About Me


Don't frown, you never know who might be falling in love with your smile.


How to describe oneself? My view changes for time to time but I think the words I'd choose most consistently are sarcastic, independent, quirky, relaxed, down to earth, informal, direct, honest, easy going, no-bullshit type. I am also pansexual, polyamorus, a student, a queer activist and currently rent a small place where I live with my boyfriend, Tom, and my cat, Freyja. I love big smiles, colorful socks, tea, beer, music and life in general.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have been hosting since summer 2006 and had a lot of people stay over all year round. 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 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 ;)

Music, Movies & Books

Things on this list might be a little outdated, I wrote these a while ago, but anyway...

Books: Oryx and Crake, Blind assassin, High society, Vernon God Little, White teeth, Brick Lane and so many others, this is just something I've read recently

Movies: Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, Gattaca, Requiem for a dream, Fight club, Osama, Hotel Rawanda, Amélie... I am also into a lot of independent movies. If you have a good movie from your home country that you want to share with me I would definitely be interested.

Music: Tool, SigurRós, Massive attack, Portishead, Radiohead, Muse, Smashing Pumpkins, Shadow Parade, Múm, Ampop, Mugison, Jack Johnson and similar things.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Climbed an amazing waterfall and almost fell to my death in Lao.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share some Icelandic music with you and would love to hear some music from your home also... I also have an interest in all kinds of movies and you are welcome to enjoy my collection while you are here. I don't have a good collection of Icelandic movies with subtitles but I am working on it. If you are willing to share a good movie from your home I would be delighted :)
