About Me


To travel the world currently pausing in Sweden

Now - living in the land of crazy winter and extreme summer.
BEFORE - Currently running a ski shop for the winter. Trying to get up the mountain as much as possible!


See every corner of the world before I die is the goal at present.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like couches to sleep on for free and every time I stop somewhere for a longer period of time I offer my couch back!


Traveling and meeting people. People are what make the world beautiful places help enhance it
