Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A good friend of mine has been a CouchSurfer and a host for many years and is always telling me about all kinds of adventures he has experienced.
He has been efficient in pushing me to try too and finally I i did it !


The Couchsurfing experience has been absolutely fantastic.
People from all over the world have visited me here to my small arctic village and many of them became good friends and I learned so much and tried so many kinds of food.
I just love all this new experience.


Although I have been a fisherman for the biggest part of my life, I just love to go out to fish and sail.

Music, Movies, and Books

I watch all kinds of movies, drama, musicals (Andrew Lloyd Webber) Comics, action movies.
My favorite music is Enya, Queen, Sigurrós and so many others.
Paulo Coelho is my favorite writer
