About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get enough money to travel around the world for 4-6 months

ABOUT ME

I'm an impulsive, optimistic but also gets easily distracted. I work to live and not opposite.
I can come of as intelectual, but I'm hopeless with names.
Love a good laugh and humor is the best spice of life.
Love to travel because of the sense of freedom it gives me. Also feel that traveling could learn me something I can't get at home. Don't know what yet.
Hope to exspand my view of the world

PHILOSOPHY

I don't have some concrete philosophy I follow. I'm a confused agnostic, that keeps all options open.
I try to follow what I like, and don't like to plan more than a year ahead.
As I mentioned above; I work to live and don't live for my work.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

First of all I like to get in touch with people that can help me experience the best there is around the places I'm going to visit.
I don't yet have my own flat, so I can't offer a couch, but in a year or so, I'm setling down and then my new couch shall be bought with CS on my mind!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Totally knew to the concept, but it has happened that I borrowed a couch from a friend of a friend during traveling.

Interests

Golf, climbing, sailing, diving, tennis/squash, mountainering, surfing, skiing. Have tried a bunch of other activities as well, but usually only 1 or 2 times. Love to try new things!

Music, Movies & Books

Music is all about mood and surroundings. My taste is as wide as the world!
I can watch any movie that has good acters and a good plot, but comedy and action is on top. Don't like horror.
My favorit book is; A fine balance. Can't remember any other "must read" books right now.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The thing I'm most proud of, that gave me a feeling of pure joy and made me forget everything else was when I made my last step up the top of Aconcagua (6962m). I got to share the experience with one of my best friends!

Teach, Learn, Share

Always bring a towel! (an idea stolen from the Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy).
In my experience, the best vacations are those with a purpose (other then getting a tan and drink lots of alcohol). Go to a place to learn how to surf, climb a mountain or learn a language. Choose activity and then go to the place where you can get most out of it.
I like to learn scary things, so that they don't seem so scary anymore. I like to learn more about people and hopefully as a consequence learn more about myself.
