About Me


Be the change you want to see in the world.


I am an open minded person with a big heart! I want people around me to feel comfortable and to have good time. I am spontaneous and outgoing person, who believes in good in people. I love long talks and coffees with friends, nights on the beach, discovering the secrets of the world.


It's not the years that count but the moments, laughters and friends you made during your journey.


Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to travel and get to know new people from different walks. Whenever I am traveling in a new location I want to get a good insight of the new culture and the best way to do it is to get to know the locals:)!! Furthermore I am more than willing to meet travelers and show them my awesome city!!!


Me and my friend were having a night out in Turku and we had nowhere to go. Two lads offered us a ride and we ended up staying in their couch accompanied by a hello kitty pillow!!! One of the guys was a huge fan of CS and after that I decided to join CS as well!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Wow, I must say that there are absolutely too many amazing things I have seen during my lifetime but if I have to pick one it would be definitely when a stranger from the street became my brother and part of our family.

I have also worked as an elephant guide in Thailand.
