About Me

CURRENT MISSION

surviving another finnish winter:)

ABOUT ME

I was working for over a year in advertising and with full respect to the marketing people, I decided to help the world to spend the money in more useful way:) That's why I switched to develpment projects and try to make the world a bit better.
I am now on the way to find my place on the earth and I think I have just done it!
Runeberg wrote in 1848:''Yes, I am ready to believe that there is only one country in the world for you and me in which we can find our idea of happiness, and that is Finland'' and this is all true!!!
I have been in Finland for more than a year, previously in magic Rovaniemi, now in Turku. So I am exploring the city right now and looking for the company to get as much as possible from this wonderful place.

PHILOSOPHY

Marek Kaminski (Polish explorer who reached 2 Poles in one year) said that the world is the ocean of possibilities. You just have to want to discover them! It's all about being brave enought to dream:)
I agree with that completely!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

No CouchSurfing Experience yet, as I am new in the club. But some very good experience with HospitalityClub:)

Interests

Getting to know new cultures, interesting tastes (even eating the dried and then cooked Cameroonian snails might be an experience!:)) and exploring the world. Biking, cross-country skiing (although I am worse than bad in winter sports in general) and jogging. I am definitely not a couch-potato person:)

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy the European cinema, although somethimes is so depressing that enough is enough. Then it's good to watch some good and funny romantic comedy, why not?:)
And about the music: in Lapland I felt in love with the Sami rythmes, now listening again and again the Angelit ''Mannu'' album - magic...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ice swimming: sauna, lake, minus 27 outside, northern lights... deadly romantic and deadly exciting:)
