About Me


Travel the world.


im a 20-year-old guy from Finland. After finishing highschool i served in the the army for a half year (which is obligatory in my country). Right after finishin the military we started to talk about a little longer trip. It didn't take a long time before we decided that a Round-the-world trip was what we wanted.. We worked our asses off, and travelled for 3 months.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


This far I have only 2 couchsurfing experiences but those are still one of the best things ive decided to do during my travels. I stayed for 4 days at a supercool guys place in Sydney and we had such a great time with him. I also did some couchsurfing in Wellington (NZ) where i got to stay at a beautiful farm close to Martinborough. Both of these guys made me love couchsurfing and im looking forward to make someone experience the same as i someday host somebody. Im really open-minded to host people in Finland too, as long as im home ofc :)
