About Me


enjoying life in Brazil and learning portugese


I'm a Danish/German who enjoys travelling the world, getting inspired and trying to learn on the way. And in the meantime getting exited about the small beauties in life...


So many people have phrased beautiful things, so I'm stealing here from one of my teenage heroes:

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace."
- Jimi Hendrix

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just moved to Rio as an exchange student and would love to get to know Rio through the meetings with Cariocas. So if you are up for showing me around in your city, send me a message.


I am completely new to CouchSurfing, even though I have of course long heard about and appreciated this warm and sharing way of travelling and meeting new people.


I love the sun, summer and warmth and all what the good weather brings along: laziness, joy, dancing, music and good times with other wonderful people.
I love travelling, getting inspired and learning new things every day, challenging myself and taking action.
When I can overcome the laziness, I enjoy sports (yoga, football, kite surfing and other new and fun ways to get some sweat rolling down the forehead), music, laughs and I also never say no to a big, load and enthusiastic political or philosophical discussion.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love music, movies and books, but I hate having to pic out favourites; to me having to compare two different books and two different musicians is always like having to compare apples to pears - they should be appreciated for what there are...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Beautiful beaches in Brazil, amazing desserts in Jordan, floating in the Dead Sea, hitch-hiking through Croatia... and so much more.

Teach, Learn, Share

I speak quite some languages, and am always happy to give out on that. I love engaging in discussions, and learning from other people through these.
As well right now, I am learning Portuguese.
And I'm always up for sharing a bottle of beer ;)
