About Me


See and experience new places, live my life to the fullest


I'm still searching for the place where I'm the happiest, for the job I'd love and other things that would make me even happier. I think I'm halfway there.
I consider myself a people person. I'm usually pretty optimistic and happy and refuse to lose that thing little children have: being excited and happy about the little things in life. My star sign is Virgo and I'm surprised how well its characteristics describe me sometimes!
If I had superpowers I wish I could fly, just because that would make traveling so much easier. Though, I’m terrified of flying. As a Finn I obviously love ice hockey. I find clowns scary and I love sushi and Starbucks.


Just trying to be happy and do things I like, I'm really trying to learn to seize opportunities and take chances.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm still a CouchSurfing virgin. I'm currently traveling and would love to make the experience even better by meeting interesting people along the way


People, traveling, new cultures, seeing and experiencing new things

Music, Movies, and Books

I love especially Brit rock but the list of favorite music goes on and on.. If I'd get to go to any concert I want it would be Greenday, hands down. Same with the movies that I love. The curious case of Benjamin Button was awesome, as well as the Lord of the rings, the Boat that rocked and Bridget Jones' diary.. Dramas with a bit of comedy are the best.
I used to read more but somehow can't find the time to do that anymore. Alchemist by Paolo Coelho is probably the best book I've read.

So many things have left a lasting impact..! Maybe seeing Halong Bay in sunset..
