About Me

I'm social and easy-going young woman from Finland. I eat vegetarian food and I have a healthy lifestyle. I'm optimistic and positive person. I try my best to enjoy and appreciate the small things in life as well as the bigger things.

I'm active, and I prefer walking and exploring my surroundings rather than staying still. I'm always up to trying new things. I like to fill my days with activities and I like to do sports and exercising.

Dear guys, I'm not looking for dating on CS. :)


I'm a morning person so I like to go relatively early to bed and wake up early. As a host I find it way much easier if my guest has the same daily rhythm while visiting.


I would like to share my time with my hosts but I understand that it's not always possible - people have lives of their own - so I can do stuff by myself as well. I respect others' belongings and clean after myself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Like most people in CS, I also like to meet new people and explore the world. :) I like to learn about different cultures and I think that the best way to do this is to get to know locals. I want to have an inside perspective of the culture and expand my understanding. I also want to practice my language skills.


Travelling, different cultures and views of life, languages, people, beaches, food, nature, animals, fitness and sports in many ways: gym, cycling, jogging, swimming etc.

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't read much - yet. Learning to take the time and read a book just for fun is a work in progress. :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn and understand the culture of the country I'm visiting. I can teach anything I know, e.g. sewing, nutrition...

What I Can Share with Hosts
