Hola friend, welcome to my queendom of one Finnish woman and 3 kiddos.
I'm hosting whenever possible, but nowadays am living a working mom -life, which means it's not easy to find time to hang out unless it happens at home after working hours. Summertime can be different though. But what I love about cs, is that it brings me international guests/social life delivered at my door 🙏.
I prefer requests from surfers who actually want to get to know the host and spend some time at my place, but last minute requests are allowed as well. Would love to surf myself too now that am starting to travel again, if only someone is willing and able to host a family..!
Btw, after receiving so many random friend requests, I decided to accept only those who I have actually met or been in contact with. So, if you want to connect with me and have a reason to do so, do it with a message please.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love to meet interesting people and share experiences. CS has brought me many new friends, some even in my hometown.
My life's been under some huge changes for years and I have learned to be comfortable sharing homes with others, with thankfulness and respect.
I believe that we can always learn from each other, and there's a meaning in every contact, no matter how short. There's no coincidences.
My ever thriving interests are music, dance, yoga etc workouts, health, people, spiritual growth, energy healing, nature, travels.
I do also love to read books, develop myself constantly for more positive ways, have interesting conversations, enjoy different foods, breathe fresh air whenever I can, move my body but also just chill and stay still, preferably all this in a perfect balance.
To add other things that intrigue me:
Hugging and closeness. Tantric life philosophy. Finding meditative states. Substance free festivals, like Natural High Healing festival in Finland. Camper vans (who is with me on this one, travelling around in a van with kids?) Hiking. Forests. Beaches. Road trips. Animals. Dogs. Cats. Babies. Colours. Stones. Summer nights. Parties. People.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Lived in a tent and on the road for a year. With kids.
I would also say giving birth, but I did that 3 times :D
Competing with the year without a home, is my self-healing of a chronic illness with brain retraining. Check out DNRS-program if you're curious about brain retraining and how it can help people with many common and non-common health issues.
Teach, Learn, Share
We are here to learn, aren't we? I'll be happy to share what life has taught me, and to hear your life teachings.
People often want to hear if one has negative experiences in couch surfing. I want to focus on the positive stuff, and there is plenty! I've met some amazing people and made very good friends in cs.
I really love this concept.
What I want to add to that, is that as in life in general, also in cs there is a small group of people who don't respect other's boundaries. Especially as a woman, I have had those experiences. I want to remind, that we all have a right to refuse someone's company or messaging, if we don't feel good about it - and our refusal to be respected.
About messaging, I also want to say that personally I don't want any random contacting. Please contact me ONLY, if you are
a) looking for a host at TAMPERE
b) in need of help or want to ask about something in Finland (google is very helpful too)
c) visiting Tampere and want to meet locals
d) living at Tampere and want to make new friends in a sincere manner
e) responding to my public trips when I travel, which btw is very useful function here. I recommend to try it!
Thank you for understanding 🙏
