About Me


Want to see the whole world and meet loads of people!


Hi! I'm Thru, an Icelander born and raised in the small village of Hella in South Iceland but living in Glasgow, Scotland as of August 2016! I love travelling, like most people here, but I also love the outdoors, hiking, kayaking, diving, photography, Body Pump, badminton, listening to music, playing Nintendo games, watching TV, going to the movies, hanging out with friends and other things I can't remember at this point in time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've received CouchSurfers to my home in Iceland, Denmark and Argentina! I`ve surfed people`s couches in Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, England, Mexico and Morocco. I have lots of friends from the CS project and making new ones on the road all the time! It`s incredible!


Traveling: Been to many places but still dreaming of going to Namibia, Cuba, Canada, Japan, China, Laos, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Greece and Italy - would basically like to see the whole world, but you got to start somewhere, hey?!
