About Me


To share happiness and laughter with people I meet!


Hi/Ola/Hola/Salut! My name is Johannes and I'm a traveller. Inherited from my parents, my urge to explore the world has been reinforced by the journey's that I've taken in the past couple of years.

I am currently in Accra, Ghana. Not sure where I'm going next. I am currently split between Lisbon, Nicaragua, or Buenos Aires.


Pack light :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to couchsurfing but am very excited to meet new people and learn about places and cultures through immersion in the local ways of life!


I have couchsurfed in Rio de Janeiro, Halifax and Tamale and each experience was awesome!


Jamming on the guitar, biking, snowboarding, learning to speak other languages, getting lost in new places, culinary tourism, meeting other travellers and sharing stories over some drinks, watching movies, and playing boardgames

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to lots of different music! Cesaria Evora, Bob Marley, Jack Johnson, Jorge Ben, Jobim, Caetano Veloso, Bezerra da Silva, Chico Buarque, Wes Montgomery, Charlie Parker, Grizzly Bear, Jose Gonzalez, Kings of Convenience etc... its better we talk about it! 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' is the funniest movie I've ever seen and "The Sex Lives of Cannibals" is my favourite book.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Parading with Estácio de Sá school of Samba in Rio de Janeiro's Sambodromo.

I can share my experiences as well as teaching what I know on guitar. I want to see places from different perspectives, walk off the beaten track, learn about different cultures, speak different languages and bond with people all around the world!
