About Me


I just graduated from the university in Finland, so it's time to travel again! My main subject was literature but I studied a lot of other things as well, including OCPR, journalism, Finnish language and philosophy. I love studying, but now it's time to take off and have some adventures. :)

Since I studied literature it's not hard to guess that I like reading and writing. Actually I like stories in all forms: in the movies, in theater, in comic books, people sharing them around campfire (metaphorically or literally)...

I love nature and I do a lot of environmental work. I'm also a vegan.

I have traveled a lot in Europe and in South America, where I lived for a while as an exchange student in Santiago de Chile. I have also lived in England, and for a while in St.Gallen (Switzerland) and Prague (Czech Republic).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I enjoy getting to know different cultures and personalities – and all the stories they have to share. :)


I'm interested in almost every kind of culture: literature, art, music, theater, social media etc. I'm open to adventures anywhere, anytime, but I also like silence and loneliness from time to time.

Music, Movies, and Books

Every time someone asks me about my favorite things I reply with "it depends". Everything is about the situation, my mood, the context... I really like almost any kind of art. I used to say I hate electronic music, but then I went to an electro swing party and I changed my mind.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I travelled the Amazon river with a canoe. It was my dream since I was a little girl.
