About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Heading back to Napoli!

ABOUT ME

I grew up in northern Sweden, but knew already as a teenager that I wanted to explore the world. Right out of high school I spent a year in London, then moved to New York where I went to college, played in bands, fell in and out of love, adopted a dog. Then I moved to New Orleans and had a meat-eating relapse and experienced hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. Back to Sweden and Stockholm for a short stint. I've been in Berlin since August 2009. I freelance as a writer/editor and translator. I also teach yoga. I'm a morning person and a vegan. I think my curiosity is my best quality, it's what keeps me interested.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm curious and that's what keeps me going. I love pondering the big questions, like what's the meaning of all of this. And I'm old-fashioned. I don't like Facebook and much prefer letters over emails.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I joined!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None! I'm brand new to this! At least officially. But I've always been a gracious host and guest. And a curios person.

Interests

Music, playing it, discovering it. I go to shows a lot and spend way too much money on vinyl records. I also used to play in bands and may do so again soon. I like going to the movies. Vegan cooking. Climbing. Yoga. Traveling. Reading and writing.
