About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see and explore the unknown!

ABOUT ME

A guy in his late 20s who loves travelling! Backpacking preferred but since I'm getting closer to 30 and older some more comfort is required :D Still rocking hostels and sleeping at peoples couches though!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My friends have been telling me nice stories about CS so I decided to join as well. Now I've met lots of interesting people and made life-long friendships because of this awesome website!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Trying to be as active as possible! Great way to meet people and also save a few bucks as well ;) I still haven't been to a single CS gathering but I will someday!

Music, Movies, and Books

Rock music mostly older Bon Jovi and some current good ones as well. For some reason I tend to listen to Dire Straits a lot when travelling so that as well.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Bungee jump was quite amazing :P Especially for a guy who's afraid of heights! Well, maybe my first year abroad has been the best so far. Before that I hadn't been abroad by myself so I decided to take the leap of faith a leave everything behind for a year! And that was definitely the right choice! By doing that I became addicted to traveling and since my first trip I've been more abroad than in Finland!

Teach, Learn, Share

The best thing in couchsurfing is that you are able to talk and live with local people. People who actually live and work in that country. They can tell you how things really are in that country and they can and most likely will take you to some really random and unique places. CS is also a good way to get connected you know. Even though you would never see some CS-guy again still you know that when you go to his/her country you have someone there to hang out with you! :D
