About Me

I'm living in my camper. In it there is room for one person more. So, if you are interested to stay with me, it will be 'there were I am' :)

How long you stay is totally depending on how we get along. Might be forever ;)

Roughly my trip is from Milano (starting 30/07) then Croatia and slowly turning to Holland (ETA 10/09) I will visit the coast, small places and lakes and also do some kite surfing.

You can, until you find out you can't.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting many travelers, using different ways of transport.
From now on campering in Europe.


After being a host for many, we had our own CS experience in summer 2009, on a bike trip in Holland.

Hosted several with a great feeling. I think CS (and other hospitality websites) is one of the greatest projects in the world. Had only very positive experiences.

Next to couch surfing I have had a lot of people volunteering at my place (a pancake house in Denmark) via WorkAway and HelpX.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
