About Me

Hi guys!

I am an active person and enjoy doing things. My thing isn'€t usually going out for a coffee with a friend. Instead, I like to go for a walk, bowling, rock climbing, picnic, geocaching€.. to explore places! When I don'€t feel that active I like to hang around and relax, cook something, watch a movie or some good series..

Sometimes I like to party, but not that often as many of my friends do. Usually, I prefer spending the little money I have on something else. Let's say for example a road trip, nice dinner in a restaurant, stand up performance. Also surprisingly; I don'€t like hangovers :D But from time to time I "need" to get hammered too, so you never know, try me :)

To end up with, I'€d like to tell you I'm trying to live day by day, be open-minded, and making life as fun as I can :)

PHILOSOPHY

Pay it forward

Be the change you want to see

Experiences are more important than money

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Pay it Forward, Into the Wild, The Terminal, What happens in Vegas, Hoodwinked,... I have really bad movie memory. I can watch a movie in the evening, and the next morning I have no idea what was it all about. Or what was even the name of it :D So if I can name some movie, then it really was good!

Series: White Collar, Breaking Bad, Friends, How I met your mother, Community, Madventures, Pasila, South Park..

Music: Lindsey Striling, Dizzee Rascal, Jack Johnson, Calvin Harris, Regina Spector, Kings of Leon, Pendulum, The Prodigy.. Also almost every kind of Spanish music, as yet I have no idea what they are singing about but mostly they are happy-sounding songs, so they make me feeling good :)

Books: Ones to mention is His Dark Materials -trilogy. Those are really good books. But mostly I read books that makes me think and are hmm.. lets say guides to life :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

House-sized robot firebreathing, that was awesome!!

I hiked up, from peak to peak and all the way down the Gibraltar rock (largest freestanding granite monolith in the world) and Chief mountain (second largest freestanding..). So where is the third biggest one?

I quit my permanent employment in supermarket, and started studying process industry. It was out of my comfort zone; I didn't know anything at all related to that profession, and all my co-workers would be men. I was so scared whether I can make it or not. Luckily everything went better than expected,I got a job really quickly and I've never been this happy in my life with my job! :)
