About Me


Enjoy the ride.


Interested in most things. Not good at sitting still. Like to be out and about and doing things. One of those annoying food people that can't eat gluten or lactose.


Whoop Whoop!

Life is short and you only got one, go nuts, have fun just don't hurt yourself or others.

Never forget your dreams and never stop reaching for them.

No one on this planet is perfect. If they were, they wouldn't be here. We are all exactly as we are meant to be. We are meant to learn from our experiences and it is OK if we are slow learners. Give yourself a break and enjoy the experience of personal growth.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Had some great people stay with my brother and I (through my brother´s account).

Sometimes it means a lot of time on a computer to sort out the logistics of getting to a couch, but it is worth it for the great people you meet.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Worked in a chocolate factory for one day and then walked around the streets of Vancouver handing out the chocolates I was given.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you think the grass is greener on the other side, water your own lawn.

Believe positive things will happen and they will.

Trust your gut feelings.

If you wouldn´t let your bestfriend be in your situation, don´t let yourself be in it.

Stay away from really insecure partners. Everyone has their insecurities, but when your partner's insecurities start to restrict your life, get out of there.
