About Me


meet new interesting people


I'm 29 years old and live right in the middle of down town Reykjavik and have since I was 6 months old. I study English Literature at the University of Iceland and work in bookstores in the Reykjavik down town area both are called Eymundsson and are on Skólavörðustígur and in Austurstræti. I have worked in bookstores for going on 9 years and really enjoy it. I consider myself a very easy going person, I do my best not to judge anyone or anything before I have tried it. My political views are very liberal and so are my religous views. I respect all religions and expect others to respect my views. I will happily converse with anyone who wants and will do what I can to make CS'ers stay in Iceland as pleasent as possible.


I make an effort to be open minded and not make judgments without looking into things first and take every person as they are and like or love them for it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I Particapate by being a nice and fun tour guide for the couchsurfers I meet.


Unfortunately my travel buddies haven't been very adventurous and have not wanted to couchsurf :( But hopefully I will have enough money to go somewhere and will meet interesting couchsurfers.


I read quite a bit and when I'm not reading schoolbooks I've got my nose in some other book, I like going to the movies with friends or sitting around talking about everything and anything. I love swimming I try to go swimming at least 3-4 times a week and I'm trying to be more of an environmentalist and take the bus to school in stead of driving.

Music, Movies & Books

Music:I listen to preatty much everything, I love blues, jazz, big band music, and the more contemporary, Kelly Clarkson, Green Day, Red Hot Chilipeppers, Foo Fighters, Hildur Vala, Ný Dönsk, Sálin, Vilhjálmur Vilhjálmsson, etc, etc, etc.
Movies:Brydsomme mannen, Green mile, The Amistad, Dazed & confused, Clueless, Scary movies, Austin Powers, Dogville, Americal History X, Dead poets society, etc, etc, etc.
Books:All of Jasper Fforde's books, Paradise Lost, Gulliver's travels, the Winter of War, to kill a mockingbird, Synir duftsins, Sjálfstætt fólk, Picture of Dorian Gray, the importance of being earnest, 1984 (George Orwell), Icelandic folk stories, etc, etc, etc.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

So far the only amazing thing I have done is live my life according to the values that were tought to me, I have not caved in to peer pressure and I try to always stand up for myself and my friends.

Teach, Learn, Share

I will teach you what I know, what you will learn from me is your own responsibility, I will learn all I can from you and will share my experiences with you and hopefully that will be vice versa.
