About Me


To recreate a lost life history and put it down on paper.


Enthusiam and energy combined with laidback laziness


Continue doing what you love, and it will take you where you need to be.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Participating with varying intensity when I have the time and possibility. I think this is a great network and a brilliant idea. My work and living situation does not always permit me to participate as much as I would like, but I join in when I can. Mostly hosting, meetings, and parties so far.


I heard about the project from my friend Paul who is very excited about it, and I met some Couchsurfers at a party in his house. Since then I've met many beautiful people through hosting, monthly meetings, coffees, walks in the forest and parties. Very lovely people, indeed, so I look forward to getting to know more of you.

I have experience both staying on couches and hosting myself before I entered the couchsurfing community, both through the Scandinavian tangoportal (www.tangoportalen.se), and through personal connections from home and abroad.

Had my first experience as a surfer in beautiful Barcelona this Easter 2009, and I am ever so grateful to all three hosts, and to the CS community for making my stay magical. Hope to visit again sometime!
