About Me


"It's not about the destination. It's about the journey."


Bubbly, smiley person with big heart. I enjoy good conversations and opinions. I love to learn new ways to teach, do adventures and hear stories. I'm open-minded girl who likes to talk lot. Sometimes I just might go alone for a walk and do some snow rolls, snowmans and -angels. Little bit crazy some say, but hey that is just normal for me :)
Even though I'm young I have seen life. I'm really honest and sometimes I might say before I think. Life is about travelling and learning great experiences.


"To travel is better than to arrive"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm still new with hosting but love to host more. Otherwise I have been surfing and meeting people in cs meetings.


Hosted once, surfed, arranged and participated in cs meetings.


Wilderness is my place to be. Like lots of paddling (rafting, kayaking), climbing (to the trees), snowboarding, hiking, photographing etc. Love the music. You can make music from anything and anywhere.
Even though I love all the season in different way, snow has always been close to my heart. I'm also interested about cultures.

Music, Movies, and Books

I just LOVE music. I like to sing a lot and of course I listen music almost everyday. I'm open for any kind of music that sounds good to my ears.

I don't watch that much movies but one Finnish movie has stayed on the top of my list. It's Kahlekuningas. When I was a kid, I watched lots of kung fu films and Jackie Chan was my idol. Love also the movie called In to the wild.

I'm not good at reading and it takes me really long time to finish a book. Recently I finished book called Tramping in New Zealand. Great story about enjoying the life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I really like Finnish summers. You can just see sun going round and round.
Twice I have been in Norway in this small island. It's diameter was just 5 km. They had there one little village and two other deserted villages.
Once I have seen the sunrise from the airplane on my way to Denmark. That was just awesome!!!

ICELAND!!! That is just country that I fell in love with.
