About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To explain to foreigners, that not all danes are reserved and secluded people.

ABOUT ME

YOU WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED UNLESS YOU WRITE THE PASSWORD FOUND SOMEWHERE ON MY PAGE. NO EXCEPTION. READ MY PROFILE!
I fucking hate people, who expect me to host them, without reading my profile. Yeah, I'm going to invite you back to my home, based on your copypaste CS request. That just sounds super (sarcasm may have been used)

Good, now I'll consider your couchsurfing request.

I'm an outgoing guy with a great sense of humor (at least that's what I think).
I have for the past 7 months been traveling in Western Europe and Australia by hitchhiking and, when possible, used couchsurfing. Those choices were based on an open minded philosophy were I succeeded in meeting as many local cultures as possible and have experienced life from a local point of view. Not the international hostal/hotel combination, which I find to be ridiculous, because you find yourself in a foreign country, but are housed internationally. If your goal is to experience to culture you are in, get the hell out of hostels and hotels. It's that simple.

PHILOSOPHY

How can you judge and criticize something you haven't tried or been near of? How can you believe your life philosophy is better than others when you haven't experienced anything else than your own situation? I try to stay as open minded I can about opinions, no matter how obsolete or crazy they might be. I find communism just as valid a life philosophy as capitalism/liberalism (but not an economical one). And I'm basically torn in life on what to believe, and what not to. (try listening to this awesome American band Dredg and you'll catch my drift http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHjiz6EEI1I )

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

By crashing couches, going to events, and, in Melbourne, hosted 20 people. Now it's time to host again in Copenhagen.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Stayed with around 30-40 different people in Western Europe and Australia. All very different, interesting experiences. And I hope to return the favor to those who hosted me, and therefore have started hosting in Copenhagen. I've also previously hosed when I was living in Melbourne.

Interests

Sports: Soccer (football), basketball, tennis and so on. Love to go to live games as well, as watching them on tv. AGF is my team, and if you ever interrupt me while I'm watching a game, I will seriously kill you. Or not. But I won't be happy! When they lose Im not happy either of course, but that unfortunately happens a lot though. haha. Yeah my team sucks, but I love it.

Concerts: Jazz, rock, heavymetal. Especially a good moshpit at a metalconcert is what I sincerely enjoy the most. Or stagediving and crowdsurfing. Best fucking experiences ever!

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Inception, The Dark Knight, Terminator, 500 days of Summer, Looper and many more. Usually action, but I like some art-movies as well.

Tv-shows: Breaking Bad, The Wire, Entourage, Californication, Game of Thrones are awesome american tv shows.

Music: Killswitch Engage, Slipknot, Opeth, Tool, Katatonia, Dredg, Sigur Rós, Lamb of God, Chimaira, Raunchy, The Interbeing, Open Hand, And You will know us by the trail of dead and once went to a John Scofield concert. That was fantastic to watch awesome jazz live.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hitchhiking in Europe and Australia (awesome).
Highfived guitarist from Every Time I Die on stage, because he said it was awesome I kept stagediving... and then pushed me of the stage into the crowd.

Teach, Learn, Share

Everytime I Die quote: "You don't live until you are ready to die. So which one of you sons of bitches is gonna make me feel alive? Which one of you motherfuckers is going to get inside my heart? Is going to get inside my heart attack?"

Also, people call me a statistics freak, so I will always have a (bullshit) statistic to bring to basically every argument or debate.
