About Me


Free your mind and your ass will follow


A restless soul and a complete paradox as a person. I'm badly obsessed with traveling and thats what I've been doing the last 6 years and that's what makes me happy. finally able to host other travelers again and balance my couch karma:)

I'm constantly lost, in life and also because I lack any kind of orienteering skills :P

I'm really good at sleeping! anytime, anywhere!

Ive been a vegetarian/vegan for almost my whole life (no, my parents were not hippies), I dislike (not hate) garden gnomes and vacuum cleaners. Im centered and definitely more on the calm side, though I never say no to a good moshpit;) also, i have a rather morbid sense of humor, bare with me.

I'm a massage therapist, also doing a bit of acupuncture and now getting trained in a traditional method of bone setting (kalevalainen jäsenkorjaus). I also study circus (BA). Yes. Circus is good.

So, that all being said, beware.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've met some of the most amazing people thanks to CS and I love the idea, however what CS has now become and some of the choises theyve made, I dont agree with. Thats why Im also in BeWelcome (bewelcome.org/members/PahaHenna) and TrustRoots (https://www.trustroots.org/profile/marmota)!

I don't give a rats ass if your profile is verified or not or if your message is copy paste, I know how it is to be on the road =)
