polyamorous, a queer activist and currently live with a partner and a cat in the centre of Reykjavík. I love big smiles, colourful socks, tea, beer, music and life in general.

I'm not hosting very frequently but if you are any sort of queer, feminist, trans, anti-racist, body positive, kink friendly activist I'd be happy to hear from you and will hopefully have space to host. Drop me a line if that's the case :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have been hosting since summer 2006. It's been so much fun and has often made my life much more exciting. It's a great opportunity to learn new things about other cultures. :)
I have also surfed quite a few times myself during my travels.


Other people and cultures, music, good books, traveling, good movies, etc.
I am also a tea fanatic and a beer lover. Bring me tea or one beer from you home country and I will love you forever ;)
