About Me


mission impossible :D


I'm semi-allergic to furry animals but I love cats. Just need the sleeping space in a separate room. I can accept hosts only with references.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


recent years I have spent more time outside than inside my home country Finland. when having a base, I gladly welcome surfers. when on the road, I'm happy to crash a couch and make new friends :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

all the amazing people I have met

Teach, Learn, Share

i think i'm not the teacher type, but certainly we can learn something from everyone :)

i have a minimalistic lifestyle; i collect experiences not material. i try to follow a sustainable way of living in everyday life for example by flying less and choosing train or bus instead when available, recycling and reusing things when applicable. i never throw food away, that is what i learned at home as a child.

the great idea of couchsurfing is making new friends all over the world with like-minded people. if you have other motives besides cultural exchange please do not send me any request nor accept my couch request. for dating there are other platforms available.

here's an example of the tackiest offer I have received (sure way to get blacklisted):
"Hello, I live in Baku and I can offer you a host on those days. My place is small in the city center, so we have to share beds. But beware, I am too handsome guy. So, accept only if you believe that, you can resist temptation and don't offer me any kind of sexual intercourse."

What I Can Share with Hosts

travel experiences and company for activities. don't hesitate to ask if you need a strong person to carry something or tall person to reach something that is high because for me it's not a big deal to offer my helping hand :)
