About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Work my ass off so that I can go travel ASAP!

ABOUT ME

Easy going. Like to try and see new different things. First Asian country that I have visited is China. After I am done with my internship, I will go explore the rest of Asia with a friend. I love the beach and the ocean and good food! Love to learn about new cultures. I find it hard to describe myself, what I think might not be how others perceive me :) I think I can adapt to most situations and people. Love to party and do crazy things but also to stay at home and do nothing. If you want to know more about me, ask me :)

I have lived a bit over 6 yrs. of my life in the States. I was born and raised in Jyvaskyla, Finland and I've lived in Shanghai for about 9 months. Now I am trying to figure out what I will want to do after graduation, typical cliche "trying to find myself", easier said than done...

PHILOSOPHY

If you don't like it, change it! Only the strongest survive.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am pretty new to this still. I have now attended events and through these events I have met some amazingly nice people. I am yet to surf or host, but this will happen in the near future :)

Interests

Music! Having fun, trying out new things, learning about new cultures, tasting different foods. Exploring, living in the moment. I also love reading and the beach, the ocean. Yoga. Cooking. Travel, learning new things. Reading a good book in candle light.

Music, Movies, and Books

Game of thrones at the moment, other than that I am a sucker for TV and movies, mostly anything and everything goes. Notebook is among my favorite movies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Great Wall. I have been to pretty amazing places but this is my first time in Asia and I'm stil waiting to form an opinion on each country. :) I saw F1 live in Shanghai, it was amazing, so much better than watching it on TV. Attended a Buddha meditation retreat that helped to clear my mind and body and also taught about the Buddhist philosophy and way of life. In Sihanoukville, Cambodia we went cliff diving from 6 meters, it was so amazing! :) The border cross from Laos to Vietnam was also something that I will always remember :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to learn to dive, surfing would also be nice to try...I can teach you Finnish, if you want that it interests you :P
