About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To hear the tiny voice. To let me be me.

ABOUT ME

When Olga, 4 years, was asked were there other children in the summer cottage trip, Olga said yes, there was Lotta.

I´m playful, curious and get easily exited about little things like funny looking tree or words that taste nice in mouth. I look the world through wide open eyes and I never get tired of admiring the little and grand wonders around me.

Now I'm travelling. In an adventurous way, little planning and a lot of going with a flow. Many amazing and surprising moments has come to my way. And I'm really grateful that I've been so open to notice them.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I started now because I´m going to need coaches on my trip and I want to meet people who can introduce me their culture and habits and way of living.

Interests

Circus, theatre, dance, improvisation, culture, cats, horses, moon, sea, sauna, occasional street art, silence... My newest thing is tubing. (Planking is so out:)It´s like crowling through a small hole in a building or in a chair or in between the steps... We can try that together.

Beside of tubing, I like climbing. Climbing on a tree, on a chinese pole, on a human body. I like to be upside down. Luckily I have found circus. Circus is my life and passion. For me the art of circus is an odd and absurd world where everything can happen. I´m an acrobat and performer in progressive circus group Company Uusi Maailma. That means most of my days I do something to do with circus: I train acrobatics, I teach acrobatics, I check e-mails and write raports and clean the rehearsing space...

Beside of training i like trains. The feeling of staying still but moving.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have slept in a cave (nature made), in a snow fort (self-made), in a straw hut (self-made).

The cave wasn´t far from my home in Jyvaskyla and it was incredible experience. With flares inside a rock like dwarfs. The experience of tubing was useful.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach acrobatics, do contact improvisation with you and introduce you the new art of tubing.

Countries I've Visited

Belgium, China, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Latvia, Mongolia, Nepal, Norway, Poland, Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Viet Nam
