About Me


Learn Icelandic and study art


Ylva is an optimist and an engaged person. She is self-confident and you feel comfortable in her company. As she is comfortable in yours - if you invite her home and she wants a glass of water, she will go to the kitchen and grab a glass of water. She is kind and polite and she likes sleeping on couches.


Just do it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I think couch surfing is a great thing and recommend people to join it


Excited beginner!


I am an artist. Mostly I work with music, film, theatre and installations. I watch movies and listen to music frequently. After being accepted to the Fine arts program in Reykjavik, I will deepen my skills and new doors will open up. It is a dream come true to study abroad.
I have always enjoyed to be on the move. Packed bags and a final destination, no matter how far or how close I am travelling. I really enjoy to bicycle - it is a really nice way to experience landscape and weather.
