About Me


Get to know people, cultures and landscapes from all over the world.


Curious student who loves nature and wants to end up at a nice homestead with goats, bees and lots of cats.

So i try to spend as little time as possible behind a tv or computer! I like drinking coffee and whisky. Music festivals and brewing and baking stuff.

I want to see a lot of Europe.


Live in this moment, at this place. So enjoy NOW.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Make crazy things (happen); beer, marmelade, deodorant, houses. Canoe trips, wind- & wavesurfing, hikes etc.


Nature. Food. Music, always good music. Bikes. And vintage; old tools and bikes in particular!

Music, Movies, and Books

Das Leben der Anderen, Amelie, Looper, Sweeney Todd, Lord of the Rings.

Indie, folk and singer songwriters; bon iver, the XX, ben howard.

Not much, but working on my classics. English stuff first, then russian?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing owls fly close by me. So silent, so perfect. Made me awe.

Walking into a snow-covered isolated valley with our group of tour-skiers. The sheer beauty was breath-taking.

Canoeing in the Netherlands. In the morning, on a foggy lake.

Blazing over sandbanks while windsurfing. Pure adrenaline!

Teach, Learn, Share

Can teach about nature, about growing and observing it. I also know some stuff about eco-building; straw bales, cob etc. Practical sustainable living

Want to learn to play music. Mostly the didge and the guitar. I would like to surf and do other outdoor stuff.
