About Me


I have the hickups all the time, people find that hilarious.
I once got attacked by a monkey, he didn't bite me though so you don't have to worry about me having rabies.
When I was a child i collected snails but now I can't think of anything more repulsive, I think Freud would have loved to study me.
I like to write down things I have to do, especially if I'm really busy because it calms me down.
I've had possibly about every haircolor you can have.
I think the life of a cat is quite optimal.
Some people think that I have a serious tea-addiction problem.

I grew up in Kristianstad in southern Sweden spent a few months in China and a year in Ireland, Dublin but is at the moment based in Stavanger, Norway. I'm an outgoing person and I'm usually described as a bit odd and eccentric but easy to get along with. I love traveling and new experiences and the best thing i've done so far was going to China for 4 months studying Kung Fu in an isolated small school for foreigners. It's tricky too described your personality and I feel a bit like a dork trying, I guess you have to meet me instead :), to summarize: I'm versital!


Em I'm not sure, I have to think about that one!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted a few people back in 2010 and 2011 but since I've been living abroad and currently in a commune I haven't been that active.


I've been a member for about 4 years now and have some experience with surfing and hosting and meetings and greetings and I love it all. I love hosting, I love Surfing and especially meetings as well!


I have a lot of hobbies, they actually come and go all the time (facepainting, drinking tea, working out, drawing, creating music, videogames and so on). Photography though will always stay with me and I practised Kung Fu for 4 years, I do go to the gym and like group classes as well like bodypump or aerobic. I love martial arts and hopefully I will be awesome one day haha.
When I take it easy I like reading and watching movies as well.

On top of that I like to go out and meet new people, both at bars and clubs but i actually prefere Homesparties!
Now I'm trying to experiment with some Vegan cooking.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I got licked in the face by a giraff once..No but seriously hopefully I've experienced more than so.

I had my backpacking in Europe with a friend that was a blast.
But without doubt my chinese trip was great, studying Kung fu for 4 months,
I absolutely loved Ireland and I'm thinking of going back, Dublin is the place to be - a lot of beer tends to happen though haha.
