"A NEW FRIEND IS SOMEONE YOU JUST HAVEN'T MET YET."
Hello there! Hola! Heisann!
Orginally from Trondheim, Norway - I now live in wonderful Copenhagen, and this city is one of the most beautiful ones I know. I love the relaxed atmosphere, the open-mindness, and many opportunities for activities that the city offers. My neighbourhood of Christianshavn (Christian's Harbour) still amazes me, with it's quaint buildings, cobblestone small streets and alleys, and the canals with the lively boat traffic. Close to the city center as it is; it still is a peaceful oasis with green spaces, relaxed atmosphere and laidback people. I sometimes still find myself getting "rushes of happiness" realizing that I actually live here!
My educational background includes tourism & travel studies, international marketing, and education; and I work as a manager in a big international IT company. I'm an open-minded and social person who create a good atmosphere and like to have guests and invite people in. I've lived in Copenhagen during the last 17 years, and thus I know the city very well. I've visited several big cities, and have lived, worked and studied abroad for many years - in great places like Barcelona, Madrid, Santiago de Chile, Helsinki, Ibiza, Gran Canaria... Nevertheless, Copenhagen is now my home and my favorite place.
I have a passion for sports, and like running for exercise and play team-handball on a weekly basis. I also enjoy the movies, theatre and socializing with friends. But also like a quiet evening with a book or in front of the TV watching one of my favorite series. I also like music; all sorts really - but have a "secret" passion for the annual extravaganza that is the Eurovision Song Contest. Which by the way was arranged in Copenhagen in May 2014, with the whole fantastic circus that it brought with it... and had a "bearded woman" from Austria as the Grand Prix winner! ;o)
Due to my travel, studies and international work I get inspired by different cultures and traditions; and I speak quite a few languages: Norwegian, Danish and Swedish obviously, plus English and Spanish (Castellano) fluently. I can also make myself understood in German, and speak some words of French.
I like travelling, and look forward to exploring the many possibilities of accommodation and meeting new people that the network of airbnb brings. I'm also looking forward to welcoming you in my personal home, and my newly refurbished guestroom is ready to receiving you! ;o)
Hola! Soy un chico que adoro pasar buenos ratos, la buena música, el cine, el deporte, la música pop, la arquitectura, la naturaleza y los viajes, y hacer amigos de todas partes del mundo! En cine me encanta las películas de Pedro Almodóvar tanto como el director danés Lars von Trier. España, Grecia y toda la cuenca del mediterráneo, así como EEUU y el medio oriente son mis sitios ideales de viajes. Al mismo tiempo mi país de nacimiento Noruega, adonde me escapo cuando puedo - y para visitar a mi familia y amigos allí.
Bienvenido a mi apartamento, y a visitar a "wonderful Copenhague"!
