Join Couchsurfing to see Olli’s full profile.
We are Olli, Laura, Leevi (born 2011) and Aliina (born 2016), a family living in Kuopio.
We have space in quest room to host surfers. While traveling we like to get to now local people in order to understand the culture a bit more.
I'm doing research in the University of Eastern Finland. Laura is working in local University Hospital as a nurce. And our kids are playing, sleeping, eating and growing up in a fast phase.
Please note that before year 2011 I was living in a apartment with three other people who helped a lot to host people, so referencens left before 2011 refer to that appartment, not to the present one.
You should enjoy life, be positive.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We have been hosting since fall of 2009.
We have met really nice people from all over the world! And with hosting, it's almost like traveling without moving as you get to know different cultures in your own home.
Well, common interest for both of us is travelling. We both have done exchange studies abroad, me in Ireland and Laura in India, we have done interrail trip in Europe and Laura has been a volynteer in Israel and we all went to Ghana. Other interest are board games, reading, music, wines, beer and cooking.
- board games
Music, Movies, and Books
Plenty, but just to say some: I like Hemingway, but we read more science books. Currently I'm listening plenty of bands that mix traditional elements to rock or punk, and we both like to watch Miyazakis movies...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Surfed in Ireland, Biked in Alcase, Hiked in Negev, Snowboarded in Patakukkulat...
Teach, Learn, Share
Pharmacy, health care, snowboarding, board games, finnish (did you know that it's the language that Tolkien used as an inspiration to the great elven language...).
Interested to always learn more about history, religion, politics, ideas and ideologies. About the motives of peoples actions.
