About Me

I'm a traveller from Sweden who has lived in Australia for 2,5 years. I'm currently on a new adventure exploring South and Central America. I'm looking forward to meeting interesting people and share many happy moments, and hopefully pick up some spanish.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think couchsurfing is a great way to meet new people in a new place. I like the community feeling, and that there's something for everyone even if you can't host. There are pot-luck dinners, bar meet-ups, park picnics, roadtrips. Just about anything you would like to do, on couchsurfing it's easy to find like-minded people.


Travelling and meeting cool people, wine, music & festivals (electronic <3), diving, experiencing new cultures, hiking (although semi-asthmatic and generally un-fit), food - eating especially, but cooking, baking and exploring new food places, reading.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love music in all different kinds of genres, but I guess electronic (psytrance, deep house etc) is what I listen to most at the moment.

Extremely loud & Incredibly close, Everything is illuminated - Jonatahan Safran Foer

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swimming with dolphins in the Indian ocean.
