About Me


Explore both the inner and outter world


Curious, easy-going, reflective but I believe my personality can take many different shapes also depending of whom I am meeting and is better described by my references below. I strive for being sincere, open, generous and loving but often fall short of these ideals. For me, key is to learn and keep on growing, to try to develop day by day.

Starting in autumn 2013, I am taking time of work to go travelling in India and South America. I am excited over his new chapter in life and I am hoping to meet couchsurfers on the way.


It´s not how you have it, it´s how you take it.

Experience is merely a name men put into their mistakes.

In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting, surfing and going to meetings. I try to participate whenever I feel that I am open for new people and perspectives.


I have done some hosting, surfing and been to a great deal of meetings. I feel blessed that I through CS have met friends for life, had unforgetable experiences and gained new perspectives of life.


People, vegetarian food, good discussions, music (especially singer songwriters), dancing, spontaneous adventures.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The best thing I know is to go out sailing with friends in the archipelago of western Sweden.
We sail all day in the sun and in the late afternoon we look for an own island to stay at, over the night.
We eat a great dinner together and we end the day by discussing life, watching the sun fall over the ocean.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach - Meditation, a few good recipes and languages.

Learn - Hindi, salsa or other dances, playing the guitar.
