COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Amazing couchsurfing experience in Tampere, Finland in the Fun House!
Last summer I was tired of the Dutch 'Summer' and decided to head to Spain and experience a real summer. It was great 2 weeks with my backpack interrailing and couchsurfing trough Spain. Amazing solo tour experience. I learned a lot from all the conversations and places I visited with the help of my hosts. I know for sure I will never forget that summer and I am very grateful.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Northern Lights! Once in Lapland and once just 3 minutes aways from my flat. It was amazing, standing on a frozen lake, with 30 other students who randomly came out of their rooms as the news spread there was a great chance to see the northern lights that night. (and - 25 degrees!)
