About Me

(: I’M FULLY VACCINATED :)

CURRENT MISSION:
I've visited every country in the World and now work on finding a way of making my living by traveling.

PHILOSOPHY:
Existentialism- I want to give meaning to my own life.

QUOTE:
«Travel light, live light, spread the light and be the light» - Yogi Bhajan

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hosting for karma mostly. Or just making friends ;)

Also I am looking for people who want to join me on road trips that I am arranging: www.vagaclub.com

Interests

I work as a guide at home so when I travel I try to find out why places are the way they are. I try to connect the threads and find the roots of language, food and culture. After all everyone in the world are just one big family (who have grown a bit different over the years;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I did an interview while couchsurfing in Afghanistan that ended up in nearly 100 newspapers around the world with the title “Naive, Reckless Tourist Couchsurfing in War Torn Nation”. You will see it, as well as my TEDx presentation if you google my name ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

Can rabbits swim? I know monkeys cannot

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have written a book which I will give you. It’s available in Norwegian, English, Arabic and soon in French :)
