About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Doing the things Snufkin does

ABOUT ME

I'm terrible when I'm hungry, but most of the time I enjoy both everyday life as well as all the strange things this complex world has to offer.

PHILOSOPHY

It's not about the destination it's about the road

(Snufkin is a cool character in a series of finnish books + comics. He's a modest traveller, playing the harmonica, enjoying the peacefulness of nature.)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Couchsurfing for me is about meeting people. I rather host somebody without a schedule, and for longer than a night. Same thing when surfing, I'm not just after a free place to stay. Not that I expect anything from my host, but doing something together is a lot more fun :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

CS is great. So far I mostly hosted, but also enjoy surfing a lot or just meeting locals and fellow travellers.

Interests

Flea markets! I really like digging through old stuff. I study architecture, like bicycling, chocolate, art, good-looking things, pin-hole cameras, skate/wake/surf/long/snowboarding, strange food. Lately also space and the distant future.

Music, Movies & Books

I like small books. Books that can fit in my pocket. Regarding content, non-fiction and art-books interest me most.

I like long songs. No really it sounds ridiculous but a beat that lasts for 10 min is usually better than a 3-min pop song. I listen mainly to electronic but there is a time and a place for all music.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hitch hiking is amazing. Goodwill outlets are amazing. Adrenaline. I'm a citykid and everything about nature amazes me - indonesian waves, swiss alps, californian redwoods, rainforests, islands, deserts. The diversity of our species is amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm pretty good at getting things repaired I suppose. I want to learn more about analog photography, and I'm working on japanese. In general I enjoy doing things with my hands.

Countries I've Visited

Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, China, Denmark, Germany, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Switzerland, United States

Countries I've Lived In

Finland
