Getting back to Couchsurf community after few years break. Finally gave up, and refuse to pay annual fee :D
I'm 28 years old traveler with a great sense of humor and warm heart.
I'm not that shy than Finnish people usually are, but I appreciate my own space sometimes.
I like multiculturalism, sharing values and languages.
I am willing to host guests for about 1 week at maximum. Weekdays or weekends, it doesn't matter.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
When I was eleven years old, I travelled with my parents to Luxor (Egypt). I found out that there was kids of my age, who begging for a money. And same time they looked so much happier than us. I realized that the money is not a way to happiness.
After tiring summer, I went to Barcelona with my friend. One day we walked to Park Quell. We sit there, held each others hand and wind blew. And then I realized that some times you have to go far away, that you can see closer. After that trip I started to travel more often!
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach Finnish for you. Believe or not, but it is second hardest language in the world ;)
I can teach cooking and baking, because I was a pastry chef. I can show, how to make perfect Pulla (Finnish Pastry).
I would like to learn new languages, and of course try some new recipes :)
