About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

Coffee & cigarettes! As cliche as that sounds. Through travels I have recently noticed that I can definitely do without a lot of things & stuff!

PHILOSOPHY

"How much does your life weigh? Imagine for a second that you're carrying a backpack. I want you to pack it with all the stuff that you have in your life... you start with the little things. The shelves, the drawers, the knickknacks, then you start adding larger stuff. Clothes, tabletop appliances, lamps, your TV... the backpack should be getting pretty heavy now. You go bigger. Your couch, your car, your home... I want you to stuff it all into that backpack. Now I want you to fill it with people. Start with casual acquaintances, friends of friends, folks around the office... and then you move into the people you trust with your most intimate secrets. Your brothers, your sisters, your children, your parents and finally your husband, your wife, your boyfriend, your girlfriend. You get them into that backpack, feel the weight of that bag. Make no mistake your relationships are the heaviest components in your life. All those negotiations and arguments and secrets, the compromises. The slower we move the faster we die. Make no mistake, moving is living..."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm new at this. I have had friends/classmates talking about CS for a long time and I always thought about checking it out. but somehow never got around to actually signing up. But one fine day, last year (2011), I did... and right now I'm feeling like a kid in a candy store. (which is kind of weird as I sort of really despise sweet sweets)
So much to do/see and so many people to meet and greet!Haha! I'm hoping to start hosting once I am back in Sweden!
