About Me

I am the youngest of three siblings. I like to spend my time being outside. More later.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have had an amazing time meeting people. People that i have had long insightful conversations with, others that I have just clicked with instantly, music shared, danced, watched the fireplace, went for walks, gotten to know communities and quirky interests, challenged by point of view. Surfed all over in South America, Europe and hosted people when I lived in Ireland and in Iceland. It has been a challenge, sometimes hosting one lovely after another and have been taking a break recently, it has often hard to find people to stay with, especially in big cities, everyone is so busy with their lives and then I have been blown away by very big hearts, later when sucked into everyday routine there have been people that came to our house and we got involved in little adventures together. Then we are gone and its often tricky to stay in touch, but the good moments linger.

Interests

Observing and interacting with the cycles of nature (just like the first principle of permaculture, which i highly recommend reading up on) So thats the nutshell, of my universe. Inside this nutshell there is gardening, letting things grow, making mistakes and seeing how to best support the plant community.
Then I have this passion for sharing my amazement and exploring the forces that are at play around us. So in my work in national parks just like in the vegetable plot, I try to establish a sense of belonging and hopefully establish respect and confidence we shall live more peacefully on earth.
I keep myself grounded and at the same time flying in the sky with children in the after school program.
Sometimes the constant communication with other people is overwhelming, but sitting and talking often brings a lot of joy, I like to feel my self small and insignificant climbing up a mountain but also more able than before, a little bit more complex like the beloved ecosystem and perhabs and important part of it.
I drink a lot of tea, and I value quality over all, great attention to detail is essential to keep in mind, just like the thoughts that race throught and conversation that start to flow very fast. Lovely traditions that exist is the strong brew of Irish black tea, the very sweet Moroccan green tea and also mate shared in circles in Argentina, usually filled with passionate talk.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music taste ranges from post-punk to psychadelic blues. Electronic, folk, hip hop or minimalistic tunes.

Movies are black comedies, drama, surrealism, fantasy but also often the more unoriginal couch potato stuff

Books about people that find themselves in peculiar circumstances, probably not about a man that ate a salad, but maybe about a man that cultivated the ground for the salad, greeted the earthworms, built his dreams in the clouds and had mixed feeling about the fact that it rained sometimes.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I made a hugelkultur bed to grow vegetables in. It is nice to build things but it is even nicer to see things build themselves, or break down, depending how you look at it, as a consequence of your actions.

Teach, Learn, Share

Latin names of plants are very important to me. They become very useful when traveling to different countries.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Tea. I am fine with a teabag in water as long as company is good and it becomes nicer by slowing down. I like to make food, vegetarian from scratch with lots of spices, sometimes that can take time, so if there is no space or time sharing food together i like to seek something local but probably a fusion . There is often sparse time to wander around together, hosts and guests, but meeting up for some exploring can be just wonderful, or just getting to know a person from somewhere else, talk about culture, that often comes up but than goes back to the person in front of you.
