Get inspired, be inspired, inspire others and stay inspired.


I've travelled and lived in three countries for the past 2,5 years while studying English and Creative Writing at the University of Iceland. I lived in Thailand for nine months, Germany for four months as an Au-Pair, and now in Sydney as an Exchange student at Macquarie University for six months. I have gone to live in Iceland in-between. Home often pulls me back when I least expect it :)

When I feel that I need to change something I just do it without hesitating. I am a wanderer that is certainly not lost (well at least not all the time) but find myself in new situations and new projects regularly. I can proudly call myself "a resident of the world".

Next mission: May 2016: Graduate from Uni.
Summer 2016 in Iceland: publish a travel magazine
Autumn 2016 - Spring 2017: Study Adventure Tourism


My personal philosophy is that we are born to fulfil a particular purpose. A purpose that we decided to fulfil when we left our previous life. I believe we are all on a spiritual path, and we all have a personal message to the world. We all got something to share, and we all have an interesting story to tell. I truly believe that we are meant to be happy, and we can only become so if we follow our path.

Why I’m on AirBnB?

I love to meet people from all around the world and absorb myself into a local environment when I am in a new place
