Join Couchsurfing to see Taika, Laura and Saara’s full profile. It’s free!
living, loving, learning, travelling..
so we are 3 finnish girls from Helsinki, the capital of Finland. Two of us are sisters, namely, me and Laura and Taika is just like a sister to us :)). We all used to live together for a long time, hence the shared profile here, but we don't actually live together anymore (this can turn out to be a good thing for u fellow surfers, cos when sending a request to us u're actually sending it to 3 different apartments! ;))
So Laura lives in Santiago de Chile in South America and sometimes in Helsinki or Porvoo a smaller town in south western Finland, about 45min from Helsinki, at the moment, and Taika lives with her boyfriend in Helsinki. Me, Saara, on the other hand, have been living in Berlin more or less the past 4 years so I will also be offering a couch there soon.. To say something about "us"; we are all students (of social sciences) and we've all lived abroad and traveled quite a bit, and also speak foreign languages :). We are not typical finns, but instead, actually pretty TALKATIVE and OUT GOING! we like our music loud and live if possible but this doesn't mean that we wouldn't appreciate peace an tranquility too, some moments are better spent in silence. Urban adventures are always fun but so is a 5 day trek in the nature without the modern commodities. We are open for new experiences and friendships so don't hesitate to contact us!
Well, we hope that people live their life to the fullest, even though it's such a cliché it's true. We hope to make a difference with positive attitude. Just do it!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Meeting up with people, helping them out the best we can, contacting people in the groups we belong to..hosting and visiting surfers around the world
Hosted a few ppl and surfed a few times as well. Mostly we've been just meeting up with ppl in Finland and also on our travels abroad! We also check out our groups weekly and reply to all the ppl we can..it's always nice to help! and it's been a good way to ask for help as well.. done that a couple of times! thanks fellow couchsurfers! :D

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
impossible question there are so many beautiful moments and adventures to share.. but hmmmm lets just say TRAVELLING
Teach, Learn, Share
well we can at least teach the finnish language if nothing else! or english for that matter.. due to extensive travels also tips and stories from distinct parts of the world will be available when requested ;P
What I Can Share with Hosts
a conversation, a beer/coffee/tea or a glass of wine, stories of our travels, ideas, laughs, food, time, friends.. experiences! We don't expect our hosts to feed us or to finance the things we do together but in stead would actually like to cook for them or to help clean the house etc if possible
