About Me

Hey you guys. I'm a 27-year old lady, currently living in Helsinki working for that Masters degree. I like to do those things most people enjoy, and a few peculiar things. I like to climb rocks whenever I have a chance. I think life is pretty darn great. Meeting and building connections with people from different places is just about the coolest thing, and I would like to do it more, so please try not to let my low reply percentage get to you!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've surfed my way through Belgium, and hosted a number of lovely travellers in Antwerp, and in Toronto. I like that feeling of the world being small.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
