About Me

To do all those cheezy but important things like "grow as a person", "see the world" and "meet new, inspiring people"

Okay, this is really hard to do yourself, so I, Ella (Marju's wonderfully awesome Finnish friend) will tell a little something about Marju;

When I first saw this little ray of sunlight, she was smiling and just radiating good energy all over. She is one of the cutest and most warmhearted girls that I have ever met and anybody hosting her should feel honored :P
This lovable, art loving, surfer can be yours, for only a couch or mattress! And that's not all, when receiving the ever-smiling Estonian, you also receive a big load of good will and excitement about the little things in life.

PHILOSOPHY
Mahatma Gandhi — 'Be the change that you wish to see in the world.'

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I love to couchsurf when I travel, because it is a good way to see the real soul of the place through people. I'm interested not only in sightseeing, but also I would like to feel the life in the current place and meet people.

Every experience in CS has been positive so far. I consider myself very lucky person, so maybe therefore I have met only nice and interesting people!
I have couch-surfed in Denmark, Sweden, Estonia, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy, England, South Korea, Portugal etc.

Interests

Contemporary art, Swing- and ballroom dance, jazz music, poetry, spontaneous events, tea and coffee nature, vegan cooking, baking, photography and all the animals in the world.

I'm passionate about cooking healthy dishes and delicious sweets. If you would like to share spices & herbs from you own country, I would be very curious to try them out! My other big hobby is quality tea and coffee.

Music, Movies & Books

Films and animations:
Wall-e, Despicable Me, Up, Ratatouille, Monsters Inc., Boxtrolls, All The Invisible Children etc.

Music:
jazz, classical (especially baroque), electro swing, bossa nova, folk, indie rock

Book:
The China Study by T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell

One Amazing Thing I've Done

- Taking tram nr 28 through the small streets of Lisbon.

- Swinging on a swing above the Tropical Spice Garden on Penang Island in Malaysia (Dec, 2014).

- Private tea ceremony in Kyoto, Japan (Apr, 2014)

- Enjoying the sunset in the bog (Muraka raba) near my home in Estonia (July, 2014).
Swimming in a lake (Kurtna) at night with the supermoon in the sky (Aug, 2014).

Teach, Learn, Share

I love wines and all kinds of teas from different parts of the world.
Also I can teach you how to "see" the nature and art around you =)

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can tell you a lot about teas and you can taste them at my home. I know the details about preparing a good cup of tea, health benefits and much more.
