About Me

When I am home in Copenhagen, I really love to use the city in as many ways as possible. I bike everywhere and I love to hang out in one of the many lovely cafes or bars in my neighbourgood Nørrebro or Vesterbro. In summer if the weather is good I love to sit outside in the parks of the city and drink rosé wine or coffee. Preferably combined with a concert or a music festival or a flea market.Besides that I love to talk and be around people, sharing stories. Cinema is one of my big passions, and I love to watch movies, as well as go to art exhibitions, I like photography, reading, cooking and eating.I live in a shared apartment with my boyfriend and three others, where we try to cook and eat together as much as possible. We are all really social people.

PHILOSOPHY

It'll probably sound really banal, but I belive that what you give is what you get - so I try to send as much good energy to the world as I can. I also believe that we have the ability to change the things we don't like, in ourselves, in the society.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have been hosting people in Copenhagen... And since I've started couchsurfing I try to do that as much as I can when I travel, it just doesn't seem right any other way. Have been couchsurfing in Mexico, Barcelona, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Israel and Palestine.

Interests

Languages, politics, travelling, reading, movies, cooking, art

Music, Movies & Books

Independent films! But am really into tv series at the moment, just finished the third season of Homeland.

I also read a lot of books. Have a really bad memory, so sometimes I read the same book twice ;) Right now I am reading Paul Auster and Orham Pamuk.

My music taste is quite broad, but my favourite music is indie rock (and hip hop). I also love 60s pop music and bands like Phoenix, Summer Camp and Best Coast.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Travelling three months in South America with couchsurfing, it was truly amazing! Loved the generousity and friendliness of the people I met and how the couchsurfers opened their home to me in such a welcoming way.
