About Me

Hello you! I am Mari. Lost in Helsinki since 2015.

Note that I CANNOT host anybody at the moment, my place in Helsinki is very tiny. Also I will be travelling a lot this summer so I am not necessarily in Helsinki. Enjoy your stay even I am not around!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The world feels like a cozy place when you think about all the friendly and welcoming people participating in CS. :)


Even though I am open minded and get easily excited about new things and adventures I also need calm time to charge: conversations with endless amount of tea, writing, doing yoga, walking in the forest.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking in Finnish Lapland, Road-trip in Iceland and studying puppet theatre in Romania... oops that was three things things!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always up to learn new things let it be about new cultures or about astrophysics. I love to hear people's stories and I know some funny ones too.

I am happy to teach you some finnish, 84th biggest language in the world (the useless fact of the day) In return I really enjoy (trying to) learn other languages too.

I am not a kitchen-magician but I'd love to cook together. I am mainly vegetarian but flexible and easy-going one.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Big smile and hopefully enjoyable conversations (+ food! ) ^___^
