About Me


Due to my current job and often travelling it's difficult for me to accept requests more than 2 weeks in advance.
Also, couchsurfing is not like a hotel you can book far in advance. Hosts have a life too. I don't know what I'm doing a weekend 4 months in to the future 😂.
Requests more than a month in advance will most likely be declined. Sorry

I'm kind of an old school couchsurfer I guess, I only want to host people who have read my profile. The secret world you have to include your request is clown 🤡🤡. (completely random, I have no particular interest in clowns 😂) Not much of a secret, but so many people can't even be bothered to read a single line of a profile, so why would I bother to host them 🤷‍♀️😉

I'm not as strickt in real life as it might sound like in my profile text, I promise😂 🥳

Just moved back home to Bergen (May 2022) and would love host people when I can. However I won't be home much. Got a new job where I be working 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. And a longer winter holiday. When I'm working I also live there, so I'm not home. I plan to do a bit of travelling in my free time.
I don't always book my trips far ahead, so it's difficult to say yes to a request in advance. That's why I prefer last minute requests

My profile used to say I love travelling no matter if it was to a hot or cold place. That is not true anymore, I've developed a hature for winter 😂. I might still travel to cold places, but I'm definitely more of a summer girl

I'm no really in to partying, love beer and pubs, but hate clubs, unless it's a rock club 😉


those who can enjoy the small things in life have lots to be happy about

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I both surf and host


I only have good experiences using couchsurfing, both wile hosting and surfing. Always met great people :). Never had any bad experience, just a few interesting ones. They make for good stories later 😉

I do feel a lot of people just use CS for a free bed these days. A lot of the request I get haven't even read my profile. But there is still a lot of good people here to though 😀


Traveling, football,music,books, history, movies,beer, card/board games

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: action, thriller sci fi, comedy, fantasy

Music: My tast in music is a bit random and not up to date. A little on the heavy side. My Spotify is one moment Manowar, then next Pink before some Avenged Sevenfold. And then suddenly Celine Dion

Books: I like all kind of book with a map in it, whether it's a map of an elaborate fantasy world of the real world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have a lot of amazing and random stories from "breaking" in to a Romanian cemetery, to the crazy scissor man on a greyhound bus, to being at the first Hobbit movie premier, to crossing the Belize - Mexico border sort of illegally or living and working on weather station in the Arctic for 6 months with only 9 people, and 11 polar bears

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you to cook some Norwegian dishes and my favorite card game gin and rumy. I'll be very happy if you wanna play that.

My phone is smarter than me, so if you are good with technology maybe you can help me.

Would also like to improve my Spanish.
Share travel stories or maybe just random facts. Random facts is fun. Did you know that in Alaska you are not allowed to throw a moos out of a plane when it's in the air?

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm a cook so can deffenetly offer something in the kitchen. I usaualy wandering around exploring during the day,but like to spend time with my host during the evening,have a few beers (or wine)
