About Me

Social and easy-going young woman from Finland. I'm an optimistic and positive person, and 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. Always up for trying new things. I'm environmentally conscious, so I try to live as sustainably as possible. I eat vegetarian (preferably vegan) food and I like it very spicy!


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.
