About Me

CURRENT MISSION

explore the world, and host other explorers during their quests.

ABOUT ME

I better give you some cold facts, so you atleast can make an impretion of who I am. I was born on a little island with the north sea as closest neighbour, and learned to love the nature in all its form from my childhood. I still love the nature and spending time in the outdoors, but I also have learned to love the city life. I'm not into the wild club life and discos, but like to go out with friends for a good time. If I'm going to dance anything do I prefer salsa. I know how to enjoy a good conversation everywhere, but they often take place in restaurants, a small café, pub, ot around a bonefire in the mountains.

I love reading and some of my fav subjects are history, politic, different cultures, music, sports, art, and food.

PHILOSOPHY

I am christian, and that's the main influence in my life. I think it's something good, and something I can learn from all humans. I have many friends with other worldviews and religions, and think it's important to be able to respect eachother, and to be friends no mather coulture, religion, and worldviews.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host people, organize events, and try to help in any way I can. I began to count how many I hosted, but stopped. It's not about the number I have hosted, but about the people I have met. Each of them have brought something new into my life that I am gratefull for. Some was nice people I am glad I met, others are intersting people I hope to meet again, and than there are some that will stay in my life as close, good friends.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I host as often as I can, and spend alot of time hanging around and meet surfers in Bergen.

Interests

diving, swiming, climbing, fishing, fotball( both watching and playing), skiing, hiking, reading, art, cooking, salsa-dancing, theatres, movies, conserts to mention a few interests. Honestly does some of them stay closer to interests than hobbies. Meaning that I am not an expert in everything I do. I just do my best, and enjoyes it while doing it.

Music, Movies & Books

Love almost all Movies, but to mention a few: historical movies, adventure movies, action, Sci-fi. horor, trillers. Movies that makes me think is great

What kind of music I listen to depends on my mood and situation: classical, jazz, rock, latin, folk-music, to mention a few. I am a member of Bergen jazzclub, and do my best to support them by attending as many concerts as possible.

I can read almost anything and enjoy it. I love history, and to learn about other cultures.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The ocean!!! I sometimes dives out of a boat at the ocean and swim as deep as I can without airtanks. I can feel the cold water coming from deep below and water is the only thing I can see for a moment. I can only stay there for a short while before go back to the surface, but those seconds are amazing.

I have seen homeless families been giving a house. I have been there when people with no hope for tomorrow been given a new life. Their faces is some of the most amazing and wonderfull I have seen.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love cooking, and normally people seems to like my food. SO I guess I can teach you about norwegian foodculture, and maybe you can give me an introduction to yours. we might even end up sharing a meal ;)
